"subjecting yourselves to one another in the fear of Christ."Ephesians 5:21
This week we are focusing on the church, the living body of Christ, as both our temporal, in time, and eternal family. Fellow followers of Jesus Christ are your brothers and sisters and will be forever. What an amazing family to be part of! I love when I get glimpses of what God has in store for all of us together for all eternity with Him, never to be separated again. Consider each believer as a member of your family and each unbeliever as a possible future brother or sister in Christ. Ask God to open the eyes of your heart to really absorb this truth into your heart so that you can love others as He loves you. Ask God to help you submit yourself to others in the fear of the Lord, as we all submit ourselves unto Jesus.
Disciple's Prayer for Today:
"Father, here I am, bowing before Your eternal majesty. I long to know You more and to be able to love those around me with Your love. Fill me up to overflowing with Your love today and help me to pour that love out to others. Help me today to understand that my life no longer belongs to me but is, in fact, Yours. Empower me to submit myself to my sisters and brothers as we all submit unto Your leadership. Thank You! In Jesus’ name, Amen!”
Prayer for the Unreached of the Day:
"Father, You show me such kindness and love in saving me so I come before You, standing in the holiness of Jesus and in His righteousness, asking that You would turn Your face in favor toward the Agnikula Vanniyan peoples of India. Let Your healing rains fall all over them today. Shine in their midst with the light of Your eternal kingdom. May the Holy Spirit fall in power over them today! Draw many to follow Jesus and help them grow strong in You and Your Word. Ignite multiplying church planting movements among them that impact the nations! In Jesus name I pray, Amen!"
