Scripture

Mark 3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did Jesus respond to those who accused Him of using Satan’s power to cast out demons? Who are His family members?

Application

Do I work with God or against Him? Am I in Jesus’ family?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord God, Help me to always seek to do good and not evil, regardless of the day, time, or location. Help me never to work against You or Your people, and never to make the terrible error of attributing the work of Your Spirit to anyone but Him. Work in me to do Your will, Lord. I ask this in the Name of the Lord 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:

  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Tris & Chris Miller
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael & Jenn Morgan

Ministry:

  • Genesis World Mission

CLF:

  • That we will devote ourselves to prayer, individually, in small groups, and as a church.

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:
Don’t work for the food that perishes but for the food that lasts for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal of approval on Him. – John 6:37 (HCSB)
