Living Each Day as a Steward
The theme for the second week of our stewardship
program Living Each Day as a Steward is “The Steward’s
Purpose.” Through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we are
transformed into new people who seek to fulfill God’s
purpose for our lives. As Paul stated, “…if anyone is in
Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away;
behold, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17). As God
opens our eyes and hearts through the reading and studying
of His Word, we discover His purpose for us.
Understanding our purpose as God’s stewards, we commit all that we are and
have to His service.
Join us today in our Bible study as we discuss “The Steward’s Purpose.”
