Fall Series at Grace Place

clay

Where are you right now in your spiritual journey? Are you drifting backward or shifting forward? It doesn’t take any effort, only neglect, to drift. But to shift forward takes intentionality! At Grace Place we are determined to be a community of Christ-followers who are experiencing spiritual transformation—changed people changing the world.

Join the journey this fall as we explore how SHIFT happens. This season is going to be all about developing a growing, vibrant, thriving, meaningful, life-changing relationship with Jesus…BEING TRUE DISCIPLES.

Take just a moment and honestly consider the health of your soul. See if there are any words on these lists that describe where you are right now. Which list is more true of you?

• Some symptoms of soul neglect include self absorption, shame, apathy, toxic anger, physical fatigue, isolation, stronger temptation to sin, drivenness, feelings of desperation, panic, insecurity, callousness, a judgmental attitude, cynicism and lack of desire for God.

• Some symptoms of soul health would be love, joy, compassion, giving and receiving grace, generosity of spirit, peace, ability to trust, forgiveness, discernment, humility, creativity, vision, energy, balance and focus.

If you are a follower of Jesus, than God is doing a work of transformation in you. He promises to finish it, telling you to be “confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippian 1:6).

But unlike your initial salvation, which is based solely on the already completed work of Jesus, your spiritual transformation is dependent on you partnering with God. You must “continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12). That doesn’t say to work for your salvation. You could never accomplish that (Ephesians 2:8). It says “work out.” In other words, cooperate with what God is doing.

During this series we are reflecting on SOUL CARE, what types of spiritual practices will help us stay connected to Jesus and enable us to live a God-honoring, high-impact, purpose-driven, life-changing, fruit-bearing life as we seek to become changed people changing the world.
