God’s Truth for Trying Times - 5/15/20
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: 1 Corinthians 15:56-58
“The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:56-58)
CONSIDER: Because of Christ's victory over Satan, sin, and death at the cross, we have the amazing comfort of salvation victory given to us in Christ. We are overcomers because Jesus overcame our greatest enemy. Because of this, we are to be steadfast, immovable, always fully and fruitfully engaged in the work of the Lord, with confidence that our labor is for something eternal, not something that perishes.
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?
PRAY: Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
