APPLICATION / CHALLENGE
- Is there someone in your life toward whom you know you should show more compassion? Simply confess your lack of compassion and ask for God’s forgiveness and help to change.
- Complete this week’s “Digging Deeper” section of Talking Points, Walking Points. It focuses on the compassion of God, and how we can become more like him.
- Begin praying for God to soften your heart and and to open your eyes to his opportunities to show compassion toward a neighbor.
- Make sure you’re not trusting in your own goodness or obedience to God’s law in order to gain his acceptance. If you’ve not yet done so, trust Christ alone as your sin-bearer. If you would like to trust Christ as Savior, learn more or contact us. We look forward to helping!
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.”)
