Outline for 13 Jan 08

Make a Plan

Remember: God has a plan for your life! (Jer 29:11)

Making a plan for spiritual growth

Step One:
Assess your old plan (or lack of a plan)

Ask: Is it working? Are you growing?
If you are growing you have: Fruit (Gal 5:22)
If you aren’t, you have : Works (Gal 5:19-21)

Step Two:
Set some goals for spiritual growth
Avoid goals like:
“I will _______ more”

Choose to grow in your relationship with Jesus

Step Three
Align your plan with God’s plan
Proverbs 19:21 “man has a plan, but God’s purpose wins”
See also Acts 26

His plan for you involves:
Sharing your faith (Evangelism)
Tell your story! In your words. (Mt 28:18)

Sharing your gift (Service)
Grow to maturity (Eph 4:11-12)

Sharing your life (Fellowship)
Be like Jesus (Rom 8:28)
