Day 38 - April 18, 2019

God Listen to My Prayer

 

Key Verse: John 17:20-23 (MSG) “I’m praying not only for them but also for those who will believe in me. Because of them and their witness about me.  The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind. Just as you, Father are in me and I in you. So they might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me.  The same glory you gave me, I gave them. So they’ll be mature in this oneness, and give the godless world evidence that you’ve sent me and loved them in the same way you’ve loved me.”


It’s hard being a witness for Christ...standing up for what you believe in. Being ridiculed, made fun of, watched closely and sometimes humiliated.  Stay away from those who try to reduce God. We can’t do it without God’s help. He is sovereign and will walk beside us every step of the way like a fierce warrior.

As believers we share a blessing when we drink the cup (representing the shedding of Christ’s blood) and eat the bread (representing the broken body of Christ).   “We don’t reduce Christ to what we are; he raises us to what he is” 1 Cor 10:17-18. Be of one heart and mind like Christ. Humble your heart before God now. Don’t judge others if you don’t want God to judge you fiercely later.

God gives us the glory to be one together in perfect unity. We all share that love.  Christ prayed that the world would know God sent His son because He loves us.


Prayer: God humble my heart and let me show the same love you have shown me.  Give me strength and wisdom to be a witness unto you. Amen



Scriptures: Psalm 102, Jeremiah 20:7-11, 1 Corinthians 10:14-17, 11:27-32, John 17
