ALL STIRRED UP

 
Hebrews 10:24
 
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works." ESV 
 
To consider something is to take time to focus on it and take time to really think about it. We are encouraged to consider our brothers and sisters in Christ and how we might get them motivated to be like Him.
 
Lord, forgive us for our lack of motivation and neglecting our responsibility to motivate others to do Your will. Help us to consider how to keep our faith kindled and to motivate others to do the same. In Your name we pray, Amen.

WHAT KIND OF SUFFERING MAKES US REJOICE

 
1 Peter 4:16
 
"Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name." ESV 
 
Suffering is a human reality that no one escapes in this life. Most of the time we suffer because we've done something we shouldn't have done or we get caught in the crossfire of natural consequences. But how often has any of us suffered because we are Christians? If we suffer for that, we can rejoice and praise Him. He will honor us and bless us when we suffer for Him.
 
Lord, forgive us when we complain for suffering when it is our own doing or we are experiencing being a part of this world. When we suffer for being Your children, help us to rejoice and give You praise. In Your name we pray, Amen.

THE BLOOD AND THE EARS OF THE LORD NEVER FAIL

 
Isaiah 59:1
 
"Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear." ESV 
 
Some people believe that their lives are so far into sin that they can never be saved. There is no sin that the blood of Jesus Christ cannot cleanse. Some people believe the Lord does not listen to their prayers or does not care. Every prayer that is spoken from the heart to the Lord Jesus Christ is answered. His answer may not be what we had expected, but it will be answered. His blood cleanses, His ears hear and move Him to answer.
 
Lord, we give You praise for Your precious and powerful blood that covers all sin. We thank You for hearing all our prayers and for answering them in Your time and in Your way. In Your gracious name we pray, Amen.

BEING THE GREATEST IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK

 
Matthew 23:11
 
"The greatest among you shall be your servant." ESV 
 
The definition of a servant is a person in the service of another. If we are freely serving others in the love of Christ, we are greatest in His kingdom.
 
Lord, we recognize You as the greatest Servant of all. Help us to follow You in service to our fellowmen and to know that in serving others, we are serving You. In Your name we pray, Amen.

GIVE THEM THE KEY

 
1 Corinthians 9:19
 
"For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them." ESV 
 
If we have the key that opens the prison door to set us free, why would we not want to pass that key on to others. Then they will pass the key on to yet others. To take the time and energy to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others, is giving them the Key to eternal freedom.
 
Lord, help us to remember that someone took the time to share the gospel with us so that we would be set free from sin. Give us the desire to pass the Good News along to all who come across our paths. In Your Great name we pray, Amen.

FREE TO SERVE

 
Galatians 5:13
 
"For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another." ESV 
 
Just the thought of being free is a wonderful thing. We were made free by the sacrifice of Jesus at the cross. We are free to say no to the things of this world that once held us captive. We are free to live so that we become more and more like Christ.
 
Lord, we praise You for setting us free to love and serve You and one another. Help us to use our freedom solely for Your kingdom. In Your name we pray, Amen.

TEACH THE CHILDREN

 
Judges 2:10
 
"And all that generation also were gathered to their fathers. And there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord or the work that he had done for Israel." ESV 
 
When all of us living now have died, will the new generation know the Lord? Are we teaching our children, and teaching them to teach their children about the Lord Jesus Christ? If we fail to do so, we will answer to the Lord God Himself for a generation who does not know Him.
 
Lord, help us to live and teach our children everyday of Your great love and mercy. Help us to make this our priority so that coming generations will know the true God. We pray in Your name, Amen.
