LIFe with God: November 16-17, 2013

Posted on November 16, 2013

Scripture

Luke 10:25-42

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What was the point of the Parable of the Good Samaritan? What was Jesus’ point in his answer to Martha?

Application

Am I loving God with all my heart, soul, strength, and mind? Am I loving my neighbor as myself? Am I focusing on the thing that is most important?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Lord, Teach me to love You with everything I am, and to love my neighbor as myself–even strangers that you bring across my path, and even those that I don’t particularly like. I confess that I often allow the busyness of life get in the way of what’s most important: sitting at Your feet and listening to You. Keep me from becoming worried and upset about all those other things and choose the one thing that is necessary. 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)
