LIFe with God: May 27

Posted on May 27, 2011

Scripture

Mark 15:1-20

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What amazed Pilate about Jesus? Why did he turn Jesus over to be crucified even though he knew He was innocent?

Application

How do I respond when unjustly accused, and how does my response compare to that of Jesus? Am I more concerned about making the popular decision or doing what is right?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Jesus, As I read of Your trial and torture, I am humbled and broken. That You would go through such an ordeal without even stating Your case amazes me. That You would do it out of love for people like me amazes me even more. Help me to be more like You; to have Your compassion and humility. Keep me from a heart like Pilate’s, that is more concerned with pleasing the crowd than with doing what is right. Thank You for Your great love! In Your name I pray, 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.

  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)
