Sharing God’s Work through His Word | 01

Written By Ben Laur

Associate Pastor - Olathe Campus

The discipline of study is not meant to stop with our internal awareness but should overflow in generosity for what God has revealed to you. As we tell others about what God has taught us, how He has changed our understanding, or how He has changed us, we present others with a precious gift: the opportunity to experience that same transformation by God.

Look back through the Tuesday article, Hearing God’s Word Through Others

ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT:
  • How have you seen God’s Word at work in your life, and what has He been teaching you through your practice of the disciplines?
  • Talking with non-Christians about God can sometimes be intimidating, so why not begin first by telling another believer about the work God is doing in your life?
  • Maybe it will come up naturally in your conversation, or maybe you will need to bring it up. However it happens, make it a point this weekend to honor someone else by telling them about something that God is teaching you.

    Ben, I’m a little confused; yesterday’s scripture was Luke 22: 61-62, I think. Today, we’re asked to read 31-32.

      Susan, I can see how that could be confusing. For this period in The Formed Life, Tuesdays and Thursdays are paired together, so that on Tuesday there is an opportunity to learn about a portion of Scripture from a voice of the past, while on Thursday there is a prompt to share God’s Word – whether from Tuesday or anywhere else – with someone else. So because of that, the Scripture readings may not always be arranged sequentially.

Evening Prayer – How you end your day impacts rest and rejuvenation for the next. God’s people throughout history have practiced a surrendering of all things in prayer before they laid down to sleep. While we zero in on the discipline of prayer, each Sunday we will engage in two prayers, allowing the repetition to help us be at home in these prayers.

Morning Prayer – How you start your day informs how you go about your day. Throughout history, God’s people rose early to focus their heart, soul, mind and strength in prayer with God. While we zero in on the discipline of prayer, each Sunday we will engage in two prayers, allowing the repetition to help us be at home in these prayers.
