It Starts with a Conversation

 

DESTINATIONS: Weapon or Tool

DESTINATIONS: Weapon or Tool

First, Seek Him...

Every day you have a choice about how you are going to use your body, so – how are you living your life? Are you a weapon or a tool? Use this discipleship conversation to inventory how you use every part of your life. Seek God about this!

...Then Speak Him

From our head to our toes, every part of our lives can either hurt or help. This conversation is applicable to every age group, no matter what their stage or season. We want to be people who are instruments, or tools, that God can use to bless others. Speak Him today!

Romans 6:3
“Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer…every part of yourself to God as an instrument of righteousness.”

Word

God, what are you saying to me through this Scripture?

The word “instrument” in our verse can mean weapon or tool. Your body can be like a weapon that hurts others or even yourself. Or, you can offer yourself to God and be like His tool of blessing in this world! ~ What is the difference between a weapon and a tool? What are some helpful tools or harmful weapons you can think of? How might your life be a “tool” God can use to bless others?

Why

God, why does this matter?

Our bodies are capable of so much good but also so much bad. Using any part of ourselves to hurt or harm ourselves or others fills the world with so much more sadness. Instead, God wants us to be an “instrument of righteousness” that He can use for His glory and our good. This matters because, not only are we blessed this way, but we will be a blessing to others and they may come to know God through our lives! ~ How can your mind be like a useful tool for Jesus to use? How might your mouth, hands, feet, fingers or legs be an instrument of righteousness? Why does this matter? Do you want to be a blessing?

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

Paul said that the world is God’s house and that our lives can be either common or special in it. Paul encouraged Timothy to live in such a way that he would be an “instrument for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work” (2 Timothy 2:20-21). Our lives can be “for special purposes” in the Master’s hands when we “Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (v. 22). ~ Do you want God to use your life in special ways? How does verse 22 tell us to “pursue righteousness”?

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

Everyday we get to choose where we go with our feet, what we say with our tongues, what we type with our fingers, what we do with our hands, and so much more. This week is a great time for us to take inventory of how we use every part of our bodies. ~ Let’s ask forgiveness for the areas in which we’ve been more like a weapon, and let’s dedicate ourselves to be like tools God can use for His glory and our good!

Romans 6:3
“Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer…every part of yourself to God as an instrument of righteousness.”
