LIFe with God: April 6-7, 2013

Posted on April 6, 2013

Scripture

Matthew 24

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What do we learn from this passage regarding those who predict Christ’s return on a specific date? What did Jesus say we are to do to prepare for Him?

Application

Do I fall for teachers who claim to have revelation of the specific day of Christ’s return? Am I preparing and watching for Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, First, I thank You for the certainty of Christ’s return, although no man knows what day You have set for it to come to pass. Keep me from getting caught up in teaching that tries to predict dates and times. Rather, may I do my part to propagate the Gospel in the meantime, and keep watch for the signs of His coming. I pray all of this in the mighty and precious name of Jesus, my coming King! 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)
