This past weekend at Eastbrook, we continues ourfour-week preaching series entitled “Reset.” In this series, we are exploring four aspects of our life together as Christ’s church based on the words of Hebrews 10:24-25. This week we focused on the phrase: “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” There is much more going on at Eastbrook during this four weeks than a preaching series, so let me encourage you to find out more here.
“Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds…” (Hebrews 10:24)
A Reset on Our Concept of the Church
The church as an event or a consumer activity
Last week: the church as a family who loves one another
This week the church as a body who serves one another
A Reset on How the Church Serves as a Body (Romans 12:3-8)
Like a body, the church is made by God and gifted by God
Like a body, the church has different parts that belong to one another
Like a body, the church has differing abilities in differing parts
Like a body, the church requires every part to actively use its unique gifts
This week dig deeper in one or more of the following ways:
- Memorize some portion or all of either Hebrews 10:24-25 or Romans 12:3-8.
- What do you think are your spiritual gifts or talents given by God? Pray about that and then make a list of those you are aware. Perhaps you could discuss that with someone close to you so you both can grow in your faith and service.
- Set aside space and time this week to meditate on Romans 12:3-8. Let the Lord search through your heart and mind about your love for Him and for others. Ask the Lord to direct you in service within the church for His glory.
