Day 17 - Life

    12.13.17 | Advent by Joe Dascenzo

    Warm-Up
    Confession time. Think about the last 24 hours and the times you did not use words of life when speaking to others. Write down those moments and confess that you fell short to God. Make a choice to turn away from that old way of living because it only brings hurt.

    Round 1
    Write down the make, model, year and mileage of your vehicle. How would you feel if your car was made new every morning and had zero miles on it? The new covenant Jesus brought doesn’t wear out like your vehicle. It’s newness doesn’t fade. It brings life and so do you. Live like it today.

    Round 2
    Read Jeremiah 31:31 and Luke 22:20 and 2 Corinthians 3:6-8.

    Round 3
    Pray: “Lord, I mess up my words more than I want to confess. I don’t bring life as often as I would like. The truth is, You brought a new way of living when you came to earth. You showed us how to live well and bring life. My life can shine brighter than Moses did after he came down off the mountain of God. I want that life. I accept the sacrifice you made on the cross for me—which made a more glorious and glowing life possible for me!“

    Burnout
    Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with words of life that bring light to those you speak to. Intentionally encourage others with your words at least 3 times today. Write these moments in your journal at the end of the day.
