Two years ago, God started a small group of people on a journey that would eventually be called South Lakes Church. From the beginning, South Lakes Church was founded on the premise that the church existed to make disciples who were RADICALLY DEVOTED to God, RELENTLESSLY COMMITTED to true community, and REMARKABLY PASSIONATE for the lost.
As God has grown His church over these past two years, it had become apparent that the church needed a clear and simple understanding as to how a disciple of Christ could become RADICALLY DEVOTED, RELENTLESSLY COMMITTED, and REMARKABLY PASSIONATE. It was from this need of understanding that a new, clear approach to discipleship was birthed.
It has been said that the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Last Sunday night, I introduced the church to the first step…
The 5% life
Allow me to explain this simple approach to becoming RADICALLY DEVOTED, RELENTLESSLY COMMITTED, and REMARKABLY PASSIONATE.
It begins with giving 1% of your day, approximately 15 minutes to BIBLE TIME, daily.
From there, we ask that 1% of your week, approximately an hour and a half be spent in WORSHIP TIME, weekly.
Next, 1% of your month, approximately seven hours is devoted to GROUP TIME, consistently.
And, last but not least, 2% of your year, approximately 7 days is spent in SERVE TIME annually.
As I told the church on Sunday night, we are convinced that if you embrace the 5% life as a starting point, the other 95% of your life will be changed forever as you become more RADICALLY DEVOTED to God, RELENTLESSLY COMMITTED to true community, and REMARKABALY PASSIONATE for the lost.
