Personal Spiritual Exercises
Each week we’re suggesting a couple of spiritual exercises. These are not required, but they may help us to actually live our faith and grow as followers of Jesus. Feel free to practice one or both of them. If a certain exercise is very helpful for you, maybe you can figure out a way to incorporate it into your daily life. Next week in your Life Group, take a few moments to share how either of these exercises may have changed your outlook on your daily life.
(1) Take some time every day this week to pray for Christians in other parts of the world who face serious persecution (including death) for proclaiming the gospel and making disciples.
(2) Make an effort this week to talk to one person about Jesus. Beforehand, ask the Holy Spirit (a) to guide you, (b) to calm any fears you might have and give you courage, and (c) to prepare the heart of the person you talk to.
