Learning How To Map Your Plan For Holiness
February 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
There is a process designed to help you grow in Holiness within forty-day periods. A strategy designed to help you grow closer to Christ through a deeper understanding of God’s will and His plan for your life. With the aid of this unique method of “Mind Mapping,” your path to holiness will be clear, and your journey to God’s plan for your life will become achievable over each of the ten habit-forming days.
The main theme is written in the center of a page to create a mind map, and ideas are branched out hierarchically. This way, you can see the main idea as well as all related concepts. The mind map helps you to keep track of your thoughts and ideas in an easy way. It is a more organized method of drawing a spider diagram (spider map), where all ideas are drawn from the center without any specific rules.
But, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in every aspect of your conduct, for it is written, “Be holy because I [am] holy.” Peter 1:15-16
A mind map is a free-flowing depiction of thoughts that branch out from a central concept. The visual organization of the diagram encourages idea brainstorming, effective note-taking, stronger retention, and an impactful presentation. Mind mapping ranges from simple to elaborate and may be either hand-drawn or computer-drawn. Depending on your purpose and time, the mind map can include artful, purposeful elements like pictures, drawings, curvy lines of varying thickness, and multiple colors.
Holiness is the clear distinction between one and many. To be holy is to be unique and set apart from what is common, imperfect, or wicked.
Being holy means conforming our behavior and character to Christ’s, resulting in our being recreated as new and different people. It means the old self is gone, and a new person has taken their place. Growing in holiness is intentionally immersing oneself in all things that would make the follower of Christ more and more Christ-like in all of their actions, words, and deeds.
There is no question that we are all called by God to be holy. There is also no question that we have a choice through the free will that God has given us. Do we want to grow in holiness? Or do we want to maintain the minimum needed to be a follower of Christ?
Through the waters of baptism, we received the indelible mark of God. Linking us for eternity to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is through that link that our holiness begins.
“The holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him.” ~ C. S. Lewis
