For the next two Sundays, October 2 and 9, we will welcome Pastor Darryl Dash to Harvest to take us through the content of his book, 8 Habits for Growth. Darryl will make the case that the key to real life transformation as a believer is to dedicate ourselves to habits that reflect who we are in Christ. These messages will be filled with hands-on, practical application of biblical principles for being a disciple of Jesus. There will be a book table in the west lobby for those wanting to grab a copy of his book. It is also available on Kindle from Amazon.

Preparation is essential, even —especially —when it comes to our spiritual lives.

Some are all ungirt, and have their garments hanging loosely about them, so that they are unable to do anything effectively … I would say that I think the short way of putting it is this, “Pull yourself together.”
Charles Spurgeon

Four habits to prepare yourself for growth:

  1. Make time
    (Luke 10:41-42)
  2. Rest and refresh
    (Exodus 20:8)
  3. Care for your body
    (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
  4. Simplify and prioritize
    (Hebrews 12:1)
