Tell The World

TODAY’S VERSE
“Sing about the glory of his name! Tell the world how glorious He is. – Come and see what our God has done what awesome miracles he performs for people!”
Psalms 66:2, 5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Some things are hard to contain. We can’t wait to get to work to tell everyone how excited we were about a sporting event. If a movie we watched was moving, we tell everyone how it brought us to tears. Anytime we win something, get a good deal or come into some extra money, all our friends know about it. And why not? We should share about those things that are meaningful in our life. And what if you knew about a store that was giving away $10,000 to the first hundred customers. Wouldn’t you go and take all your friends with you? Then why isn’t it this way with God? Why are we so reluctant to share what God has done for us? The only reason I can think of is that nothing is happening in our life. We know about God, but there is no relevance to our everyday living. When we think about witnessing we think that we have to tell people “about” God and most of us feel inadequate or are afraid of getting into an argument. But witnessing the way God intended, isn’t just sharing about God, it is sharing the excitement we feel because of what God is doing. God is loving us, providing for us, protecting us, saving us. God is active and when we are aware of it, it is natural to share with others all that is going on. God is busy in our lives and all He wants us to do is show people where the action is. Today, look for God’s active presence in your life and praise Him for it. And then share the wonder with those around you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for all that You are doing in my life. Help me be more aware of Your presence and the miracles You are doing all around me. Help me share with others all that You are doing in my life so they can they can have the same hope that I do. Help me lead others to You. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Sing

TODAY’S VERSE
“He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.”
Psalms 40:3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We can tell people about God or we can tell them about the God that has made a difference in our life! As we come to know Christ the more He will put a song in our heart. A song, like the Psalmist says, that will cause people to see what God has done and amaze them. More that that, they will trust in God for their own needs. This is what happened to the small town where a woman came to a well that Jesus was at. After she met Jesus and He gave her hope, she ran home and told everyone, “Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.” The Bible records that the many of the people came from the town to meet Jesus. Many trusted in Him as their Savior. People today are dying for lack of a genuine song, a song that will meet the deepest needs of their soul. God has called you and I to sing. When we do, other people just like us, will put their trust in the Lord.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I thank You for the song You have put in my heart. Help me sing! Help me share with others all the wonderful things You have done for me.
AMEN

Real Worship

TODAY’S VERSE
“No, this is the kind of fasting I want – Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.”
Isaiah 58:6-7 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What would God say about us at eleven o’clock on Sunday? You know, when we meet to worship. We sing our praise songs, we listen to the preaching, and we pass the offering plates. And then we go home, back to our own business, until we do it all over again a week later. All the while just miles from the front door of our church there are hundreds if not thousands of people hurting. Some hungry, some depressed, some broke, some addicted, some suicidal, some sleeping in their car. These all have families who are also hurting because of their plight. How many fathers and mothers are broken hearted over the plight of their children? How many children suffer because of the plight of their parents? And yet we worship. And then drive right by on our way home. When is the church going to listen to Jesus when He said, “Go into all the world?” not “Come into my house.” Surely we worship God in song and praise. Yes, we must feed on the preaching of His word. But not at the expense of ignoring what God really wants! Jesus said it best when he said, “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.’” Today, worship God by loving those hurting all around you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for only worshiping in Your house and not worshipping in Your world. Forgive me for ignoring the worship that you receive when I help those in need. Help me share my food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Help me give clothes to those who need them, and my not hide from relatives who need my help.
AMEN

See With The Eyes Of Jesus

TODAY’S VERSE
“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’”
Matthew 9:36-38 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus saw the crowds and when He did, He was filled with compassion. He healed, taught, loved and cast out demons. Now it is our turn. “Ask”, He said, “the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” He has asked us to go in His name and minister to others. We do this by doing what He did. It says, “When He saw the crowds, He had compassion.” Our commission is to see people with the eyes of Jesus. Dr. David Benner, in his book, “Sacred Companions” writes, “Seeing the other person through the eyes of Christ – this is my prayer as I seek to relate to people I encounter in daily life. For when I see them through the eyes of Christ, I see their worth and dignity. I also see what they can become, not simply what they are. And if I am really willing to see them as God sees them, I see Jesus in them; I see them as imagers of the God who was fully represented in Jesus.” When we see what Jesus saw, we too will be moved with compassion. Today, ask Christ to show you what He sees.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Jesus, You saw people and were moved with compassion. Help me see people through Your eyes. Help me love with Your love. Minister through me I pray.
AMEN

Shine The Light

TODAY’S VERSE
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
As Christ followers we have a Holy purpose! We are part of a Holy Mission. Evil forces have invaded the earth’s domain leaving mankind in darkness. Yet God, in His mercy, has called you and I to bring the light to the world. Each of us to the part of the world He has put us in. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. – Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Perhaps all this sounds over the top. Something you would see in “Lord of the Rings”, but the truth is most people are in a spiritual battle, struggling with sin or its effects, spending their time in spiritual darkness. Imagine being in utter darkness when all of a sudden someone comes by offering you eternal light. Being in blindness now you can see. That is the mission of the light bearer. People are searching for light to illuminate their soul and God has asked us simply to shine the light. Live out our inward reality where other people can see it. Love others the way Christ loves us. Lay out our platter of the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, so others can partake. Jobs are great, careers wonderful. If you have a vocation you are blessed, but you will never find a higher calling that bearing the light. Today, might God allow you to shine His light in every area of darkness you come in contact with.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for shining Your light into my dark world. Help me not forget. Today, help me carry Your light and shine it on all those in darkness around me.
AMEN

Lord, Do It Again!

TODAY’S VERSE
“The apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders among the people. – more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits, and all of them were healed.”
Acts 5:12, 14-16 (NIV)

“LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O LORD. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known.”
Habakkuk 3:2 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What if we read what God did in Acts and prayed the prayer that Habakkuk prayed? What do you think would happen to the church today? How would it change your life? We read the book of Acts. We see where God did mighty miracles. We see healings, we see people moved by God to share all they have with others. We see God speaking through His word and the power of the Holy Spirit, resulting in people all around the world being saved. What would Habakkuk think? He would probably encourage us to pray, “LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O LORD. Renew them in our day; in our time make them known.” Might this be the prayer of our heart until the day God brings revival.

TODAY’S PRAYER
LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of all you have done in the past. I pray, O LORD, please do the same in our day; in our time make your mighty power known. Along with Your power, use me and use Your church to bring Your love to a lost and dying world.
