A GOD-LIVED LIFE STEWARDSHIP CHALLENGE

What does a God-lived life look like? It looks like Jesus.
God became man and lived life in our place. Christ lived the perfect God-lived life. Living as a Christian, a little Christ, we have the privilege of demonstrating what God looks like in how we live our lives, in living lives that show God. God’s Word will be challenging us, and we’ll be challenging one another to live a God-lived life. And that encompasses everything. We will be talking about a life of being a disciple, a life lived for others, a life of hospitality, and a life lived shrewdly. Each month, we will be introduced to a challenge that we then prayerfully commit to carrying out the rest of the month. These challenges ask us—people who are moved by the grace of God and Jesus’ life and death in our place—to commit to acting on the encouragements to put the Word into practice. How will we commit to the challenges? As individual members, we are going to fill out a different challenge card each month. This will help to involve our entire family of faith in the challenges and help us encourage each other in the challenges.
Below are cards that the help you navigate each month as a way to grow in your faith.
May God bless us as we grow in his Word and in our lives of living it

A GOD-LIVED LIFE: A life of being a disciple

This month, the particular focus of the God-lived life is that of being a disciple, a learner, one who grows in God’s Word.  May God’s Word cause us to crave that pure spiritual milk so that by it we grow up in our salvation.

Our challenge card this month will focus on growing and learning in God’s Word. What’s your biggest motivation for spending time in God’s Word? What’s your biggest obstacle to spending time in God’s Word? What can help you overcome that obstacle? How can you build Bible study and prayer time into your regular routine?

A GOD-LIVED LIFE: A Life of Service to Others

This month, the particular focus of the God-lived life is a life lived for others, a life of generosity. God allows us the opportunity to serve and love one another, especially those who are part of our communities.

Our challenge card this month will focus on growing and learning in God’s Word. What makes someone a good neighbor? How can you show God’s love to others by being a good neighbor? How can our church be a good neighbor to our community? How can we be present for others?
