Are you satisfied with where your spiritual life is at? Why or why not? Are you spiritual growing, stagnant or declining (2 Peter 1:5-11)? Is your faith lacking something (1 Thess. 3:10)? If you are dissatisfied with where your spirituality is currently at, what can this congregation do to help bolster your faith?
Are you satisfied with the spirituality and vitality of the Columbine congregation? Why or why not? If you are not satisfied with the current state of the congregation, what can you do to help promote the spirituality of the Columbine congregation?
What activities are you willing to be involved in? What activities does this congregation need to stop doing (Sunday and Wednesday Bible classes and Sunday assemblies are not under consideration for this question)? Why are you not more involved in the current congregational activities? At the Men’s Breakfast, I suggested a men’s Bible study during breakfast or at a coffee shop. It looked there was some interest in this.
What is the identity of the Columbine congregation? What do we want the congregational identity to be?
Someone has said that there are three types of people. Those who do not know what is happening. Those who watch what is happening. Those who make things happen. Based on your participation in congregational activities this past year (not your intentions, thoughts, etc.) which group describes you?
There is work to be done, walls to be built (we have a big project to tackle). Kingdom building is hard work. It can be discouraging. There are many enemies and conspirators. The task seems overwhelming. There are parallels to the time of Nehemiah. Let us be like the people in the book of Nehemiah who rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem in fifty-two days (Neh. 6:15-16). They were about able to accomplish the task because of the help of God (Neh. 2:18, 20; 4:15-16) and they committed to the work (Neh. 2:17-18; 4:6).
desire to see Columbine “rebuilt.” Please share your answers to the above questions concerning this congregation with me (text, email, a note, a phone call, etc.). Please do not be the person in the stands who just watches what is going on. Everyone is needed. Your input is needed. “And they said, “Let us rise up and build.” So they strengthened their hands for the good work” (Neh. 2:18).
