  • Who is Jesus praying for in this passage?
  • You! If you know Jesus as your savior then He is praying for you! It really is too much to even fathom. From v. 21 what does he ask God to provide?
  • Jesus desires that we would be unified just as the Father and the Son are one. What is the result of that connection? Finish the SO THAT statement.
  • When this occurs what is accomplished (v. 23)?
  • Ultimately the world does not know God. But, Jesus has made Him known for what purpose?
  • Jesus desires that the love of God would be in us and that He would be in us (John 15:1-11). This is a love so great and deep that it can transform us and the world. Respond to this amazing love.
  • What insights does this shine into your life and how will you respond and apply it? Write down your thoughts and ask the Lord to lead you on this journey into deeper love with Him

Our Hope…His Love

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

Psalm 33

We wait in hope for the Lord;
    he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
    for we trust in his holy name.
 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
    even as we put our hope in you.

Psalm 33:20-22

  • This is a beautiful Psalm that clearly reveals who God is, His power on this earth, and in the hearts of man. Read over the Psalm and write down all the aspects of our world where God proclaims His authority.
  • How is God’s love described?
  • His love is unfailing as we wait in hope, trusting in Him… what should the condition of our heart be (v. 1-3 & v. 21)?
  • The Bible continually refers to God’s love as steadfast or unfailing (Genesis 39:21, Exodus 15:13,  Psalm 36:7, Jeremiah 9:23-24, 1 Corinthians 13:8) . What does it mean to you to trust in a God whose love never fails?

He is our only Hope… Praying that the Lord will renew your strength, cover you with His peace, provide His shield, and fill you with His love as you put your hope in Him! Praying for you!

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

“Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor;
be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.
”

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage.
Romans 12:11

NAME WRITE

  • Romans 12:11 tells us exactly how we should serve the Lord. Write it down.
  • What does service with a glowing & burning Spirit look like to you?
  • You have been baptized with the Holy Spirit and fire (Luke 3:17) Are you serving that way?
  • This isn’t about serving because you should, or serving because it looks good, or serving with a no effort because you signed up. NO! Why do we serve (Matthew 5:16)?
  • When you serve with enthusiasm and love you bring God glory. Service doesn’t necessarily mean heading to the soup kitchen (though this is a wonderful act of service). You can serve the Lord many ways (Colossians 3:23) – write down some ways you serve the Lord in your everyday life.
  • This verse really reflects on our attitude of service… it reminds me of the Third Day song, “Soul on Fire” .  Write down your reaction.

NAMEGROW

When we choose to enthusiastically serve the Lord we an bring glory to God and shine the light and love of Jesus in this dark world! Lord may you give each of us a soul on fire for you! Praying for you!
