Your Plus 1 Assignment: This week I want to encourage you, as I did in an email early last week, to do something Dangerously Good: Pray about one friend or family you want to invite to a Grace event and do so in the next 5 weeks!
FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… One high and one low from your day.|
|Read… Jesus Calls the First Disciples (Mark 1:16-20)
As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.
|Talk… What if Jesus were to walk up to you tomorrow around 10 am and say, “Follow me!” What would you do? How do you see yourself already following Jesus at 10 am or any other time of the day? What is it about Jesus that moves his disciples to leave everything and follow him? What is it about Jesus that inspires you to follow him?|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
