Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.  
Matthew 25:14-30

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,  not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” 
Ephesians 25:14-30

  • In the Matthew passage Jesus shares with us the picture of a faithful servant. What characteristics did the faithful servants reveal?
  • If you are a believer, you are saved by God’s gift of grace through faith in Christ. Still, it is in this faith we were created by God to do “good works.”

*You HAVE received a gift!   (1 Corinthians 12:4-6)
* God asks you to USE your gifts! (1 Peter 4:10)
* DON’T BURY YOUR TALENTS!

  • Ask God to reveal to you today your talents and how you can best use them in service to Him! Write down your prayer…pray it frequently and watch as God grows you.

Not Ashamed

 blue dots pray

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.  
Romans 1:16-17

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.'” 
Romans 1:16-17

The Gospel is the Good News of Jesus Christ, His life, His death, His resurrection & His return for the salvation of all who believe.

  • Verse 16 proclaims the Gospel is what?
  • To whom is the power of salvation available?
  • When you become a believer, you are saved and justified by faith in Christ. Through Him God pours out His grace and gives you the gift of righteousness (Romans 1:17). In this verse how are you told the righteous should live?
  • I once read or heard – I can not remember – the quote, “Trust in God’s grace and act on your faith.” It is so easy to think of faith as a quiet & personal. But here we are told to LIVE by faith! How are you being called to actively live your faith.

What’s the Point?

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

Read 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5

blue circle write

Why can we trust what is written in God’s Word? Because that is exactly what it is GOD’s WORD!

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction,
and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
2Timothy 3:16 ESV

  • Using the entire passage from 2 Timothy, make a list of the ways scripture can be used in your life.
  • If you are diligent about seeking God and using scripture in your everyday life, what will result?
  • In 2 Timothy 4:2  Paul reiterates the list in a new way. Consider how it would look  if you live the charge that Paul makes. Write the thoughts the Spirit has revealed to you about following Paul’s charge.
