Welcome to week three of our ‘Life in Season’ study series!
1. When we don’t tend to all areas of our faith, we leave ourselves wide open for gaps to develop. It’s in the gaps where we find we are the most vulnerable to sin and temptation. Where in your faith do you think you have gaps that you aren’t ‘minding’?
2. Read through this passage from 2 Peter 1:5-8. “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
3. Adding to our faith the qualities listed above is an ongoing process and one about which we have to be intentional. Which of those qualities do you find to be the most difficult for you? Take some time this week to pray and humbly ask God to reveal to you the gaps that He sees. Recognize it as an opportunity to strengthen your relationship with Him as you seek His forgiveness and accept the help He longs to give you.
If you feel comfortable, please share your thoughts here so we can talk about this together.
And thank you so much for meeting me here at the fence today,
