LIFe with God: November 30-December 1, 2013

Posted on November 30, 2013

Scripture

Luke 19:1-28

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why did Jesus say He had come? What is the meaning of the Parable of the Servants and Minas?

Application

Do I share Jesus’ desire to see the lost saved? Am I engaging in my Master’s business until He comes back?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Lord, May I have a heart like Jesus to see the lost saved. Keep me from looking down on others. Instead, help me to see them through Your eyes, as people You loved so much that You sent Christ to suffer and die so that they could be saved. I don’t want to be a wicked, lazy servant; help me to invest in Your kingdom and be about my Master’s business until He comes again! Amen!
