For this three-part series, we will explore the challenges of living a crucified life. In particular, we will examine the barriers of our relationship to money and possessions, and how they keep us from living completely in Christ.
Questions we will explore include:
What barriers are in your life that prevent you from denying yourself and taking up your cross daily (Lk 9:23)?
How can you move away from focusing on what the cost of living a 'Crucified Life' is, to focusing on what it saves you from (2 Cor 5:17)?
How do you relate to money, and how does it provide a leading indicator to your life in Christ?
What is your motivation when you give? Do you believe it is 'yours to give' or is it an 'offering to the Lord?"
