People often make plans for all sorts of reasons. But we rarely think of spiritual plans. Christians should always be striving to be better then they were before. To be more transformed into the character of Christ. By putting together a spiritual plan of action you can help yourself focus on that transformation.
SPIRITUAL PLAN OF ACTION
Approach Your Day In Prayer
Cloaking your day in prayer is essential for achieving spiritual growth. Instead of approaching your spiritual life as a whole it can be less overwhelming by approaching it instead in day-by-day increments and sometimes even hour-by-hour depending where you are in your walk and whats going on in your life.
“Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints…” – Ephesians 6:18
Have A Spiritual Goal
Decide where you want to be spiritually with Christ. Actually sit down and think of how intimate you want your relationship with Christ to be.
Then ask yourself “is anything I’m doing today helping me gain a better understanding as to who Christ is and what His plan is for my life”
Colossians 3:2 2-Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Make Sure That Your Walk With Christ Has Purpose.
This may sound strange even absurd but many people sit on their Christianity as if it’s some big secret. They don’t set out each day to do something to better the Kingdom of Christ.
I will even say that some of us think Christianity is only for Christians. Even though Christ said He came for those that don’t know Him.
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. -Mark 16:15-16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. -Romans 1:16
Staying focused on Christ not, circumstance lets us understand that the purpose of our faith is not to be content in just existing in our Christianity but that the purpose of our faith is to glorify and magnify Christ. To share the gift of Grace and Salvation that was given to us by Christ’s death with others.
