LIFe with God: August 23, 2013

Posted on August 23, 2013

Scripture

Mark 11:20-12:12

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What important promises does Jesus make in 11:22-25? What is the point of the Parable of the Tenants?

Application

Do I have faith that God hears my prayer and Jesus keeps His promises? Am I the kind of “tenant” who mistreats the Son of God and His messengers?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Jesus, I ask that You would increase my faith in God, so that, if necessary, I could move mountains. Help me not to doubt but to believe in my heart that when I ask anything in Your will, You will do it. Help me never to be like the tenants in Your parable, who rejected and mistreated every messenger of the Landlord including His own Son. Rather, give me a heart that receives, believes, and responds in obedience to the Father’s wishes. 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.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Keith Rast
  • Travis & Consuela Sauer (Mikayla, Christian, Donte, Cheyenne, Sera, Ella, Thomas)

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. – Isaiah 5:20 (HCSB)
