Community is about relationship. Take time to listen to and engage in one another’s stories.
What’s a habit (good or bad) in your life that you do repeatedly and perhaps… unknowingly? Looking back, how did this habit take shape in your life?
What spiritual habits – or lack thereof – currently shape the way you see and experience God? If you could add or improve something, what would it be?
Engaging The Scriptures
Read Romans 12:1-2
Paul tells us to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice. Why do you think he says this as opposed to our minds, hearts, or lives?
In order to sit conforming to the world’s patterns, we need to be aware of them. What “patterns” do you see forming our minds and hearts in the world around us?
Instead of obeying God’s will to be changed, Paul pushes us to be changed in order to know God’s will. How does this shift our perspective on how to follow Jesus in our day to day lives?
Pay Attention To Your Life. Self awareness doesn’t always come easy. It takes intentionality to not only look, but be honest about our lives. This week, pay attention to the habits and patterns that are shaping your life. What are the habits that are de-forming you away from Christ? What are the habits that are re-forming you to be like Him? As you pay attention, talk it over in community.
