PART SIX OF “I AM A CHURCH MEMBER SERIES”
A STORY OF INTENTIONAL GRATITUDE: Luke 17:11-19
KEYSTONE HABIT: A PATTERN that has the power to start a chain reaction, changing other habits as it moves through an organization or life of an individual.
MAKING GRATITUDE A KEYSTONE HABIT: THE PSALMS
1. Reflect on God’s PAST activity. (Psalm 107, 136)
2. Be thankful MORNING and EVENING (Psalm 92:1)
3. Remember that God is our SOURCE. (Psalm 104)
4. Move from “I have to” to “I get to” as a church member.
THE SIXTH PLEDGE:
I am a church member. This membership is a gift. When I received the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, I became a part of the body of Christ. I soon thereafter identified with a local body and was baptized. And now I am humbled and honored to serve and to love others in our church. I pray that I will never take my membership for granted, but see it as a gift and an opportunity to serve others and to be a part of something so much greater than any one person or member.
