1 Thessalonians 3:12

VERSE:
   May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.
    -- 1 Thessalonians 3:12
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=1+Thessalonians+3:12

THOUGHT:
   God is love. God is also the source of love. He pours love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). So how do we make our churches, our families, our small groups, and communities more loving? We pray for God to grow the love in those in groups, let them know that we are praying that prayer for them, then
communicate and demonstrate our love to those very same groups.

PRAYER:
   Father, use me to help be an example of love to those around me. Please pour your love into my heart through your Spirit and then channel that love out of my life to others. Please help the loving spirit in our congregation grow more and more, not just to each other, but also to those around us who are not part of your Kingdom
family. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

PREPARED TO FIGHT

 Ephesians 6:14-17
    http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Ephesians+6:14-17

 

   Dear Father, my support in battle,

   Help me stand, having put on my body the garments of TRUTH and the bullet-proof vest of the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS, having put on my feet the combat boots of PREPARATION IN THE GOOD NEWS OF PEACE, and besides these, having taken in hand the shield of TRUST IN GOD. (I feel like I need a gas mask of DISCERNMENT to protect me from the poison of Satan's propaganda.) Give me the wisdom that comes with the helmet of SALVATION and the zeal to take up the assault weapon of the SPIRIT, THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

   With all these in place, let me stand my ground . . . and fight!

   In the name of Jesus, the forger of our armor, I pray. Amen.

Romans 14:19


VERSE:
   Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.
    -- Romans 14:19
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Romans+14:19

THOUGHT:
   "Make every effort!" That's quite a challenge. But notice where that exertion is to be focused: peace and mutual edification. Both sides of this exhortation are two way responsibilities. I must pursue and share peace if I am going to have it myself. I must
edify, and be open to being edified, if mutual edification is going to happen. In other words, we live with other people in God's family. He wants us to be responsible for making relationships work in our spiritual family. He reminds us it will require strenuous effort. But, isn't that true in every family relationship? Love means sacrifice, effort, and concern for others. When we share our love willingly, however, we're much more likely to see it coming back to us!

PRAYER:
   Dear Heavenly Father, forgive me for my impatience and selfishness. Defeat the bad attitude of competitiveness that I often display in arguments and disagreements with others in your family. Energize me by your Spirit to see areas where I can be a
blessing and an encouragement to others. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
