Scripture

Jeremiah 34

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What revelation did God give Jeremiah regarding King Zedekiah? What did the people do after entering into covenant to free their slaves? How did God respond?

Application

From The Summarized Bible by K.L. Brooks: God’s compassion toward us should engage our compassion toward our fellow-men, and in any case the plain statement of His Word should be obeyed. Those who will not be in subjection to God’s law put themselves under His wrath and curse.

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Thank You for the covenant that I have with You because of Jesus! Help me to live as a joyful, obedient participant in that covenant, and may I never be guilty of subjugating my brothers and sisters for personal gain. I ask this 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 County leaders…

  • Commissioners, Assessor, Coroner, Treasurer, Clerks, Judges, Prosecutors, Defenders, Sheriffs
  • that they would make sound financial decisions
  • that they would all be faithful in carrying out their duties justly
  • that they would submit themselves to God

Catechism

PART 3: SPIRIT, RESTORATION, GROWING IN GRACE

Question #46: What is the Lord’s Supper?

Children’s Answer: Christ commanded all Christians to eat bread and to drink from the cup in thankful remembrance of him.

Adult’s Answer: Christ commanded all Christians to eat bread and to drink from the cup in thankful remembrance of him and his death. The Lord’s Supper is a celebration of the presence of God in our midst; bringing us into communion with God and with one another; feeding and nourishing our souls. It also anticipates the day when we will eat and drink with Christ in his Father’s kingdom.

Memory Verse

1 Corinthians 11:23–26 (HCSB)

For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: On the night when He was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and said, “This is My body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way, after supper He also took the cup and said, “This cup is the new covenant established by My blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.
