L.I.T. Played a Significant Role in My Spiritual Life-Pastor Joel Hayworth

Two things specifically that are a part of L.I.T. that have played significant roles in my spiritual formation are forming spiritual disciplines and using spiritual gifts in the local church. As a young believer, I was given a weekly Scripture verse to memorize and a daily passage to read.
These things might seem minor or even insignificant to some people, but to a young Christian, this was precisely what I needed to grow in my faith and knowledge of God's Word! A second thing that L.I.T. encouraged and has shaped me is using my spiritual gifts in the local church. Because of L.I.T., though, I learned that God had given me a gift, and I have a responsibility to use that gift to further the kingdom of God.
