About The Series: Passionate Spirituality
When people are asked to describe a spiritual person, the general description involves things like, they aren’t flashy or extreme. They tend to be “soft” and avoid conflict. They tend to be old, early risers, plain dressers, and have physically slow movements. So basically a spiritual person is pictured as an old Kung Fu teacher. Is that what passionate spirituality looks like?
Do The Homework
Click on the titles below to view the homework for each message. If you’ve not listened to the messages yet, we encourage to listen to them first to better understand the purpose of this homework.
- Get in a LifeGroup and begin to find a place to serve. You can’t get into deeper relationships in God’s church simply sitting here on Sunday morning. Bluntly? If you’ve been attending here for more than a year and you haven’t gotten into a small group or you’re not serving somewhere… what’s the point? We want to really encourage you to BE the Church, not just attend it. That’s scary to say, because we know saying that could cause attendance and giving to drop… but we’re not as interested in that as we are your spiritual growth and health.
- Pray and read your Bible daily. We’re going to post things daily to pray about and a Bible reading schedule online. Visit our Facebook page to get involved.
- Commit to not missing a Sunday unless you are working or out of town. This isn’t one of those things you can do on your own. We need you here because this challenge can only be done with all of us together.
Take the quiz and go over the list of 10 things that indicate your first love. Then write down ways you’d like to change and some actions that would allow that to happen.
- Devotion to prayer: sign up to pray with our 30 Day Prayer Commitment
- Attentiveness in prayer: set an alarm to remind you to pray every hour.
- Persistence in prayer: check in on Facebook to see what you can pray about and let us know that you prayed by following the link, checking the box, and submitting it to us so we can encourage others who’ve made this commitment.
- Supernaturally powered: spend as much time listening as talking in your prayer time.
- Expectancy in prayer: keep a journal and log your requests, praises and answered prayers.
If you’d like to know more about confession, we encourage you to talk to one of our staff members. If you’ve been thinking about Celebrate Recovery at all, maybe God is telling you that you need to start the healing process.
Set your record for your consecutive Sunday’s attendance in worship.
Find one thing each day you’re going to work on. Maybe it’s language or anger or acts of kindness. Make it specific. Then see what kind of passion begins to build as you let the breath of God fill your life.
For the word of the Lord holds true,
and we can trust everything he does.
He loves whatever is just and good;
the unfailing love of the Lord fills the earth.
The Lord merely spoke,
and the heavens were created.
He breathed the word,
and all the stars were born.
He assigned the sea its boundaries
and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
Let the whole world fear the Lord,
and let everyone stand in awe of him.
For when he spoke, the world began!
It appeared at his command.
Psalm 33:4-9 (NLT)
