Practices to engage.
Re-read Paul's farewell speech in Acts 20.18-35 prayerfully, out loud, several times. What words stay with you? Write them down and commit to prayerfully ask God to show you what they might mean for you, and to give you the faith and boldness to follow through on whatever response you sense God is asking of you.
From last week:
1. Take time each day, perhaps more than once a day, to prayerfully declare these truths over you life and household. Memorize them or write them down somewhere for easy access: I am one in whom Christ dwells and delights. I live in the strong and unshakeable kingdom of God. The kingdom is not in trouble, and neither am I.
2. Pray each day for the rest of 2020 for all those involved in seeking healing an hope in the three challenges mentioned in the sermon: the pandemic, civil unrest over racism, and the presidential election year.
