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.

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.

Scripture

Jeremiah 37

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Even though he had not listened to or obeyed God’s Word, what did Zedekiah ask of Jeremiah? What accusation did the Irijah make against Jeremiah? What happened?

Application

From The Summarized bible by K.L. Brooks: It is no new thing for those who have faithfully declared the Word of God and are the best friends of the Lord, to be represented as enemies, imprisoned and persecuted.

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Help me to be someone who reads, hears, and obeys Your Word all the time, rather than someone who ignores it, disobeys it, and only comes to You in desperate times. I ask that I would not be falsely accused for wrongdoing, but if I ever am, strengthen me to endure and remain faithful to You. I pray this in Jesus’ Name, Amen!
