LIFe with God: January 13

Posted on January 13, 2012

Scripture

Luke 12:35-59

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Jesus admonish His servants to do in the first portion of this passage? Why should we who have been given much be even more alert and ready? Am I willing to be divided from even loved ones because of my love for Christ?

Application

Am I alert and ready for Christ’s return? Do I understand that the more grace and knowledge He gives me, the more will be required of me? Am I willing to have others not want anything to do with me because I follow Christ?

Prayer

Dear Father, Help me to more fully see and recognize the glory of Christ, and be prepared for His return. May I live up to the light You have given me, and share it with others in the meantime. And if family and friends give me an ultimatum of choosing between them and Christ, may I choose Christ, every time! 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.

  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
  • Andrea Rodriguez (Willie, Yulieta)

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for our national leaders

  • God’s anointing on them and a desire in them to follow Him
  • For Jesus to once again be Lord and King over our nation
  • For the president and cabinet to seek after God
  • For judges to rule justly and righteously
  • For senators & representatives to pass godly legislation and block sinful bills
  • That our government would protect its citizens and punish evildoers

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Keep in mind Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descended from David, according to my gospel. – 2 Timothy 2:8 (HCSB)
