Read. Study. Meditate. Memorize. These practices help us understand the Bible, find direction, and apply the truth of the Bible to our lives. Additionally, learning the *one story* of the Bible helps us interpret it accurately, and studying it *in community* keeps us accountable.
God wants *total* surrender. What does that look like? I give up what I want to meet the needs of others. I give away things I possess when I am so led by God. I serve God through my daily work. I can only do this by remembering I am in a *no-lose situation.*
Fellowship with other believers keeps our relationship with God strong, and our relationships with others strong. Develop close relationships with Christians who know you and support you. Allow other Christians to hold you accountable for your actions. Pray for and support other Christians.
Know and celebrate the gifts of the people God has placed around you. Learn what gifts you have, and use them in ministry to accomplish God's purposes. Acknowledge and give God the credit for your gifts.
