This week we move into the next part of our study together. The first 3 weeks we embraced what the gospel beliefs mean for us and now it’s time to put those beliefs into practice. The first practice we will study is how to receive from the Lord. We often believe we are self-sufficient and can go it alone, but when we do, we miss out on so much of what God wants to give us. This week we will process how to receive God into every part of our lives. We pray you can lean into opening up your heart humbly to receive His love, His joy, and His confidence. As we receive from Him, these characteristics of God will shine out of us to those we come in contact with each day. This week, take time to focus on how every part of your life can be shaped by Jesus if you open yourself up to receive from Him and lean on Him to guide your thoughts and actions.
