Five Habits Overview
In this series overview, Executive Pastor Ben Lovvorn introduces you to the Five Habits of a Healthy Christian. The Five Habits aren’t intended to be groundbreaking or new; they’re the time-tested, biblical ways to grow closer to the Lord. We also discuss why God wants us to grow spiritually and whether spiritual disciplines lead to hypocrisy.
Habit 1 | Weekly Worship
The first spiritual habit of a healthy Christian is weekly worship in the local church. Ben Lovvorn explains the biblical content and goals of the weekly worship gathering. Gathering as the church has its challenges, but community with other believers as we worship the Lord together is well worth it!
Habit 2 | Daily Prayer
The second habit of a healthy Christian is daily prayer. Ben Lovvorn walks through examples of prayer in Scripture and explains both how and why the Bible says we should pray. The lesson offers some simple ways to keep our prayers focused and fruitful, so we can grow closer to God.
Habit 3 | Daily Scripture Reading
The third habit of a healthy Christian is daily Scripture reading. Ben Lovvorn talks us through how to respond to God’s Word and the goals we should have when we read it. This lesson will help you make Scripture part of your daily routine so that it bears fruit in your life.
Habit 4 | Regular Giving
The fourth habit of a healthy Christian is regular giving. Ben Lovvorn explains the biblical distinction between being an “owner” and being a “steward” of God’s resources. He then explains why we should be generous, providing examples large and small of people who have surrendered themselves and everything they have to the Lord.
Habit 5 | Sharing Your Faith
The fifth habit of a healthy Christian is sharing your faith. Ben Lovvorn explains why personal evangelism is so important that God would call each and every Christian to do it. This lesson will help you prepare your heart and mind to share Christ with others!
