This Week’s Prayer
Jesus, thank You for being good. Father, thank You for the plan to save us from hell. Holy Spirit, help us to realize the incredible wealth we have in Jesus. Help us to seek the things of God’s kingdom more than the things of this world. God, I continually recognize my struggle with my sin nature. Thank You for Your faithfulness to forgive me because I trust in the work of Jesus on the cross. Holy Spirit, give me courage and words to tell anyone any time about the gospel. Use me to rescue people from the kingdom of this world.
This Week’s Verse
Matthew 7:21–23 (ESV)
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
