LifePointe’s Mission: Pointing people to life in Jesus
Grow in our relationship with God
Grow in our relationship with God
This value is about each individual follower of Jesus focusing on what they
need to do in order to grow in their personal relationship with Jesus
We would be foolish to expect our relationships to be healthy and growing if
we haven’t been putting in the work to develop them
Spiritual growth doesn’t come easy
You are responsible for your own spiritual growth; therefore, you must take
ownership of your faith
What should we do in order to grow in our relationship with Jesus?
In order to grow in our relationship with God, we must spend time with Him
“It’s a great temptation to serve at the expense of being fed spiritually.”
–George Guthrie
Are we so busy serving Jesus that we do not take time to be with Jesus?
“I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.”
–Martin Luther
How do we spend time with God? What does that look like?
How do we spend time with God? Practice Spiritual Disciplines:
-Read, Study, and Memorize Scripture
-Pray
-Fast (to abstain from something, usually food, for the purpose of focusing on
your relationship with God)
-Give
Assess your relationship with God:
Am I growing in my relationship with God and moving toward spiritual
maturity?
Has my relationship with God become stagnant?
What changes can I make to my daily routine to allow time for sitting at the
feet of Jesus?
What spiritual discipline can I utilize in my life order to grow in my
relationship with God?
Since God has wired us for relationship, who can hold me accountable to
spending time with Jesus?
