APPLICATION / CHALLENGE
- Like Mary, determine to be a person of great availability. Find a place to serve here at TCC. Learn more about serving.
- Trust God to be true to his Word. Let the Bible, not culture, shape your values and view of reality.
- Enlarge your view of God by meditating upon his Word. Start with Isaiah 40 (see “Digging Deeper”).
- Make God’s glory a higher goal than your own reputation.
- Want a copy of More Than a Carpenter, the book that Pastor Doug offered? Call our office (919-362-9996) to arrange a pick-up time.
TAKE ONE STEP
Each week, write down one doable concrete step of obedience, small or large, that you will put into practice this week. (James 1:22: “But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.”)
Community group leaders, use this version of TP/WP to prepare for meaningful discussion during your Community Group.
