Scripture

Isaiah 57

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What sin did Israel keep committing? How does God show His grace in spite of this?

Application

Do I keep committing idolatry by allowing other things to take first place in my life? Do I go to God in contrition to confess my sin and receive cleansing and peace?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, You are God alone, and there is no other. I confess that far too often I allow other people and other things to take priority over You in my life, which is idolatry. Remind me to worship, trust, and take refuge in You. Thank You for Jesus! Because of Him, I stand clean before You, in spite of my many sins. When I fall, may I turn to You for healing and peace. 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:

  • Dave & Debbie Spears
  • Mike & Ann Thorn
  • Donna Thurman
  • Steve Vinsonhaler
  • Justin & Bonnie Wilkerson (Janae, Jordan)
  • Sree & Irena Yalamanchili (Aria)

Ministry:

  • Mugabi Charities – ministering to orphans in Uganda

CLF:

  • That we would be devoted to thanksgiving and praise to our Lord–for what He has done, for what He is doing, for what He will do, and for who He is–in good times and bad.

Community: Pray for Public Service Professionals (Firefighters, law enforcement, and medical personnel)…

  • Strength to serve well
  • Safety/health
  • Salvation for lost & ministry opportunities for saved
  • Strong family/marriage relationships
  • Strong, God-honoring friendships

Catechism

PART 2: CHRIST, REDEMPTION AND GRACE

Question #25: Does Christ’s death mean all our sins can be forgiven?

Children’s Answer: Yes, because Christ’s death on the cross fully paid the penalty for our sin, God will remember our sins no more.

Adult’s Answer: Yes, because Christ’s death on the cross fully paid the penalty for our sin, God graciously imputes Christ’s righteousness to us as if it were our own and will remember our sins no more.

Memory Verse

2 Corinthians 5:21 (HCSB)

He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
