Sit See Share
This season, our hope is for each person in our church family to encounter Jesus and experience the joy of living for Him. We hope to accomplish this in three practical ways.
1. SIT WITH THE LORD.
Set aside 30 minutes (or more) each day to just be with the Lord. It can be in the morning or during your lunch break or at night before bed. The holiday season can be so busy — with parties and activities and festivities — and it is so valuable to be still. Read the Bible. Pray. Listen to the Lord by sitting in silence. If you don’t know what to read in the bible, I suggest reading one chapter each day in the book of Luke. Come into His presence and ask, “What do you want me to hear today?” And then listen, because He will speak!
2. SEE WHAT THE LORD IS DOING AROUND YOU.
Look for opportunities to serve. Who are the people in your office that are discouraged and sad and how might GOD want you to help them? Who are the people you’ll meet at your spouse’s Christmas party and how can you take advantage, in conversation, of the few minutes you’ll get with them? Who are the neighbors that need help or a hug or prayer or all three? When you spend time in GOD’s presence, you don’t want to keep what He does in you all to yourself. Will you see what GOD is doing around you and join Him?
3. SHARE WHERE YOU SAW THE LORD.
Share where you needed his grace. I imagine you sitting around with your friends at Baja at dinner or at night in the living room with your roommates or around the dinner table with your families sharing each day where you experienced or where you needed the Lord. This is a way for us to reflect and be thankful, but also to testify to the ways the Lord is working and how we’re intentionally pursuing Him in this season.
We have shared some ideas and resources to help you accomplish these three things. You can find them here.
