LIFe with God: December 18, 2013

Posted on December 18, 2013

Scripture

Genesis 12:1-3

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How does the promise God gave Abraham pertain to Christ? What do we learn from Matthew 1:1? From Galatians 3:13-18?

Application

Do I believe God keeps His promises? Do I believe He kept His promise to Abraham? Do I believe that Jesus Christ was, in fact, the fulfillment of His promise to Abraham? Do I trust Him to keep His promise that all who have received Christ have eternal life?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear God my Father, You are so good and kind and full of grace! Thank You for making a promise to Abraham that You would bless every nation in the world through him, and that You fulfilled that promise in the person of Jesus Christ. Help me to trust that You are faithful and always keep Your Word, and that because I have received Christ Jesus, I have Your promise of eternal life! I ask this in Jesus’ Name. 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:

  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus, Jack)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover
  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Darrell & Fralina Leatham

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:
