Next Sunday (7/28): “Build Your House on the Rock” (Mt 7:21-23)  


Where are you at in your walk with God?

1.    Do I really believe that I cannot save myself? Or do I feel that as long as I am on doing “small” sins, then it is not a problem.



2.    Do I read the Bible and listen to the Word of God as the true, living, breathing Word, or merely an old instruction manual that can be utilized whenever I might have a few extra parts left over?



3.    Are you growing more in love with Jesus every day? Or was your salvation point simply a flash in the pan experience?



4.    Are you serving the church with enthusiasm? When you serve do you do so out of an overflowing joy from your heart or from a position of begrudged duty, and it is simply a have to do?



5.    Are you serving for the Lord or are you serving for the logo that is on the sign outside?


6.    Are you continuously changing? Can you look back on your life from before trusting God to now and actually see a difference? Would other people say they can see a difference?


7.    Do you eagerly share about your faith and about Jesus? Or is it a topic reserved for a small select circle of people?


8.    Are you taking advantage of the opportunities of discipleship? Do you recognize the importance of being discipled?


9.    Are you becoming simply a spectator to Christianity? Do you serve Christ only when it is comfortable to you and you allow it?
