What's it all about?

“…everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.”

Philippians 3:8

The goal of our lives is to know Jesus, and become like Him. The more like Jesus we become, the more healed, whole and free we will be. The more like Jesus we become, the more His mission will become our passion.

One of the key ways we do this at Zeo Church is to embrace a spiritual practice that we call ‘The Habit and the Huddle’.

Remember, we’re all work-in-progress – we’re in a relationship with God, not under religion. So, let’s ‘have a go’ together and see what Jesus will do. Try the “Habit and the Huddle’ today and get ready for a faith revolution!

Habit

When we were growing up, we were ‘trained’ by our parents to get into the habit of washing our face and brushing our teeth every day. It didn’t come naturally at first, but now we wouldn’t think of starting our day without doing those things.

We want to build that same good habit when it comes to drawing close to Jesus each day, and throughout the day.

With this in mind, we’re training ourselves to build a healthy habit every day – a spiritual practice of drawing close to God.

First up...

Start the day with God

Start with 2 minutes Bible reading, 2 minutes reflection, 2 minutes prayer – and look to grow from there.

Then...

Turn your thoughts to God

Throughout the day, allow your thoughts (encouragements and worries) to become moments to pray.

Finally...

Close the day with God

Before your head hits the pillow, take a moment to be thankful, release and forgive anyone who has hurt you that day, and give your worries to God (who will keep working on your behalf as you sleep).

Huddle

We’re not supposed to follow Jesus by ourselves! We get to do this with friends.

So once a month, talk to 2-3 friends and encourage each other by reflecting on these two questions:

  • What is Jesus saying to me?
  • What am I doing about it?

These friends will support and encourage you, pray for you, and keep you accountable for embracing the transformation that Jesus wants to bring – and, of course, you’ll do the same for them.

Bible in a year

Every year at Zeo Church, a number of us commit to read the whole of the Bible through in a year. This year we’re using Max Lucado’s brilliant devotional Bible where each day you’ll have a passage from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs – plus a devotional thought from Max himself.

There are various options for you, in terms of how you approach the year ahead….

  1. Read the whole of each day (Old Testament, New Testament, Psalm and Proverb passages)
  2. Read the New Testament section only.
  3. Read the Psalm and Proverb only.

As you read, you’ll no doubt have questions. Our Founding Pastor, Tony Summerfield, will be doing a monthly teaching session.
