Scripture

Nehemiah 8

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

In what ways is respect for God’s word demonstrated here? From where does our strength come (10b)?

Application

Do I give the word of God the respect it deserves, or do I treat it as merely another book? How strongly am I rejoicing in the Lord?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Lord, May I always honor Your word, which you place above all things. May I not only desire to hear it, but to understand it and obey it. May I ever rejoice in You, my strength. 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.

  • Michael & Jenn Morgan (Eleanor)
  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz (Anabelle)
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Travis & Consuela Sauer (Mikayla, Christian, Donte, Cheyenne, Sera, Ella, Thomas)

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 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

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.
