Read Proverbs 29:18

1) How dangerous is it to participate in something if you do not know what you are doing?

G= Gospel-Centered Daily Living

Read Colossians 1:21-23

1) Once we chose to live our lives very differently. In Christ things have changed and we are called to be different. How has the Gospel of what Jesus has done for you changed the way you daily live you life?

WEDNESDAY

R= Reaching Out to Others

Read Matthew 28:19-20

1) How are you currently obeying the command to go into the world and make disciples?
