Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why is Jesus the only one who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?

Application

Spend some time offering your praise and worship to Jesus, the one who is worthy.

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, I praise You that the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered; thus He can open the scroll and its seven seals. Jesus, You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals because You were killed, and at the cost of Your own blood You have purchased for God persons from every tribe, language, people, and nation. You have appointed them as a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth. Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and praise! I eagerly yearn for the Day when every creature — in heaven, on earth, under the earth, in the sea, and all that is in them — will sing: “To the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb be praise, honor, glory, and ruling power forever and ever!” And the four living creatures will say “Amen,” and the elders will throw themselves to the ground and worship. Hallelujah! 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 the poor & imprisoned

  • Salvation
  • That they will trust in God’s provision
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • That they will have hope
  • For godly mentors in the prison/jail system

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Therefore, since we have this ministry because we were shown mercy, we do not give up. Instead, we have renounced shameful secret things, not walking in deceit or distorting God’s message, but commending ourselves to every person’s conscience in God’s sight by an open display of the truth. – 2 Corinthians 4:1-2 (HCSB)
