Planning your day and/or reflecting on it
Your goal in SYNC is more Star-gazing (watching Jesus, our "star" and hero) than it is navel-gazing ("How am I doing? How am I doing?") So as you use these questions about yourself, keep this one basic rule in mind, no exceptions:
When SYNCing, always ask, "What has he said or done?" before you ask, "How am I doing?"
That keeps you rooted in him, and that keeps you positively motivated to improve. Your feelings are lifted by how great the music is, not depressed by how badly you danced in the last day or two.
Plan your day
Seeing Yourself iN Christ (SYNC-ing) is a day at a time process. Start your day with one or more of these questions, the spiritual equivalent of a strong cup of coffee. Or skip these and just look at the meme, thinking about its implications for your day.
Since I know that Jesus' resurrection proves that his declaration of a new era of freedom was true, how can I show my gratitude? How can I live free and spread Christ's freedom?
OPTIONS AS TIME PERMITS
What does the coming day look like if I have Christ's resurrection on my mind?
(Everything looks different when you See Yourself iN Christ.)
What opportunities may I have today to be a freedom agent, helping others enjoy more freedom?
(Be alert for these chances. There are a lot of people around you who would love to find freedom.)
Am I as concerned about spreading freedom as I am about getting it for myself and my family or group?
(If I love my neighbor like I love myself, the two concerns will be as strong as each other.)
What SYNC exercises and/or other things will I build into my day so I live it with all the freedom God intended when he set Jesus free from the grave?
PRAYER TO END YOUR PLANNING TIME
Reflect on your day
Seeing Yourself iN Christ (SYNC-ing) is a day at a time process. End your day with one or more of these questions, or just look back at the meme and ask yourself how well it describes your day.
Where did I see, feel, or share the freedom that comes from knowing who I am and what I'm here for? Any regrets?
OPTIONS DEPENDING HOW TIRED YOU ARE
What did I do to make sure this whole day did not go by without thanking God even once for the resurrection and the new era of freedom?
(Thank God for whatever reminders worked)
Where did I experience the deep satisfaction of my identity in Christ today? How did that equip me to handle what my day included?
(Praise God for opening the path to freedom.)
Did I hear anyone mention the resurrection or our freedom in Christ today? Did I mention those things to anyone else?
(God gets overlooked at lot. You can help fix that. Speak up and give credit where credit is due.)
On a scale of 10, how alert was I for opportunities to bless someone today? Which opportunities did I seize? Can I recall any I missed or think of one for tomorrow?
(Repent of missed chances, and turn your attention back to God's intentions when he raised Jesus.)
Did I say or do anything today that damaged anyone's freedom?
(If so, you are out of SYNC. Repent and remember you belong to Christ, and he is on a mission. Let's SYNC with it, and be careful not to work against it.)
How much of God's freedom did I add to the world by living today the way I did?
(The more we add, the more we show that heaven's transforming power is coming to earth, just as Jesus said it is; Mk. 1.15. We really are what we prayed God would make us--a drum declaring freedom is here.)
This is a resurrection night, and we will rest, knowing we are free citizens of the kingdom of Jesus the Messiah.
