- A return to a more consistent pattern of weekly worship attendance.
- A daily spiritual growth plan that includes reading of scripture/prayer. Many resources for this including "The Upper Room" devotional and "The Daily Office." Find something that works and use it each day.
- Regular participation in a class/small group that encourages Christian growth and accountability.
- Intentional hands on serving in a ministry area where we put our faith into practice.
Of course, there are more fundamentals, but if I had to focus on just a few, these would be at the top. As I get ready to reconvene my small group which includes study, prayer, sharing, and accountability, I think my brother had it right.
Happy New Year! May this be a new year of Christian growth and transformation.
