LIFe with God: January 27

Posted on January 27, 2012

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 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.

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