Week 4: Slowing Down

Why were you put here on this earth? Were you made to simply exist? Or could it be that you were made to participate in God’s plan for redemption? Your life is valuable in God’s Kingdom and your life has a purpose for what He wants to do. We often miss the significance we can make because we fail to realize how God can use us. This lesson we talked about Slowing Down to Participate in God’s Mission.

As you watch this teaching lesson I want you to ask yourself this simple question: how can I align my life more with what God is doing around me?

Week 3: Slowing Down

Who in your life has made the biggest impact in your spiritual development? What about that person that helped you grow?

God constantly brings people into our lives and He desires for us to live in community with others. I believe that God wants us to have life-giving relationships to challenge us, to encourage us, and to keep us on the right path. The video above is a teaching on Slowing Down for Life Giving Relationships. I encourage you to spend some time and check out the video to see how God is speaking to you regarding the relationships in your life.

Week 2: Slowing Down

2110

In Genesis 2:2-3, God gives us a blueprint for a healthy rhythm of life. On the seventh day of creation, God enjoyed His completed work of creation and rested. In our fast paced society today, the concept of rest may be foreign to many of us. But as we see in Exodus 20:8-11, God commanded His people to take a “Sabbath.”

If you’re not familiar with what a Sabbath is, it is simply a set 24-hour period where you focus on stopping, resting, delighting, and contemplating. When we miss the time to rest, we miss so much of God. God speaks to us in our rest. God reveals who He is in our stillness. When we take a Sabbath, we position ourselves to hear from God.

In week of 2 of Slowing Down: Creating Room for God, we talked about Slowing Down to Honor the Sabbath. We had a great class and had very healthy discussions about what it means to honor the Sabbath. I encourage you to check out the video below (I was able to fix the camera angle and video quality from last week’s video). If you want just the audio, it can be found here: http://www.timothybkong.com/sermons-teachings/

I welcome any comments of feedback you may have on this topic of Sabbath.
