We are currently in week two of a sermon series called The Great Omission. We are looking at how often in our relationship with Jesus some steps, practices and rhythms are missing. It's not that we aren't serious about following Jesus, but simply that we are missing out on the fullness of joy and purpose that He gives because we are missing one or a few crucial steps of obedience. You can catch up with the messages from the series if you've missed one.
This is the third post in a series of blog posts looking at six different areas of our lives. The purpose of these posts are to ask questions that allow you to examine your life rhythms and allow the Holy Spirit to guide and convict you to where the Great Omission might be visible. The outcome that I hope you experience is greater clarity on where you need to change and repent and include Jesus into your life in a greater way. It would probably work best if you pray and journal through these questions each week.
This post is adapted from an article in Neue Quarterly by pastor and author Josh Loveless called When Life Change Is Forgotten. Here are the second set of questions to pray through as you consider how The Great Omission might be experienced in your life.
Inviting Jesus Into My Financial Life
- Am I tithing?
- How do I spend the other 90%?
- Am I paying down debt?
- Do I need to create or recreate a budget?
- Am I on time with my bills?
- Am I using my financial resources to support everyday needs of others?
