January 1 - March 5, 2019
How many times last week did you consciously appreciate the beauty of creation and the fact that life is a gift? How much of God's life did you bring to those around you?
The more you get into the spirit of Life Season, the more you will like your answers to those questions. You will SYNC with the Creator and his intentions for his creation. You will resonate with his life, and even overflow with it.
Your goals during Life Season
Becoming more alive and more grateful to be alive. Bringing life to all those around you.
How do you do that?
Repeat the two following things often
1. The Life Declaration
This is a creation day, and we are alive.
As a person in SYNC with Jesus, you are authorized to declare this, so use your authority. Shape your world. Make your day.
2. The Life Prayer that SYNCs us with the Declaration
Make us a fountain of the woater of life. Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow.
Why do these tools work?
Because Christ is the source of natural and full life. In SYNC with him, we experience life and have life to share. Out of SYNC, our quality of life drops and eventually we die.
Key life verse in the New Testament
"I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of." (Jn. 10.10, The Message)
Key life verse in the Old Testament
"Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person." (Gen. 2.7 NLT)
Overview of the meaning of Life Season
Like all the other SYNC seasons, Life Season links you, your world, and your day today back to something huge God has done.
To "SYNC" with that God-thing means to align yourself with God's intentions when he did it. In this case the God-thing is the creation of human life, our world, and the whole universe.
Life Season celebrates that, even in winter, if it is winter where you are. (The wind chill here was -32 Fahrenheit or -35 Celsius the morning I wrote this!)
Celebrate the beauty of creation and the joys of life--music, food, family, friends. Watch a nature documentary. Look out your window. Pass out hugs.
Honor the gift of life and the Giver of life. Protect and enrich the lives of others, since God created them all.
Honor creation. We have far more reason to do that than people who do not believe in a Creator. We believe in a God who owns everything because he created it, so let's "out-green" the "Greens" who don't believe that. Green (plants) and blue (water) are the colors of Life Season.
Never be the person going against the Creator's intentions. He saw on the sixth day of creation that everything he created, including humans, was "very good" (Gen. 1.29).
Lots of things are far from good today, and every single bad thing is a sign that someone, some group, or something has slipped out of SYNC with the Creator.
Life Season is the time to re-SYNC. Remember who we are. Remember how we got here. And act like it--full of gratitude, joy, and respect.
