Posted on March 7, 2011

Scripture

Revelation 3:14-22

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What does this passage teach us regarding how Jesus feels about “moderate” Christianity?

Application

Am I an on-fire, radical disciple of Jesus, or am I moderate in my faith, love, and obedience to Him

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Heavenly Father, Keep me ever mindful of the solemn pronouncement of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the originator of God’s creation, the One who knows my deeds. I want to be hot with a godly passion and zeal for the Gospel! I don’t want to be lukewarm, among those Jesus is going to vomit out of His mouth! May I never say, “I am rich and have acquired great wealth, and need nothing,” but may I realize that I am wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked. I will take Christ’s advice and buy gold from Him refined by fire so I can become rich! I will buy from Him white clothing so I can be clothed and my shameful nakedness will not be exposed. I’ll buy eye salve to put on my eyes so I can see! I will buy these things with my faith in You and Your Word. All those Jesus loves, He rebukes and disciplines. So I earnestly repent! I hear Him standing at the door of my life and knocking! I hear His voice and I now open the door, inviting Him to come into my home and share a spiritual meal with me, and me with Him. I thank You that He grants all those who conquer through Him permission to sit with Him on His throne, just as He, too, conquered and sat down with You, Father, on Your throne. I hear what the Spirit says to the churches, and I choose to obey, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries:

  • Amy & Debbie Brueggemann
  • Chris Carlton
  • Travis & Hali Davidson
  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Brian & Eileen Davis

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for orphans and children in foster care…

  • that they would come to know the adoptive Father-heart of God
  • that they would be positively influenced by Christian workers
  • that God would bring Christian friends alongside them
  • that they would come to salvation
  • that they would be adopted by godly parents

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Pray for me also, that I may be given the message when I begin to speak — that I may confidently make known the mystery of the gospel – Ephesians 6:19 (NET)
