This week we’ve discussed the value of community in helping us to grow in spiritual maturity. Being accountable to one another helps encourage us and guard our hearts against sinful behaviors. Below are a few questions to challenge us to think about ways we can invite more accountability in our lives.
Get Plugged into a Local Church
- Are you currently attending a church?
- If not, what are your reasons for not attending?
- Do any of those reasons include being hurt by people in the church?
- Hurtful experiences inflicted from those in the church can crush our spirits.
- What would it take for you to get involved in a local church again?
- If you do have a church home, how involved are you? In what ways could you build deeper connection?
- Who are the people who help you grow? Who lovingly corrects you? Who are your biggest spiritual cheerleaders?
- If you don’t have anyone, reach out to your local church pastor or someone in leadership to help you find someone.
- Get involved in a small group at church.
- What other ways can you invite accountability into your life?
Service to Others
- Who are the people you disciple or serve? Who do you lovingly correct? Whose cheerleader are you?
- If you don’t have anyone, look for ways to get involved in your local church. Is there a mentoring or discipleship program that facilitates one-on-one relationships?
- Is there a small group you can lead?
- What other ways can you think of to be involved in helping others grow spiritually?
