Although we’re taking a one-day break from the Old Testament, continue to focus on and think about Lent…and your sacrifices and offerings.
What will you sacrifice through this season? How are you becoming a better image bearer? Throughout our daily readings, take the time to reflect on the following:
1. What’s God’s Story in the passage and what are the implications for my life?
2. Praying for your 8-15 (those in your life who need Jesus)
3. What will you sacrifice in order to draw closer to Christ?
4. Pray for opportunities to invite your 8-15 to church or our big Easter culmination “Journey to the Cross” on Good Friday
Teach Sound Doctrine
2 But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. 2 Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. 3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, 4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. 6 Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. 7 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, 8 and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us. 9 Bondservants are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, 10 not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.
