God’s Truth for Trying Times - 5/25/20


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: 2 Timothy 2:8

Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead. (2 Timothy 2:8)

CONSIDER: Memorial Day is a day to remember those who gave their lives for American freedom. These are freedoms we often take for granted. We remember with gratitude and thankfulness to those who have given their lives in the service of their country. Reminding ourselves and remembering helps us going forward. We are not to take lightly the sacrifices made for us. Above all, Christians are called to remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead. Remember that because Jesus died in our place for our sins, we have victory and we are never to take that for granted. We are to live wholeheartedly and dependently for the glory of God.


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.
