Am I a Contributor or a Consumer?
Am I a Contributor or a Consumer? One of the best ways we can show our faith to our world is by contributing to needs. In the early church, Tabitha was well known for serving others. Her death caused many to grieve, but her new life became a testimony of Jesus’ power. What do we want our lives to contribute to this world? My Next Step(s): - I will make a decision to contribute intentionally. - I will discover “my thing” that God has blessed me with, so I can give personally. - I will collaborate and be a part of a greater work than I can accomplish alone.

    Am I Open or Closed Off?
    It can be so easy to become click-ish. We have our friends, our cultural sensibilities, and our faith community. The early church struggled with this, too. But Peter and James reminded the early church that the Church should not put up barriers to entry, for it is by grace that we are counted as God’s family. My Next Step(s): - I will reflect upon the ways that I discriminate against others—subtly or overtly. - I will seek to be more open and welcoming to others - I will lead with Grace because God leads with Grace. - I will pray for, and do my part to help us all become “one in Christ.” Visit RedeemerbytheSea.org/Online-Worship for more information!
