LIFe with God: November 4, 2013

Posted on November 4, 2013

Scripture

Luke 3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did John instruct the people to do (verse 8)? Why is the event following Christ’s baptism so significant (verse 22)?

Application

Do I produce fruit consistent with repentance? Do I believe in the Triune God as demonstrated in verse 22?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Help me to live a life that displays the repentance I have claimed to make to turn from my sin and to turn to Christ. Thank You for verifying the deity of Christ at His baptism by having Your Spirit descend on Him as Your voice proclaimed Him as Your Son from heaven. You alone are one God in three persons, now and forevermore! 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:

  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins (Gianna)
  • Patti Doty
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
But based on His promise, we wait for the new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness will dwell. Therefore, dear friends, while you wait for these things, make every effort to be found at peace with Him without spot or blemish. – 2 Peter 3:13-14 (HCSB)
