TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
February 16, 2011
VERSE:
Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good
things with his instructor.
-- Galatians 6:6

THOUGHT:
Yes, there are those who take advantage of God's flock and
misuse God's money. This is tragic because many of God's servants
of the Word all over the world minister with few economic resources
or financial support. While God never promised ministers of the
Word economic wealth, he does remind us of the importance of caring
for them. Let's use this week as a time that we make sure those who
share God's word with us are supported in ways that enable God's
ministry through them. Let's also remember that sharing "all good
things" means much more than money! Let's keep our missionaries,
our ministers, and our teachers in our prayers. Let's commit to
send them regular notes of specific encouragement so their ministry
will be a blessing not only to us and the Lord, but also to them!

PRAYER:
Holy God, you sent the Living Word so that I could know you.
Thank you for those who have shared your Word with me. I ask you to
bless the Bible teachers, the ministers of the Word, and the
pastor-teachers who have shared your truth and grace with me.
Protect them from discouragement and sin. Strengthen their will.
Bless their families. Fill them with your Spirit and power. And
dear Father, please use me to help them know how precious they are
to me and to you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
February 15, 2011
VERSE:
Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch
over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their
work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage
to you.
-- Hebrews 13:17

THOUGHT:
We often fail to realize that one of the very best ways we can
make Kingdom leadership better is by being better followers.
Kingdom leadership means that leaders will have to answer to God
for how they have led. Kingdom citizenship means that we will be
held responsible for how we have obeyed and blessed our leaders.
What have you done to show your love, respect, and support for your
church leaders lately?

PRAYER:
Almighty King, all authority and dominion belong to you. You
alone are worthy of power and the right to rule. Please bless our
leaders at church that they may lead by serving and following
Christ. Please empower me to follow their leadership in ways that
exalt the cause of Christ and bless the leaders in your Kingdom.
May my life never be a burden to them or an embarrassment to you.
In Jesus' name I ask it. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
February 14, 2011
VERSE:
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
-- Romans 12:9

THOUGHT:
Genuine love involves hate. Genuine love means that we hate
evil. We detest its creeping into our hearts and ruining our
relationships. We abhor its effects on those we love. We are
repelled by the eternal destruction it causes in those whose lives
are tender, or weak, or wavering. So the very best thing we can do
for those we love is to cling to what is good and stay far away
from evil and wickedness.

PRAYER:
Loving Father, may my life be a source of goodness and joy in my
family and with my friends. Please give me wisdom to see what is
good and the courage to pursue it with passion. Please protect me
from the evil one and forgive me when I have followed his
temptations. Please protect those I love from the fallout of my own
selfish and evil decisions. Please purify and cleanse me so that my
life may be lived holy, and wholly, to you. In the name of your
Holy Son, Jesus. Amen.
TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
February 13, 2011
VERSE:
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
-- Ephesians 5:21

THOUGHT:
Worship on Sunday can be inspiring and uplifting. Worship in
everyday life can be exhilarating. Worship in our relationships can
be transformational. But such worship always requires that we give
up our own ways, our own wills, and our own wants and learn to live
for another. If we truly live with Christ Jesus as our Lord, we
will live as he did; we will submit to others to serve them for
their good and to meet their needs. Sometimes that means being
tender. Other times that means being tough in a loving way. But it
always means living for them to God's glory.

PRAYER:
O LORD God Almighty, I find it hard to submit myself and my
desires to anyone else. I find it so easy to see things only from
my point of view. I catch myself looking out for my own
self-interest and not the welfare of others. Please fill me with
your Spirit more mightily so that my life displays your love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and
self-control. In Jesus' name I ask for your divine help so that my
life displays more of Jesus' character. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
February 12, 2011
VERSE:
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow
up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.
-- Ephesians 4:15

THOUGHT:
Truthful words are accurate. Words spoken in love can be a
blessing. But truth spoken in love is redemptive: this kind of
speech blesses those who hear it and matures those who speak it.
While speaking the truth in love is often not easy, it's worth it!
Look at God and see how painful it was to speak his Word in love by
sending Jesus. But in the process of that one sacrificial Word, he
has saved us and revealed his heart of grace, mercy, and love.

PRAYER:
Holy God, may the words I speak be truthful and loving. Please
forgive me when I have told the "painful truth" to win arguments,
to hurt feelings, or to impress others. Please forgive me for the
times I exaggerated, distorted, or lied. I want my words to be
simple and tender, truthful and loving. I want others to see your
grace in the way I speak to them. In the name of my Savior, Jesus,
I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
February 10, 2011
VERSE:
The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a
deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
-- Proverbs 15:4

THOUGHT:
Words are powerful. Communicators know this. Negotiators know
this. Deep down, you know this. Words have blessed you and words
have devastated you. The healing that comes from a kind and tender
word is precious. The destruction of a cruel taunt or a well-told
deception is crushing. To have such power is amazing. To use this
awesome power found in our speech is an awesome responsibility.
Words do have the power to give life, hope, and peace when offered
in love to honor Jesus. Let's speak those words today!

PRAYER:
O Father, I want my words to be a blessing today. I want them to
reflect your grace. I want them to bring healing to the hurting and
comfort to the grieving. I want them to be tender with the broken.
I want them to be honorable and truthful in difficult
circumstances. I want them to be upright when the language around
me is crude. Through your Spirit, use my speech to bless others and
bring you praise. In the name of Jesus, your ultimate Word, I pray.
Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
February 9, 2011
VERSE:
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
-- Psalm 63:3

THOUGHT:
Sounds like the words to some modern love song, doesn't it:
"Your love is better than life."? Well, it is a love song; it's
just not modern. While in the desert, David spoke of his longing
for the LORD. He recognized that life would be worthless if he had
to live it without the love of God. When is the last time you've
told God you loved him? When was the last time you sang a love song
to Jesus? No matter how long or short that time has been, today is
THE perfect time to let God know how precious his mercy is to you,
how liberating his grace is for you, and how his love is more
important to you than life itself.

PRAYER:
Loving Father, you have sacrificed so much for me and you have
given so much to me. I do not have adequate words to express my
thanks, my appreciation, and most importantly, my love for you. But
please receive my words knowing the commitment and passion of my
heart when I say, "Dear God, I love you." In Jesus' name I praise
and thank you. Amen.

February 8, 2011
VERSE:
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of
death? Thanks be to God -- through Jesus Christ our Lord!
-- Romans 7:24-25

THOUGHT:
While marred by sin and death, human beings are still created in
God's image and fashioned in our mother's womb by his Sovereign
care. But we bump up against the hard reality of our weakness and
failure. We cannot be like God in his most defining attribute,
holiness. We sin. We rebel. We fail. We do what we know we should
not do. We neglect the important matters of God's will and nitpick
at nothing. With our words, we hurt and injure those we love. Who
can save us from these bitter and limiting realities that we find
in ourselves? Praise and hallelujahs go to Jesus when we trust him
as our Messiah and Lord, since he can then save us from these evils
and make us ready to live a life of blessing to others and to God.

PRAYER:
Worthy of praise and honor are you God Most High. You are
mighty, holy, and beyond compare. You have also chosen to be
loving, generous, merciful, forgiving, and tender with us, your
children. Thank you for being God, just the way you have chosen to
reveal yourself to us as God. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT --
February 4, 2011
VERSE:
Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying
love.
-- Ephesians 6:24

THOUGHT:
What do you have that lasts forever? Not much unless it is
connected to the Lord Jesus Christ. So many things we love and
pursue are hollow, fleeting, shallow, and vain. But grace comes,
grace stays, and grace lives with those whose love is the Lord
Jesus Christ. Neither time nor the grave can strip away our grace
in him when he is our Lord and he is our love.

PRAYER:
Holy God, I acknowledge that you loved me long before I knew
anything about you. I confess that despite your overwhelming love
for me, I have strayed from your will. But Father, deep within my
heart I love you and thank you for sending your Son Jesus. His
sacrifice and your mercy have not only given me hope, but they have
also given me confidence to face whatever lies ahead today and all
the days that follow. Please fill my heart with love for you and
your Son by the power of your Holy Spirit. Dear Father, may my
allegiance to you be as unwavering and undying as your love is for
me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 31, 2011
VERSE:
He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that
the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear
the LORD your God.
-- Joshua 4:24

THOUGHT:
God brought the Israelites miraculously through the Jordan River
during the flood season because of his love and grace and to
fulfill his promises to them. But he was also making an important
statement about himself and his people. He always wanted Israel to
"reverence" him. In addition, he wanted Israel's enemies to quake
with fear. They did. And God won a great victory for himself and
his people because of his faith.

PRAYER:
Holy and majestic God, you are clothed in righteousness and
bathed in glory. I want to always treat you with the respect and
reverence you deserve. Please forgive me for the times when I was
not as reverent or respectful of you as you deserve. Forgive me
when I didn't hold your name up as holy when others were using it
in vain. You are worthy of my life, my love, and my all. I want to
bring praise to you now and forever. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 30, 2011
VERSE:
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power
is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more
gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
-- 2 Corinthians 12:9

THOUGHT:
When I pray, I often catch myself simply wanting God to do what
I want, not necessarily what is best or most expedient for those
around me or for the good of the Kingdom. I don't like to hear that
God told Paul that he had asked enough about deliverance from his
problem. Instead, Paul needed to learn that God's gracious strength
and mercy were enough to sustain him even in trial. While I know I
need to learn this same lesson, it is daunting. I want God to keep
things nice and tidy for me. But then I remember I am a follower of
Christ. If I am to become like my Savior, then I have to let go of
my requirements on God's answers and open up to God's work to
redeem others through me, no matter the personal cost. Only then
can I truly know that his grace is sufficient for me!

PRAYER:
Patient and loving Shepherd, guard my heart from discouragement
in tough times and guard it from arrogance in good times. I know
that without you I have nothing that is permanent. Thanks for
giving me a permanent, steadfast hope of heaven with you, because
of your grace and strength shared with me. In the name of Jesus I
pray. Amen.

VERSE:
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask
or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to
him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all
generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
-- Ephesians 3:20-21

THOUGHT:
Sometimes there is nothing left for us to do except praise God!
While we may sometimes dream of doing great things for God and his
Kingdom, the dreams aren't as big as God's plans. While we may be
richly talented, influential, powerful, or rich, these are merely
tools in God's hands, not symbols of our sufficiency. "God is able"
has to be one of the best and most accurate phrases in the Bible.
But this time, it's said about his work in you in me. He is able to
do much more than we imagine to work through and in us. What can we
say to that? Hallelujah!

PRAYER:
Loving Father, please help me better know and live your will. I
want to be your vessel of ministry, healing, blessing, and hope to
those around me at work and play. Please use me to your glory
today, and always. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you
with power through his Spirit in your inner being.
-- Ephesians 3:16

THOUGHT:
What is one of the most important things we can do for those we
love in the Lord? We can pray for them. But more than that, we can
pray that God will strengthen them with power through his
indwelling Spirit. This same Holy Spirit raised Jesus from death
(Eph. 1:19). This same Holy Spirit is God's great gift for those
who ask (Luke 11:13). This same Holy Spirit reanimated a valley of
dry bones (Ezekiel 37). And this same Holy Spirit will strengthen
those we love in the Lord if we ask for him to!

PRAYER:
Mighty and awesome God, I have several brothers and sisters in
Christ who need your grace, mercy, and power poured into their
lives by your Spirit. Some need to be convicted of their
sinfulness. Some need strength and courage for their difficult road
ahead. Some need power to overcome besetting sin in their lives.
Please strengthen them with your power in their inner being through
your Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

January 27, 2011
VERSE:
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this
all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
-- 2 Corinthians 4:7

THOUGHT:
While there are many talented and successful Christians in the
world today, they are merely vessels for God's message of grace,
hope, and power. Our focus should never be on the container for the
message. Instead, what is most important is the integrity of the
messenger no matter the situation, so that the message can be seen
without distraction. God's power, not our own, is what sustains us;
we are simply a vessel, a tool, in the hands of the Lord.

PRAYER:
Almighty and all-powerful God, thank you for using me to
minister to others as your partner in the work of grace. May my
service help them more perfectly see the glory of your truth and
grace you gave us in your Son. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of
God boldly.
-- Acts 4:31

THOUGHT:
Prayer changes us. Prayer calls on God to change circumstances.
Prayer is powerful. Prayer brings revival. Prayer transforms God's
people and brings about salvation. Prayer makes us bold for the
Lord. So why do we find it so hard to find time to pray?

PRAYER:
Majestic God, please raise up prayer warriors who will help
transform your church and who will battle Satan. Please fill your
Church with the Holy Spirit and with boldness. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT -
January 25, 2011
VERSE:
For it is commendable if a man bears up under the pain of unjust
suffering because he is conscious of God.
-- 1 Peter 2:19

THOUGHT:
Unjust suffering! Ouch, even the sound of those words sends a
chill up and down my spine. Such a thing doesn't seem fair or
appropriate -- and it isn't. Yet we have many brothers and sisters
bearing up under pain and unjust suffering because of their
commitment and loyalty to the only True God and to his Son, Jesus
Christ. Wouldn't it be incredible if those of us who are not
touched by terrible persecution or hardship would begin each day
praying for those in our spiritual family who do face hardship,
persecution, suffering, and mistreatment? As they display the grace
of Christ to honor God in the face of such difficulty, let's pray
that our Father will not only give them strength to endure, but
that he will also deliver them soon!

PRAYER:
Holy and merciful Father, please bless your children today who
suffer pain and hardship while displaying the grace of Jesus.
Whether these problems are because of persecution or because of
life's difficulties, I pray that you strengthen my brothers and
sisters who are suffering. But Father, I know the only permanent
answer for this suffering is for Jesus' return, so please send him
soon. In the name of the Coming Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.

January 24, 2011
VERSE:
Peter and John replied, "Judge for yourselves whether it is
right in God's sight to obey you rather than God. For we cannot
help speaking about what we have seen and heard."
-- Acts 4:19-20

THOUGHT:
We can't contain what we've experienced in Jesus. We can't help
but tell about what we've heard. No ruler, no threat, has been able
to completely stop the voice of God from being heard through his
people's witness. Sharing our faith happens out of the overflow of
our experiences in Christ and our relationship with Christ. When we
share our faith in this way, the authenticity of our witness can be
rejected or ridiculed, but it can't be erased. We have experienced
God's work in our lives. How dare we keep silent? We can't!

PRAYER:
God of the nations, please give your missionaries and ministers
words of truth and power, especially as they face ridicule and
hostility. Please help me better know how to reach the lost around
me and please bless our evangelistic leaders as they try to
strategize and discern your way of reaching the lost in our world
today. In the name of Jesus, the atoning sacrifice for my sins and
the sins of the whole world, I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one
died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that
those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who
died for them and was raised again.
-- 2 Corinthians 5:14-15

THOUGHT:
What motivates us to do what we do? What drives us to
accomplish, to achieve, and to pursue even more? Paul said that
love was his compelling force. What would happen in our lives if
love was truly THE compelling factor in our motivation and
behavior? What if our desire to love those who do not know Jesus'
saving grace became our all-consuming concern? He died so that it
would be! Let's not disappoint him.

PRAYER:
God of eternity, please be with me as I seek to allow love to be
my primary compelling motivation in life. I want to show Jesus my
love and appreciation for all that he has done to save me. I want
to live for Jesus so others know he is Lord of my life. I want my
words and life to show his love to others so they can truly
experience it and come to know him. Please bless me as I pursue
this goal. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen

[Jesus said] "When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and
authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or

what you should say."
-- Luke 12:11-12

When we need help most, Jesus promises he will be there and will
send his Spirit to give us the words we need. Throughout the
centuries, this promise has sustained those facing persecution and
ridicule. It helped them realize that they were not alone and that
they didn't need to worry about having the perfect answer to
everything as they were going in to face a hostile audience. This
same promise sustains Christians today whether they are under
governmental persecution or facing the hostility of unbelievers in
the workplace, at school, or at home. When facing the hostility of
unbelievers, we know we are not alone; our Savior goes with us.

PRAYER:
Loving God, I need your strength and the Holy Spirit's help as I
speak with those who are opposed to your message of salvation. I
want your words, not mine, to be what others hear in that crucial
moment . Please give me wisdom to know when to speak, what to say,
and when to remain silent. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT -
January 21, 2011
VERSE:
He [Jesus] said to them, "It is I; don't be afraid." Then they
were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat
reached the shore where they were heading.
-- John 6:20-21

THOUGHT:
Jesus comes to his disciples to comfort them in one of their
worst nightmares -- a storm on the sea. He literally tells them, "I
Am; do not be afraid." Two key things are here for us to notice:
First, Jesus uses a name ("I Am") that identifies himself with God
who delivered Moses and the Israelites from Egypt. Second, he uses
a surprisingly frequent command found throughout the Bible: "Don't
be afraid." When we are willing to invite Jesus into our lives
during the middle of our storms and messes, he not only says, "I
Am; don't be afraid!" but he also helps us find our way to our most
important destination, ultimate deliverance.

PRAYER:
O God, the great I Am, you redeemed Israel from Egypt, you won
great victories for David, and you raised Jesus from the dead. I
know you can deliver me from what may come my way. Please forgive
me when I don't act with the boldness that is called for by this
kind of faith and strengthen me to confidently trust in your
presence. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 20, 2011
VERSE:
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear,
because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not
made perfect in love.
-- 1 John 4:18

THOUGHT:
While I approach God with reverence and awe because he is the
holy and majestic God, I don't have to fear his presence. Because
of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, I know God is my Abba Father. He
longs for me to draw near him. He has shown me his heart by sending
Jesus. He has shown me his love by having Jesus die for me. If he
loves me that much, then I can trust that his desire is to save and
bless me. I don't have to fear his presence or his judgment as I
continue to serve him. As his child, his love should drive fear
from my heart and replace it with love from his abiding presence,
the Holy Spirit.

PRAYER:
Holy and Righteous Father, I thank you for your overwhelming
love demonstrated to me in Jesus. I thank you for providing the
atoning sacrifice for my sins and for adopting me into your family.
Father, please cast all fear from my heart and help me walk
confidently with you and for you, with character and purpose. In
Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 19, 2011
VERSE:
We are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of
those who believe and are saved.
-- Hebrews 10:39

THOUGHT:
I love this description of God's people that precedes "the faith
Hall of Fame" (Hebrews 11). When you look at God's people over the
centuries, they are not a bunch of wimps, crybabies, and cowards.
Yes, they do have their bad moments. But all in all, they are not
those who quit on their quest. They are those whose faith has
endured and found God's great victory of salvation. This verse
excites me because the Holy Spirit does not say "we CAN be those
who don't shrink back." Instead, he is confident in us, our
endurance and our faithfulness and says we ARE not "shrinkers," but
we ARE believers who will be saved!

PRAYER:
Thank you, Mighty God, for your confidence in me. With your
help, I won't be a "shrinker." I will stand for your truth, your
character, and your will even if those around me do not. I believe
you have great things ahead for your people, so I refuse to shrink
back. Please empower me with your Spirit so that I fully serve you
with confidence and integrity. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

January 18, 2011
VERSE:
In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be
afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
-- Psalm 56:4

THOUGHT:
When all is said and done, there really isn't a whole lot we can
trust. Most of us have been hurt at one time or another by a friend
who has betrayed our trust. The world economy is volatile and
things can turn sour in just a few days. The weather shifts and
changes by the hour. But in our world of change, in our heartbreak
and disappointment, there is one constant. We can trust God. We
don't have to fear change. He is our anchor that holds in the
strongest storms. He is our strength in our worst battles. His word
and his promises speak of good things for us. We don't have to be
afraid; we can trust in him.

PRAYER:
Almighty Father, my Deliverer and Strength, with your help and
presence I will not fear the days ahead. I praise you for
sustaining your people Israel through history. I praise you for
preserving your Word, the Scriptures, through persecutions and
purges. I praise you and will not be afraid because my life and my
future are in your hands. In the name of Jesus, my Lord, I pray.
Amen.

January 17, 2011
VERSE:
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side
of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand
will hold me fast.
-- Psalm 139:9-10

THOUGHT:
I guess for those who find themselves in places they shouldn't
be, the abiding presence of God might be a bit terrifying. But I
find great comfort in knowing that no matter where I go, from the
moment of my conception to the day of my death, God is always
there. He is there to guide me and sustain me. Even when I'm in
places I am not supposed to be, doing things I am not supposed to
do, he is still there. I can turn to him in repentance and receive
his grace. I can turn to him in need and receive his strength. I
can turn to him and know I am not alone.

PRAYER:
Thank you, Father for loving me and personally knowing me. Thank
you for the assurance that I won't have to face a day without you.
Thank you for the comfort of knowing that I will never face my
sorrows alone. Thank you for being the strength that sustains me
when I don't have the strength to go on. Thank you that when
tomorrow dawns, I will be with you no matter what happens during
the night. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
-- Philippians 4:13

THOUGHT:
What's the basis of our happiness? If it's our outward
circumstances, we're all in trouble because sooner or later, these
aren't going to be too good. Paul said he had learned the secret to
living above life's circumstances. That secret was Jesus Christ.
Jesus was his assurance that no matter how things were here, he was
not alone. No matter how difficult things might be, these problems
were not permanent. No matter how hard life was at the time, Jesus
would give him the strength to overcome the difficulties. Paul was
just as sure that Jesus will do this for you and me!

PRAYER:
God of glory and might, thank you for the stories in the Bible
of your great power. They give me courage and hope when I face my
problems. I believe Jesus can deliver me, sustain me, and uphold me
through my difficulties today and every day to follow. Please
forgive me for those times when I didn't turn to you and honestly
talk to you about my struggles. O LORD, I need the strength, the
comfort, and the presence of Christ today. In the name of my Savior
Jesus, I pray. Amen.

January 14, 2011
VERSE:
[Jesus said] "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I
have loved you, so you must love one another."
-- John 13:34

THOUGHT:
Wow, that's a tall order to fill, isn't it? Jesus has just
washed the feet of his disciples. Over the next few hours, Judas
will betray him with a kiss, Peter will deny him three times, and
the other 10 disciples will forsake and leave him when he faces his
death. Yet he still washed their feet knowing they would do this.
He still goes to the cross for them while knowing they will abandon
him. I'm not sure that I can love like that ... yet. However, with
the Holy Spirit's help, I will make a renewed commitment to love
others who have hurt and disappointed me. I will also seek to mend
relationships where I have hurt and disappointed others.

PRAYER:
Faithful Father, thank you for your never-ending love. Please
fill me with your Holy Spirit and pour love into my heart so I can
love others as Jesus has loved me. I need your help to love those
who have disappointed and hurt me. O God, I don't want my
bitterness or resentment to keep someone from serving you and
knowing Jesus' grace. In the name of my loving Savior I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting
away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
-- 2 Corinthians 4:16

THOUGHT:
While we joke about growing older, the challenges of aging are
tough. We realize our mortality. Our bodies can betray us. We can't
do what we once could do. As Christians, we know that our aging
actually brings us closer to home and to the time when Jesus gives
us immortal bodies not subject to decay. God can help us use these
physical realities to be heavenly reminders of what is important.
With the help of his Spirit, we can be transformed to be more like
our Savior and to be more ready for our heavenly home!

PRAYER:
Almighty God, I confess that I like getting older less and less,
the older I get. I am thankful, however, that each day older I get,
the closer I am to coming home to you. Please help me not to become
cynical, negative, or bitter as I grow older. Instead, please renew
me and use me to bless others who need to find their way home to
you. In Jesus' mighty name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another
above yourselves.
-- Romans 12:10

THOUGHT:
We are to be devoted to one another. We are to honor one
another. And the basis of this loving devotion and honor is found
in one central truth: Because God is our Father, we are one family.
We are siblings in God's Kingdom. Our relationship is eternal and
built on God's grace to us and our grace expressed to each other.

PRAYER:
Shepherd of my soul, thank you for making me part of your
family. Thank you for the wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ
who have blessed my life over the years. Thank you for their
support and encouragement. Please use me to bless others in your
family as these precious people have blessed and honored me. In the
name of Jesus, your Son and my older brother, I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 12, 2011
VERSE:
[Joshua said] "You are to help your brothers until the LORD
gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have
taken possession of the land that the LORD your God is giving them.
After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses
the servant of the LORD gave you east of the Jordan toward the
sunrise."
-- Joshua 1:14-15

THOUGHT:
I find it so easy to think of my needs and my safety first. I
don't want to be selfish, but when it comes to making decisions
about the investment of my time, it's so easy for me to see things
only from MY perspective. But with God's people, it's a "we" and
"us" perspective that is important, not a "me" and "mine"
perspective. The Eastern tribes of Israel had reached their
Promised Land. But they were not to quit the fight and settle there
until all God's people were safely in their homeland. The same is
true for us in God's Kingdom today. We are to look not only to our
needs, but also to those of our brothers and sisters in Christ. In
fact, Paul three times said that Jesus' followers should consider
the needs of others above our own needs (Rom. 12:10; 1 Corinthians
10:24; Philippians 2:3).

PRAYER:
Loving Father, please give me a gracious and generous heart so
that I might better demonstrate your love to a struggling brother
or sister in Christ today, and also at every opportunity that you
give me throughout my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

January 11, 2011
VERSE:
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has
any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself
through love.
-- Galatians 5:6

THOUGHT:
What matters most? Priorities must be valued disciplines in our
everyday lives if we are to be successful and productive. This is
equally true in our discipleship. We should want to concentrate on
what is key, essential, and most important. Paul reminds us what is
essential: Faith showing itself in loving actions. Faith that does
not show itself in loving and helpful action is dead (James 2).
Jesus wants our faith to express itself in vibrant and loving
service.

PRAYER:
Almighty God, please forgive me for the times I have lost sight
of what is essential and focused on what is peripheral. Please
forgive me for the times when my own interests and concerns were
more important to me than loving service to others. Please give me
eyes to see the people you would have me serve today, and each day,
so that others may know of Jesus' love through my actions and
words. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

January 10, 2011
VERSE:
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and
ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.
-- 2 Corinthians 4:5

THOUGHT:
Our message is not ourselves. Jesus is Lord. One day all of
creation will acknowledge and praise him. But for the people around
us to praise Jesus today, they need to see him alive in us. We
serve others in Jesus' name. We are his body -- his hands of
compassion, his heart of mercy, and his voice of tenderness. So
let's lift up Jesus -- not just by telling others about him, but
serving others as his presence in the world.

PRAYER:
God of grace, thank you for the privilege of sharing your love
with others. Thank you for saving me FROM my sin. Thank you for
saving me FOR service to bless others for Jesus' sake. In the name
of Jesus, my Savior, I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. ... Blessed
are all who take refuge in him.
-- Psalm 2:11-12

THOUGHT:
The LORD is God. We must not take for granted his holiness and
might. But the incredible reality of God's grace is this: God, who
thundered at Mount Sinai and spoke into existence the universe with
its marvelous expanse, loves us and longs for us to draw near and
find refuge in him. We can rejoice in reverent awe. We can praise
with holy fear. We can rest secured because our trust is not in
what is human, what is temporary, and what is vulnerable. The LORD
is our God!

PRAYER:
Forgive me, Father, for the times that I have cheapened your
grace with inappropriate speech and irresponsible behavior. You are
God alone. You alone are worthy of praise. Thank you not only for
being holy and mighty, but also for being near and providing me a
place of refuge and protection. Thank you, dear Father, for being

VERSE:
The LORD your God did to the Jordan just what he had done to the
Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. He
did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the
hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the
LORD your God.
-- Joshua 4:24

THOUGHT:
God demonstrates his love to us because he is loving. God
demonstrates his love to us because he knows we would be lost
without it. God demonstrates his love to us because he wants to
show his power to the peoples of the world. God demonstrates his
love for us because he wants us to know his awesome might to save.
God demonstrates his love for us so we will deeply respect, honor,
and revere him.
PRAYER:
Holy and Almighty God, I praise you for your majesty and might.
I praise you for your love and your grace. I praise you with my
heart full of thanks. I praise you with my head bowed low in
reverence, to honor and glorify you, the only true and living God.
May honor and glory and praise be yours in my heart and in my life
as long as I live on this earth. In Jesus' name. Amen.
