No matter what your week ahead looks like, you have the choice to live it in SYNC with Christ or out of SYNC. The default is to keep slipping out of SYNC, which makes for a rough week. Any of the following questions will help you stay in SYNC.
How is Christ's example of sacrificial suffering changing me a week at a time? How might it make me bolder this week?
(The clearer your get this, the more motivated you are to SYNC with him.)
If I do my part this week in God’s mission to restore and bless the world, what risks must I be ready to accept?
(Note: these risks don’t come up if we are not looking at our next week in terms of God’s mission. We don’t act and we don’t get reactions.)
What opportunities may I have to share Christ's courage and "en-couragement" as others carry their crosses, whether nearby or on the other side of the world?
(Be alert for these. In Christ, you are a walking "en-couragement". Much of the world's pain is due to a serious shortage of courage.)
Bottom line: What SYNC exercises and/or other things will I build into my week so I am ready for any risk I may have to take this week because I live in SYNC with Christ?
