We are making some daily coaching videos to help you apply the scripture we talk about on Sunday to your Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. The end game for us as a church is not merely attendance on Sundays (as extremely important as that is!). The end game is that we are taking that truth from scripture we learn on Sunday and apply it to our lives daily.
This is the essence of discipleship – when our lives look more and more like Christ:
5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. (1 John 2:5-6)
So, each day is an opportunity for us to follow Christ more than we did yesterday. Each day is an opportunity for Christ to transform us more into his likeness and to chip of the remnants of the old man. Each day, by keeping his word, God perfects His love in us. Each day, as we walk in the same way Jesus walked, we know we are in Him and in the light.
This isn’t a religious activity. This isn’t another thing to add to your busy life. Instead, it’s a chance for us to reorient our lives. It’s a chance for us to stop each day, pull out the compass and make sure it’s pointing to true north.
By reorienting every day, the corrections are smaller and, therefore, easier to make. Waiting until each Sunday to make adjustments makes making adjustments much more challenging.
So, let’s journey together. Let’s become disciples together. Let’s look more like Christ each day, together.
