I’m on my way to Waldosboro ME today to help my brother-in-law out as he recuperates from surgery. The spiritual journey becomes physical. I wonder what I will learn while I am away. God has something in mind because His Spirit is calling me deeper into the fast.
Here are today’s questions regarding spiritual health. They deal with our heart for service.
On a scale of 1 to 5 (1 meaning I am just beginning and 5 meaning I am well-developed in this area)…
Does my way of life expresses my unique God-given design?
How open am I to be used by God for ministry that complements my spiritual giftings, my heart, my abilities, my personality and my experiences in life? Am I even praying for such a ministry to present itself?
Am I serving in regular ministry?
How am I assuming responsibility for or facilitating a group discussion?
Am I discovering new ways to develop myself for ministry to the body?
How can I better serve God and others?
These are probing questions. I think for most of us the question is not are we doing something for the church (most of us are blogging as a ministry to the body of Christ and a mission to the world) but is there anything that needs to change for us to fully enter into that place of ministry that fits us like a glove. In my personal coaching sessions my coach is constantly asking questions that help me to see what I am doing that is facilitating ministry and what I am doing that is nothing more than a distraction.
One final question to ponder today. What can you change with God’s help to make you a better servant to God’s people?
