Happy Monday, Church Family & Friends!
We hope you enjoyed listening to Pastor Joshua’s message during yesterday’s SGPC Sunday Worship Online! “What is involved in having real faith in a real God in our real life?” We encourage you to continue to engage with God’s Word and the 4 instructions we went over in the message with another brother or sister in Christ sometime this week! Don’t forget to pick a verse to memorize (down below)!
Two application questions I personally gleaned from the sermon that I thought may be helpful as you continue to process and mull over the sermon this week:
- Am I seeking God’s Word each day in pursuit of becoming transformed into Christ-likeness? (In reference to Colossians 3:9-10) Why or why not?
- Pastor Joshua reminded us that being Christian is a lifestyle, not a statement. Does my current lifestyle demonstrate daily being emptied of myself (my sin) in order to be sanctified through His Word & ready to receive His blessings & power? In what ways? And if not, what are some practical ways that I change this?
If you haven’t already, take a look at Pastor Joshua’s Sermon notes from Sunday & reflect on them. Download them below:
Consider the last question in relation to 1 Corinthians 1:18: “If you claim to be saved in the past, are you being saved today? Does your faith work today?”
Pick a verse to commit to memory this week & tell a friend to help keep you accountable!

Create an atmosphere to encounter God
During this historical time, we’ve been collecting songs along the way. You can find the playlists on SGPC’s Spotify profile (requires a free Spotify account). Listen to old favorites and discover new songs of the season! Spring off into some of the suggestions generated by Spotify or search for your own go-to songs. These also work well as background music for studying scripture (or anything else).
