Week 1 Engagement Tasks (6/2)

Take some time this week to read about the city of Corinth. It will help you further understand the context of Paul’s letter.


Read 1 Corinthians chapter 1 in its entirety several times. Try reading it in another translation. Pay attention to words or phrases that stand out to you.


Where are the places in your life that are ‘complicated and messy’? What do you long to see happen? Take time to write this prayer to God.  


Take time to reflect on some specific ways God is inviting you to partner with Him as you move into your summer?

Week 2 Engagement Tasks (6/9)

Read 1 Corinthians chapter 2 slowly and thoughtfully.


In what areas of your life have you been tempted to rely on your own strengths and wisdom or some form of ‘self help?’


What does surrendering your own attempts at change look like? Where are the places you find resistance? What draws you toward surrender? Spend some time in prayer talking to God about this.


The message talked about the Holy Spirit’s role in our lives - to indwell,  search/reveal, and teach. How do you need the Holy Spirit’s empowerment in your life today? Where do you need His indwelling? How do you need the Spirit to search your heart and reveal His truth? Where are you in need of teaching? Take a moment and ask Him to do this for and with you.

Week 3 Engagement Tasks (6/16)

Take time to slowly read through 1 Corinthians 3. Now read 3:6-15 again. What words or phrases stand out to you?  

 

What legacy did you receive from your family — your father, mother, and grandparents? Who or what did it point you toward as most important? Take time to reflect and journal about it.

 

Take time to prayerfully reflect on the 3 points of the message: What is my role? What is my goal? How is my soul? What is God inviting you to address in these 3 areas? What is your first step? 

Week 4 Engagement Tasks (6/23)
