LIFe with God: December 27

Posted on December 27, 2010

Scripture

Luke 21

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Jesus teach about giving in this passage? How will we know when the return of Christ is near? What are we to do in the meantime?

Application

Do I give to God from my heart as He leads me? Am I prepared and watching for Christ’s return?

Prayer

Dear Father, Help me to remember that You desire Your people to be givers, whether out of their wealth or out of their poverty. Keep me from being wrapped up in the amount of the gift (whether my own or others’) and instead help me to focus on giving from a heart that is grateful to You, the Giver of all good things. May I be wise and vigilant as I observe the signs of the times, and keep me ever watchful and ready for the return of Christ! I ask this for Jesus’ sake and in His 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:

  • Amy & Debbie Brueggemann
  • Chris Carlton
  • Travis & Hali Davidson
  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Brian & Eileen Davis

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.

Community: Pray for Outreach Ministries

  • God’s creative provision
  • For sound financial management and strategies
  • Salvation and spiritual growth for those to whom they minister
  • God’s anointing and leading for projects and programs
  • Volunteers and workers

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:

Make every effort to present yourself before God as a proven worker who does not need to be ashamed, teaching the message of truth accurately. – 2 Timothy 2:15 (NET)
