Memorize: Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
Reflection: (prayerfully consider the following) “As I think about the life and example of Jesus, what do I learn about how He loved and cared for those who were lost deep in sin and far from God and how do I treat them…in the same way as He would?”
Journal It: Write down who God has placed in your life that is spiritually disconnected. Write down some ways in which you can show them how to get connected with the Lord.
Pray About It: Identify one person you know who is far from God. Commit to pray for this person for the next five days. Lift up these two simple prayers. 1) God, help me love this person the way you do. Give me your heart for them. 2) Holy Spirit, please draw this person to yourself. Soften their heart and reveal yourself to them.
“Live-It” Challenge: Think of one extravagant and undeserved act of love you can offer to a person in your life who is not a follower of Jesus. Offer it prayerfully and with no strings attached. But, if they ask you why you did what you did, tell them about the grace you have received and how it compels you to extend the love of God to others.
Have a great week!
