Transformation

Journal

Inviting you to daily time with God
 
 
Each day, the Transformation Journal will offer you a scripture passage and a question or two for reflection relating to the topic of each weeks sermon. 
The prayer list is also on the back, so please take time to pray for those we have lifted up on Sunday.
 
Sunday, July 26th
 
Re-read todays scripture passage (Ephesians 3:14-21). This prayer talks a lot about loveboth knowing Gods love and being rooted and grounded in that love. 
Is your life rooted and grounded in Gods love? How does being rooted and grounded in Gods love impact you?

Read 2 Corinthians 4:7-18. Paul talks about the idea that despite our troubles, we are being renewed every day (verse 16). What is troubling you today? 
How is God working to renew you even in the face of these troubles?

Read Romans 12:1-2. In this passage, Paul encourages us not to conform to the world around us but to be transformed. 
What are some ways that you are tempted to conform to the world and be drawn away from God? How can you be transformed?

Read John 15:1-11. In this passage, Jesus talks about the importance of abiding in him. Abiding in Christ leads to fruit in our lives. 
Have you seen this fruit in your life? Do you feel that you are abiding in Christ?

Friday, July 31st
Read Luke 18:9-14. Who do you identify with more in this story, the Pharisee or the tax collector? Jesus said that the tax collector went away justified.
