LIFe with God: October 15-16

Posted on October 15, 2011

Scripture

Galatians 3-4

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

For what was Abraham credited as righteous (3:6)? What makes us God’s children (3:25-26)? Why were we redeemed from the law (4:4-5)?

Application

Am I walking by faith or by sight? In what am I trusting to be righteous before God? How does being an adopted child of God influence my daily life?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Lord, Thank You that, although no one has ever been made righteous by observing the law, those who believe Your gospel are credited with the righteousness of Christ! But more than that, we have been adopted as Your sons and daughters! Help us to walk by faith, not by sight. In Jesus’ name I pray, 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)
