Observation

What is the overriding theme regarding relationships in this passage?

Application

Do I act in a loving and serving manner toward the other people in my life, even when they don’t act that way toward me?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father in Heaven, I ask that You would help me to have an attitude that subjects my will and desires to the needs of others. Help me to remember that whatever I do and however I act toward Your people is the same as if I were doing that to You. Help me to love others as Christ loves the church. 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:

  • Scott & Kristi Guinn
  • Mike & Jamie Haberkorn (Hannah, Sean)
  • Patrick Hall
  • David & MaryBeth Hollander (Cole, Marcus)
  • 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 Boise & Garden City…

  • That city leaders would submit to God
