LIFe with God: January 14-15

Posted on January 14, 2012

Scripture

Luke 13

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did Jesus respond to the synagogue leader who was upset He had healed on the Sabbath? What did He teach about God’s kingdom?

Application

Am I more concerned with the appearance of righteousness or with sharing the love and grace of God? Am I allowing God’s Word to work through me and affect my whole being like yeast in dough?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, Help me never to chastise someone for doing good in Your name! May I always be more concerned with sharing the love of Christ than with following rules. I ask that You would work through me to help grow Your kingdom in my life and in the lives of those You bring in contact with me. In the name of Christ Jesus 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)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
