Scripture

1 Corinthians 15

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What are the primary issues regarding the Gospel? What is the result for those who believe?

Application

Do I sometimes make secondary and tertiary issues more important than Christ crucified, buried, risen, and returning? Do I truly believe He will come again and resurrect His people?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Father God, Help me to keep my focus in the right place, on the essentials of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. May I never set my own opinions or disputable matters on a level anywhere approaching the pure gospel. Keep me from doubt and help me to live each day with an ever-increasing faith in the return of Jesus and the resurrection of the saints. 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.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Travis & Consuela Sauer (Mikayla, Christian, Donte, Cheyenne, Sera, Ella, Thomas)

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Now it is God who strengthens us, with you, in Christ and has anointed us. He has also sealed us and given us the Spirit as a down payment in our hearts. – 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (HCSB)
