Posted on December 28, 2011

Scripture

Luke 4

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did Jesus keep from giving in to temptation (verses 1, 4, 8, 12)? For what purpose was Jesus sent to earth (verse 43)?

Application

How do I respond to temptation? For what purpose am I living?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, When I face temptation, I ask that You will remind me to follow Your Spirit’s leading, and that You will bring to my mind Your word to help me resist. Of course, I realize this means that I must study Your Word so that I might not sin against You. I also ask that You will remind me and enable me to live for Your purposes, just as Jesus did. In Jesus’ name, 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:

  • Mike & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:

  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.

Community: Pray for Media Industries (TV/Movies, Radio/Music, Print/Internet)

  • Godly themes/influences
  • Christian workers at all levels sensitive to God’s leading
  • Salvation for influential media leaders
  • Courage to share God’s message
  • Financial rewards for wholesome media

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people He favors! – Luke 2:14 (HCSB)
