Spiritual Checkup

Spiritual checkup
One of the great traditions we have at C3 is choosing a Scripture Verse of the Year to help guide us through what the New Year brings. The process we have been using for sometime now is called a Spiritual Check-Up. Like going to the Dr. yearly to check on your physical condition, a spiritual check up helps us diagnosis our spiritual condition.

(Five questions to ask yourself to help you lead a healthy, purposeful life)

1. What was my scripture verse of the year for 2014?
If you chose one last year why did you choose that one? Reclaim it as your own.

2. Through what difficulties last year did God try to teach me to rely on Him?
Remember some specific difficult times you went through and look back to see how God was with you through them.

3. What fruit of the Spirit does God want to grow greater in me this year?
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)

4. What ministry gifts does God want to develop greater in me in the coming year?
The way we develop gifts is to use them in service to others find a ministry in the church and help others. Find them Romans 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Corinthians 12:28.

5. What is God putting on my heart to be your scripture verse of the year for 2015?
Take time this week to turn off your t.v. and computer, open up God’s word and ask him to lead you to a verse that will lead you in the coming year.

Your pastor and partner in ministry,

Your Verse
Memorize it. Meditate on it. Mark it on the wall of the service you attend.
