LIFe with God: October 3, 2013

Posted on October 3, 2013

Scripture

Revelation 22:1-6

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How do we know we can believe the description of eternity for the saved in this passage (verse 6)?

Application

Do I truly believe that my eternal destiny with God is secure, and that the testimony of His Word regarding it is “reliable and true”?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, I eagerly anticipate the day when, because I am in Christ, I shall see the river of the water of life – water as clear as crystal – pouring out from the throne of God and of the Lamb, flowing down the middle of the Eternal City’s main street. I can’t wait to see, on each side of the river, the tree of life producing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month of the year, and its leaves that are for the healing of the nations. How awesome to know that there will no longer be any curse, and Your throne, oh God, and the Lamb will be in the city. I look forward with great joy to being able to worship You face to face, having Your name on my forehead. I praise You that night will be no more, and we will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, because You, Lord God, will shine on us, and we will reign with You forever and ever. I believe the testimony Your angel gave to John: “These words are reliable and true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants what must happen soon.” 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 area pastors and their families:

  • Encouragement
  • Faithfulness in the Lord’s work
  • Finances
  • Marriage/family relationships
  • Work/life balance
  • Deep friendships and support from other Christian leaders

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
And this is love: that we walk according to His commands. This is the command as you have heard it from the beginning: you must walk in love. – 2 John 6 (HCSB)
