PRAY

Remember to pray & read the entire passage before beginning.
Psalm 118:24

 This is the day that the Lord has made;
    let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

WRITE

Even though each day may seem haphazard, or insignificant, difficult or down right awful … we can be certain that it was planned by our almighty and loving God. He prepared it for us for a purpose and we are called to be thankful for it! To rejoice, even! So no matter if you are battling a storm, fighting the mundane, or wading through uncertain waters – take time today to rejoice! Not because you feel like it or because it makes sense, but because He made today – and for that reason alone we can be glad!

  • Today is the day! Take time now to rejoice and be glad.

GROW

May our lives be a song of worship to our amazing & loving God! May we take time each day to rejoice and be glad!

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

1 Corinthians 2:9    Revelation 21:22-27

when you meet Jesus?

But I…

PRAY

Make sure you take time to read the passage and pray about it before you begin. Psalm 71:12-16

O God, be not far from me;
    O my God, make haste to help me!

Psalm 71:12 ESV

WRITE

I have often thought about the “but God” moments in the Bible. Stories of seemingly impossible situations that God redeems in only the way that God can. But here we see the psalmist writing of dire circumstances. He is fearing for his life and being pursued by his enemies. Yet he maintains an attitude that we all should have when difficult events arise.

  • What is his response in verse 14?
  • We all have struggles. Write down what you are struggling with today.
  • Then write … “but I” and write a praise to our Almighty God!

Live your Faith! James 2

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

James 2:14-26

pink wreath write

“I will show you my faith by my works.”
James 2:18b

  • James answers his own question, “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works?” Write his answer.
  • What does it mean to have faith (see also Romans 10:8-13)?
  • How does James say he (and you) will show faith?
  • Here James uses Abraham as an example of living his faith. Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice Isaac proved his faith. According to v. 23 (and Genesis 15:6) what did Abraham do to be found righteous?
  • Abraham’s actions revealed what was in his heart. See Luke 6:43-45 and write down how we all reveal our true heart.
  • As a result, what was Abraham called?
  • You, too, exhibit that you are a friend of God when you live your faith. Read Colossians 3:12-17 & write down  the traits and actions that characterize a Christian.
  • We’ve discussed before that we have a purpose here on earth. But, let’s revisit Matthew 5:14-16. Jesus speaks to you saying, “You are the light of the world.” What is the purpose in you revealing your light before men?
  • Give God the glory…seek today to spread the light of Christ by the way you act. Write at least one change you can make today to reveal your faith and His love.

Fulfill the Royal Law! James 2

background4

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

James 2:1-12

background4 write

“If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture,
‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself,’ you are doing well.”
James 2:8

  • Do you look at the people as God sees them?
  • When you judge someone by how they look, what do you become?
  • How does God see the poor?
  • In order to fulfill the “royal law” how should you act toward others?
  • The law finds you guilty when you________.
  • It is easy to think “that’s a little sin” or “it’s not that bad,”  but James tells us here when you fail at keeping one part of the law you are guilty of what offense?
  • By your actions you may not have committed every sin, you have still broken the whole law. But, praise God we know Jesus and it is through His blood – God’s mercy – that we receive righteousness and not on our own merit. For this reason, how are you called to look at others?
  • Is there a consequence when you do not have this attitude?
  • Has this passage changed the way you look at the lives of those around you? Write about it…

God love you…love others with that same love!  I will be praying for you!
