God’s Truth for Trying Times - 10/6/20


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: ‬‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:12-14‬ 

“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians‬ ‭3:12-14‬)

CONSIDER: The humble believer in the Lord Jesus Christ knows who is in control. A humble believer acknowledges the sovereignty of God and in the strength of God presses on in faith and obedience.

THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
