Hello and God bless you. Thank you for joining me in prayer today. May God give us hearts to hunger and thirst after Him. The Scripture we will be using is I Corinthians 15:1-28. Simply put, The Bible is God’s Word to us, and our prayer will be our response to Him. I invite you at this time to read this Scripture, as will I. We will ask the Lord to meet us somewhere in this passage. He may well meet us in different places! For now, let us stop all else that are doing, and take our place at Jesus’ feet, read this Scripture, and listen…….
Hello again! Did the Lord meet you? Did a passage or perhaps a phrase come alive in you? I pray that it is so.
The passage that spoke to me was I Corinthians 15:3: “I delivered to you as of first importance… that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.”
Would you pray with me?. “ Father of all faithfulness, we give You praise. Before You created the world and all worlds, we were in Your heart. Before You created humanity, You knew we would rebel against You. You knew that being our Creator would never be enough. You would have to become our Redeemer and Savior. You knew that the blood of God would have to be spilt. Your blood. Your death, Lord Jesus, is prophesied throughout the Old Testament. Why Jesus, did You do this for us? You became both High Priest and Sacrifice, Lion of Judah and Lamb of God.
My Lord, I grew up knowing all about Your crucifixion. But when you opened my eyes to see that you died ‘for my sins’ I entered into Your salvation and I was born again. That’s when I fell in love with You. That’s when my life finally made sense. That’s when my life found purpose. Lord, why did You do it? Why did You die for our sins? Only because You loved us with an everlasting love!
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Praise and thanks to You. As a song says, “You paid a debt You did not owe, I owed a debt I could not pay; I needed someone to wash my sins away. And now I sing a brand new song, ‘Amazing Grace.’ For Jesus paid the debt that I could never pay.” And You did!
Grant us all today, our Lord, that we may love you, zealously, rightly, and completely. Truly, You are worthy!
Love, Your Grateful Ones
