Here are some steps to consider:

  • Stop waffling on Jesus – Figure out who Jesus is. Examine what you believe about Him. Either follow Him or disown Him; being lukewarm is folly.
  • Settle Your Identity – Decide where you get your identity; in yourself, your family, your achievements or in Jesus.
  • Come back/attend church regularly or watch online – next week and January 19 to finish this series with Pastor Doug and Harvey.
  • Develop 1% Habits: Courageously make tiny changes … that will yield remarkable results.

 

  • Share your next step with your group.
  • Check in next week. Commit to holding each other accountable.
