We've developed measures to provide our church with a clear and understandable tool to individually assess our own spiritual development and growth as a disciple of Jesus. We want to pray through each of the Measures questions in order to do a spiritual checkup. This will also help us as a church family internalize these Measures so that they become a natural part of the language we use in conversation with one another. In other words, it won't feel strange to ask someone, "Who are your 2 a.m. friends?" or "Are you close to someone far from God?"
