Personal Spiritual Exercises
Just like physical exercises help strengthen and stretch our bodies for healthy living, these spiritual exercises are meant to move us spiritually in ways that may be new so we might experience inner growth. Since God longs for us to experience Him with our whole selves—mind, body, spirit—we invite you along each week to strengthen your souls with suggestions and prompts. Next week in Life Group, take a few moments to share how the Lord may have used this exercise in your life.
Telling Yourself the Truth: Each day remind yourself of what is true of you as a follower of Jesus.
I am one in whom Christ dwells and delights. (Col. 1:27)
I live in the strong kingdom of God that is unshakeable. (Col. 1:13-14)
Because Jesus is risen and ascended, He is able to guide/lead my life today. (Col. 1:15-20)
I have died with Jesus to the ways of this world. (Col. 2:20; 3:5, 8-9).
I will keep seeking the kingdom of God and set my mind on heavenly things. (Col. 3:1-3)
The kingdom is not in trouble, and neither am I. (Col. 1:15-23; 3:4, 9-11).
