Posted on November 28, 2011

Scripture

Ephesians 4

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why should believers live in unity (4-7)? What should be our unified goal (15-16)? How is that evidenced in our lives (25-32)?

Application

Do I live in unity with my fellow Christians? Am I growing together with them into Christ? Does it show in the way I live my life?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Make me a person who walks worthy of the calling I’ve received from You. May I have a heart that is humble, gentle, patient, accepting and loving, and help me to keep the unity of the Spirit that binds us together in peace. For there is one body, one Spirit, one hope of salvation, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God–You, who are above all and through all and in all. Thank You for the gift of grace in Christ that enables Your people to carry out the work of the ministry. Help me to use the gifts You’ve given me in cooperation with my brothers and sisters in Christ to carry out Your will, to build up the Body of Christ into maturity. Help me to speak the truth in love, remembering that Christ is the Head from whom I and all Christians are fitted together and receive life and growth. So may I no longer walk in sin, but rather put off that former way of life with its wicked and deceitful desires. Renew my mind by Your word, that I may walk in Your light and Your life. Give me a heart that is kind and compassionate and that forgives others just as You have forgiven me in Christ. I pray this 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 Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew)
  • 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 Media Industries (TV/Movies, Radio/Music, Print/Internet)

  • Godly themes/influences
  • Christian workers at all levels sensitive to God’s leading
  • Salvation for influential media leaders
  • Courage to share God’s message
  • Financial rewards for wholesome media

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments and untraceable His ways! – Romans 11:33 (HCSB)
