THE LYONS SHARE Aspire to inspire before you expire. COURAGE. what is it? DO I NEED IT ALWAYS, OR ONLY IN TIMES OF DANGER? where do I get some? IS IT COURAGE IF I'M STILL AFRAID? what about courage to live? TO DIE? how about courage for navigating the waters of a global economic crisis? COURAGE TO FACE A DIFFICULT FAMILY SITUATION? courage to deal with addiction? COURAGE TO FACE LONELINESS? what does courageous living look like? HOW DOES A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AFFECT MY COURAGE? Sunday, October 16th, Pastor Lyons begins COURAGE, the fall Celebration series, at 9:30 & 11:00am. Suggested ways you can directly contribute to the vitality of your church. PRAY for your pastors Perhaps you could pray for one pastor each day. Maybe there is a particular time during the week that would be conducive to remembering to pray for the pastors. Pray for them by name. Pray for their spiritual health, their marriages, their parenting, the Sprit-empowered use of their gifts, protection against the enemy and his wiles. Pray for your Grow Group leader. Pray for your Bible Study leader. PREPARE for Sunday on Saturday night. Any event we count as significant involves preparation. What things cared for on Saturday night will best enable you to get a good start on the Lord's Day morning? A Saturday night preparation routine would be a great discipline for you and your family. ARRIVE at least 15 minutes before service or Bible Study start time. Your responsibilities may call for you to be here earlier. Certainly, you should be responsible in that way. Arriving early with the specific intention of being available to help if needed, specifically seeking out someone unknown to you to greet and welcome or having a few minutes to pray, all enable you to add a small contribution to what God wants to do. GREET and welcome someone unfamiliar to you. You may have seen the person before, maybe not, but a personal introduction and a warm welcome goes a long way. PRAY during the service or the Bible Study. You may pray for the leader or someone sitting near you or regarding the truth God is seeking to sow into your life. ENCOURAGE those who serve. It may be someone who is serving you but not necessarily. It only takes a moment to look into someone's eyes, smile and say an encouraging word. You know what that means to you. Give it away to someone else. FAITHFULLY contribute to God's work with your tithes and offerings. Your consistency matters. Our faithfulness enables what God wants to do through us. Every time we miss because of vacation or sickness, and fail to make it up, God's work through us stands to be hindered. REACH OUT to someone during the week. Email, text, Facebook, call a brother or sister who God puts on your mind with a sentence or two of prayer, blessing or other encouragement.
