Then a great and powerful wind
tore the mountains apart
and shattered the rocks before the Lord,
but the Lord was not in the wind.
After the wind there was an earthquake,
but the Lord was not in the earthquake.
Be like Jesus. Get alone with your Heavenly Father right now and pray.
Here’s a rather simple little prayer for today. Unplug from the world, take a deeeeeep breath and pray through every syllable with all your heart, soul and mind. And then walk with God every step of the day.
So far we’ve filled it in with LOVE, ENCOURAGE, FORGIVE, SUBMIT and SERVE. Here’s a greatest hits list drawn from all the other one anothers throughout the New Testament. Meditate on each one and ask the Holy Spirit to help you live ’em out.
Today’s word? SERVE. Here’s our key verse:
Serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13)
The ancient Bible-y word for “serve” in this verse was douleuo, which actually means “performing the duties of a slave.” In other words, we’re called to put others’ needs way way waaaaaay above our own.
