Scripture

Jeremiah 40

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did the Babylonian captain of the guard do for Jeremiah and why?

Application

From The Summarized bible by K.L. Brooks: Sooner or later God’s true prophets will be justified before the persecutors, and they will be made sensible that their sin is the cause of all their misery. (God in His wrath still remembers mercy and admits a remnant upon a further trial of their obedience.)

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Oh Lord, my God and Father: Thank You that You vindictive those faithful to You, forgive the repentant, and punish the unrepentant who would persecute Your people. 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.

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.
