LIFe with God

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly – Colossians 3:16 (NET)

In order for the Word to dwell richly in us, we need to do more than just listen to a sermon on Sunday morning or on the radio once in a while. Daily time alone in the Word is essential to grow in Christ and be an effective disciple for Him. And for believers to live in unity and to minister together effectively, they need to be in prayer for each other throughout the week.

To that end, we offer “LIFe with God” (LIFe = Living In Fellowship), a daily devotional composed and published by our Pastor, Scott F. Guinn. Each installment includes a Scripture reading (taking us through the entire Bible in three years) along with observation and application questions, and a guided prayer time that helps us to pray for every person in our church and every missionary/ministry we support each week.

You are encouraged to participate! It will take a little effort and discipline to build this habit, but the benefits are out of this world!

You can subscribe and receive these posts via email every morning by signing up in the sidebar.

LIFe with God: November 30, 2020

Scripture

Jeremiah 50

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What request did the remnant make of Jeremiah? What did they commit to do when they were making their request? What promise did God make and what warning did He give?

Application

From The Summarized bible by K.L. Brooks: The pride of men’s hearts sets God against them and ripens them in due time for utter ruin. Whatever wrong is done against God’s people will certainly be reckoned, for though God may have used their persecutions for the good of His people, God has a variety of instruments at command in the earth, and when He opens His armories, all enemies will find themselves overmatched. It is the comfort of Christians in distress that they have a Redeemer, Jesus Christ, who is strong, and will thoroughly plead their cause and give them rest.

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Heavenly Father, Thank You that, though You may use the wicked for Your purpose and allow them to persecute Your people for a time, You will always bring an end to it and punish them for their sin. Thank You for Jesus, my strong Redeemer who pleads my case and brings me rest. I pray this in His 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.

  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Pat Dumandan
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)
  • Gary Friend

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for young children in our community

  • For Godly influences

Catechism

PART 3: SPIRIT, RESTORATION, GROWING IN GRACE

Question #48: What is the church?

Children’s Answer: The church is the family of God and the body of Christ, of which He is the head.

Adult’s Answer: The church is the family of God and the body of Christ, of which He is the head. The universal church is all those who have received salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. The local church is a community of members of the universal church, who worship together, encourage and learn from one another, build each other up in the knowledge and grace of God, and spur each other on to good works. God sends out this community to proclaim the gospel and prefigure Christ’s kingdom by the quality of their life together and their love for one another.

Memory Verse

1 Corinthians 12:13-14,27 (HCSB)

For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body–whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free–and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.So the body is not one part but many. Now you are the body of Christ, and individual members of it.

Question #47: Does the Lord’s Supper add anything to Christ’s atoning work?

Children’s Answer: No, Christ died once for all.

Adult’s Answer: No, Christ died once for all. The Lord’s Supper is a covenant meal celebrating Christ’s atoning work; as it is also a means of strengthening our faith as we look to him, and a foretaste of the future feast.

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.
