WHY? Get Involved

“There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.”   -Carl Sandberg

 

Soak and Share

Soak and Share is a way for you to take Sunday’s teaching to the next level and challenges you to soak in (reflect on) the teachings and share them with others.

 The Soak & Share for this week is to make time for the Word, reflect and pray. It is designed to stimulate conversation and improve your reflective time. You can use this to reflect individually or for group discussions.

READ & REFLECT     Mark 10: 35-45

How did Jesus explain His mission in vs. 45?

In what ways did Jesus model what he was teaching, for his disciples to also learn from?

 READ & REFLECT     Philippians 2: 5-8

What attitude are we to have toward serving others?

How do you feel as you think about what Jesus did to serve you?

Who are the people in my life that I am resisting serving due to my selfishness?

How could you seek out to serve others joyfully?

READ & REFLECT     Luke 2: 36-38

Why do you think I chose Anna as an example of serving?

Put yourself in Anna’s place. What about her service would have been most difficult for you? Why?

 READ & REFLECT     Judges 6: 14-16

What kind of excuses do we make to keep us from serving others?

 **Reflection: Ask God to show you ways to serve another person this week, particularly someone who is hard to love. Write down what God shows you to do, and later write down what you did about it.
