LIFe with God: January 28-29

Posted on January 28, 2012

Scripture

Luke 22:1-34

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did the bread and the cup at the Last supper symbolize? What was the dispute among the disciples? How did Jesus respond?

Application

Am I careful to remember the sacrifice Christ made for me? Do I try to be greater than others, or do I make an effort to serve them?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, May I never make personal gain more important than following Christ, as Judas did. Help me to always remember that Christ allowed His body to be broken and His blood to be shed for me. Keep me from conceit and disputes over who is greater at what. Instead, show me how to be a true servant of christ and of my fellow believers. In the name of Christ Jesus 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)
