Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: Whole Life Sermon Title: More Like Jesus Every Day
Delivered On: March 31, 2019
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)
Ask Jesus to give you a fresh vision of who He is and who he wants you to become. Ask for power to open God’s Word every day and really listen to what the Father wants to speak to you through the Bible.
Pick one: At the end of the message on Sunday, pastor Kevin gave a whole list of possible actions we can take as we seek to become more like Jesus (you can find these in the message notes on the Shoreline website). Pick one of these challenges and really go after it for two-weeks straight. Once this is part of your life, take another challenge.

Read: John 13:1-16. What is one way you serve Jesus and others and how does this honor our Savior? How can you take one step deeper into a lifestyle of humble service?
