Day 6: Engaging the World with our Speach
Listen to Arica's Sunday sermon which inspired this series here.
What stood out to me today as I read it?
Take a moment or two to meditate on verse 17-18. You might want to record it on your phone and play it back a few times.
“So I say this, and insist in the Lord, that you no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding, being alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardness of their hearts.”
Given my understanding of Scripture and my work with THINK, how might I react to and interact with “Gentiles” moving forward?
- At least once today, I will consciously choose to react within a conversation in the way I specified above.
- At least once today, I will consciously choose to react to a blog post, Facebook post, or tweet in the way I specified above.
Blessings in Jesus,
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who hast purchased to thyself a universal Church by the precious blood of thy dear Son; Mercifully look upon the same, and at this time so guide and govern the minds of thy servants the Bishops and Pastors of thy flock, that they may lay hands suddenly on no man, but faithfully and wisely make choice of fit persons, to serve in the sacred Ministry of thy Church. And to those who shall be ordained to any holy function, give thy grace and heavenly benediction; that both by their life and doctrine they may show forth thy glory, and set forward the salvation of all men; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
