Just Ask (week 2) – Day 2

There are hundreds of potential “reasons” why not to go to a life group, though they won’t outweigh the value of being in one!  But simply showing up in and of itself may not change our lives.  It will, however, expose us to the truth of God’s Word and how it applies to each of us.  When we make a conscious decision to shift out of neutral, apply God’s Word, dive in to a life group, and/or begin serving in some capacity, we engage ourselves in an inevitable spiritual growth process.  God begins changing us through our acts of obedience.  If we commit to perseverance – meeting regularly and sharing authentically, God changes us in the process.  And He may use our contributions to change others.  We have an opportunity in serving and life groups not only to represent God but to encounter Him.  We should just ask ourselves if we are in community.  If the answer is “no,” then be willing to ask a friend, “Are you in a life group?  Can I come?”   If you answered “yes” to being in a life group, ask God to point you to a friend and be willing to say, “Come with me, and let’s do this together.”
