Sermon In Action - Suggested Activities:

  • DAILY AFFIRMATIONS:Say at least 10x per day, throughout the day as passionately as possible and as early as possible in the day… (Add your favorites)
  • I AM THE BELOVED OF GOD!
  • GOD LOVES ME!
  • THANK YOU GOD FOR LOVING ME!
  • SEEK GOD!
  • I AM THE SANCTUARY!
  • I AM THE ARK!
  • I AM THE ALTAR!

Write the affirmation(s) that resonate(s) the most ( or, print on computer – large font) and place it in several prominent places: your living space, your work space (if you are able), your car, bathroom mirror, near your bed… wherever it will be visible and can serve as a constant reminder of how you should be thinking, feeling, being and, of what you should be doing.

  • Prioritize God this week. Wake up 15 minutes earlier so you can spend quality time with God. Some additional suggestions: Go to a church service you don’t normally attend; – Prayer and Bible Study, a Sunday service at a different time,; commit to volunteer at our August 29 ReFresh Block Party and Book bag Giveaway; invite 5 people to church; if you are not a tither, consider giving a tithe this week.
  • Consider your baggage: Is there any person, place or thing you might be carrying around that has been weighing you down? Maybe it’s something you know you need to drop, have considered dropping, have tried to drop? This week, examine your trunk, and get rid of at least one thing.

May God bless you
