LIFe with God: January 1, 2014

Posted on January 1, 2014

Scripture

1 Corinthians 1

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why did Paul thank God for the Corinthian church? What did he urge them about? What sinful issue did he address?

Application

Do I thank God for His grace to me and my fellow believers? Do I seek unity? Am I careful to follow Christ and not divide over Christ’s instruments?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, Thank You for the amazing grace You give to all who receive Christ! May I always work toward unity with your people and never be a part of sinful division. 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:

  • Mike & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • Deborah Halkola
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus, Jack)
  • Bob & Peggy Hoover

Ministry:

  • Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Housing

CLF:

  • Pray that we would be a church that is dedicated to the breaking of bread, both in the sense of being devoted to observing the Lord’s Supper, and in meeting together for meals to fellowship, to deepen bonds, to heal offenses, and to end disputes.

Community: Pray for Unity in the Body of Christ…

  • that we would be united in our love for Jesus and each other
  • that we would encourage and support each other
  • that we would focus on Biblical principles in every arena of our lives
  • that we would have a spirit of cooperation in outreach

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for God’s glory.
– 1 Corinthians 10:31 (HCSB)
