Imagine

PRAY

There are passages in scripture that give us a peek inside of heaven.

1 Corinthians 2:9    Revelation 21:22-27
Revelation 5   John 17:24   John 14:1-3

But, until the day He calls us home we will not know what it it will be like. What joy it will be to praise our Almighty God face to face!

WRITE

What do you think that you’ll do
when you meet Jesus?

Listen to the song by Mercy Me and pray about it…

GROW

It really is too much to imagine. Thanking God we have the gift of Jesus Christ… that one day we will be able to be in heaven  – bowing, singing, praising, dancing, loving, being still… Praying that we would have a glimpse of that day as we put our Hope in Him!

How to Act Like a True Christian – Digging Deep Into Romans 12:9-21

“Rejoice with those who rejoice.” 
Romans 12:15a

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage.

  • Sometimes it’s easy to join others in their happiness, but sometimes it is difficult, even painful to rejoice along with others. It could be a struggle that we are going through, or a painful lesson we’ve learned, maybe a great loss or simple envy. But, no matter what… Romans 12 tells us how we are to react to the joy of others. Write it down.
  • Is there a place where you are finding it difficult to rejoice with others. Confess it now, and ask the Lord to change your heart (Psalm 51:10)
  • Remember no matter how alone you may feel. If you know Jesus, He is with you (Matthew 28:20). He will give you the strength to love the unlovable, he will show you joy in the midst of sorrow, or help you overcome envy.We have a choice each day to share joy with others or exist alone in our own little world. How are you going to choose to live?

  • Who is our only hope (John 3:16).
  • What does it mean to you that we have a living hope (Luke 24:46-49)?
  • If you know Jesus, your hope is certain. How does 1 Peter 1:4 describe you inheritance?
  • In John 14:1-3 Jesus himself tells us about what we have to look forward to. Write down what he is preparing for you.
  • This gives us much to rejoice about. Our hope is certain our place is prepared. We should live with an attitude of Joy clinging to our true Hope… Jesus. Praise Him now for His gift to us, and ask the Lord to maintain in you a joyful hope.
  • Remember… this world puts it’s hope in “things.” Their hope is dead. Let us show today in our actions and attitudes what it means to have a living hope in Jesus Christ.
