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.

Scripture

1 Chronicles 21

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What was the process that led to David’s sin of taking a census in spite of God having previously forbidden it? What was the result? How did David respond?

Application

Do I often find myself taking matters into my own hands instead of trusting God? Do I take responsibility for the consequences and repent?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Heavenly Father, Like David did in today’s passage, I often take matters into my own hands, even when I know I shouldn’t. Help me to trust You and obey You. Help me to remember that the consequences of my sinful choices will often negatively impact others who were completely uninvolved. When I sin, may I immediately accept responsibly and repent, and move forward with You in faith. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

PART 2: CHRIST, REDEMPTION AND GRACE

Question #31: What do we believe by true faith?

Children’s Answer: We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, who was crucified, died, and was buried. The third day He rose again from the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the church, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Adult’s Answer: Everything taught to us in the gospel. The Apostles’ Creed expresses what we believe in these words: We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Memory Verse

Jude 3 (HCSB)

Contend for the faith that was delivered to the saints once for all.
