Observation

Note the cooperation of so many people to rebuild the wall and gates of Jerusalem.

Application

Am I doing my part in cooperation with the people of God to accomplish God’s work?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Father God, Help me not to try to do too much on my own, nor to get lazy and do too little. rather, may I seek you to see where You would have me fit in to cooperate with Your people to carry on Your work. 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.

  • Dustin and Amy Barton
  • Debbie Brueggemann
  • Michelle Caldwell
  • Kathi Carr
  • Loran “Bud” Clark

Ministry:

  • Compassion International

CLF:

  • That we will be devoted to evangelism and growth; that the Lord will add to our numbers those who are being saved.

Community: Pray for orphans and children in foster care…

  • that they would come to know the adoptive Father-heart of God
  • that they would be positively influenced by Christian workers
  • that God would bring Christian friends alongside them
  • that they would come to salvation
  • that they would be adopted by godly parents

Catechism

PART 2: CHRIST, REDEMPTION AND GRACE

Question #27: Are all people, just as they were lost through Adam, saved through Christ?

Children’s Answer: No, only those who are justified by God by being united to Christ by faith.

Adult’s Answer: No, only those who are justified by God by being united to Christ by faith. Nevertheless, God in His mercy demonstrates common grace even to those who are not saved by restraining the effects of sin and enabling works of culture for human well-being.

Memory Verse

Romans 5:17 (HCSB)

Since by the one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
