Live It Out | A Daily Discipleship Guide

Monday | Read/Listen to 1 Timothy 3:1-16 and Titus 1:1-16 | Worship to More Like Jesus 

A faith-filled community imitates Jesus. Do you tend to think first about others or yourself as you read these passages? Do you find yourself challenged, encouraged, or discouraged by the “high bar” set for leaders and servants in the household of God? Why is a community of people essential for you to imitate Jesus? What has Jesus already done to make you more like him? Ask Jesus, “What do you want to work on in me today?”

Tuesday | Read/Listen to 1 Timothy 3:1-16 | Worship to Your Church

We exist to reveal the mystery of Jesus. What do you find most challenging in this passage? How can a community of Jesus followers reveal him to the world in a way that an individual cannot? Reflect on Paul’s description of “the mystery of Christ.” How does this profound truth impact your beliefs and your actions? Ask Jesus, “What do you want me to remember as I go through my day today?”

Wednesday | Read/Listen to Titus 1:1-16 | Worship to Available 

Leaders are required to lead the way. Reflect on how you currently serve in our church. Do you see it as serving God? How has God used your service and leadership already? What would it look like for you to align your service more with his purposes? Are there ways you can increase your commitment or approach your service with a more sacrificial heart?

Ask Jesus, “How do you want me to serve others today?”

Thursday | Read/Listen to 1 Corinthians 9:19-27 | Worship to Pursue/ All I Need Is You

Imitating Jesus is about pursuit, not perfection. Read through the passage a few times. Paul doesn’t live a disciplined life just to be known as a disciplined person. What is his purpose?  How are you building endurance as you follow Jesus? Who provides accountability in your spiritual journey? How can you strengthen these relationships to ensure you stay on course and run your race well? Ask Jesus, “Who can I have an honest conversation with about my pursuit of you?”

Friday | Listen to 1 Timothy | Worship to Build Your Church

Listen to the whole letter and follow along with your Bible. A faith-filled community imitates Jesus. How can understanding the big issues of one ancient local church shape how you live today? How can it impact the way we live as a church? As you look back over this week, is there something God keeps bringing your attention to as he works in your heart?
