TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 18, 2012

VERSE:
"But will God really dwell on earth with men? The heavens, even
the highest heavens, cannot contain you. How much less this temple
I have built!"
-- 2 Chronicles 6:18


THOUGHT:
As Solomon dedicated the Temple, he realized that this
tremendous accomplishment of great beauty was far too insignificant
and small to house the Creator of the Universe. But, God did choose
to dwell with mortals. That is what the life of Jesus is about
(John 1:11-18). God is awesome and beyond description, far too holy
to be expected to associate with flawed human beings. As God,
however, he has chosen to love us and come and live with us so we
can return to him and share in his glory.


PRAYER:
Almighty God and Sovereign Father, you are more magnificent than
my words can describe and more gracious than my heart can fully
grasp. Thank you for your glory that is beyond human comprehension
and your grace that bridges the awesome distance between us. Thank
you, dear Father, for being God. In Jesus' name I praise. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 17, 2012

VERSE:
But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin,
you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were
entrusted.
-- Romans 6:17

THOUGHT:
Paul stresses in Romans 6 that obedience to the will of God does
not mean we are being manipulated or put under a bunch of arbitrary
rules or formal laws. No, obedience of our grace-filled God is
liberation -- liberation from the bondage of sin and the certainty
of death, liberation from the haunting memories of sin and its
effects, as well as liberation to be the people we were created to
be!

PRAYER:
Heavenly Father, my head understands that being obedient to your
will is a blessing and not a restriction. I know you have given me
your truth to protect and save me. Forgive me for sometimes
doubting and looking elsewhere for the joy and delight that only
you provide. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 16, 2012

VERSE:
... what counts is a new creation. Peace and mercy to all who
follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.
-- Galatians 6:16

THOUGHT:
Paul ends his breathtaking letter to Galatians with this
incredible reminder: both Jews and Gentiles who are justified by
faith in Jesus Christ are God's people, his Israel. Like Abraham
who left on a long journey trusting in God's promise, so also all
who are spiritual Israel follow God's lead and cling to God's
promise through faith in Jesus Christ. Like those who were
delivered in the Exodus by the power of God and with the sprinkled
blood of the Passover lamb, God's people today have been
blood-bought and delivered from their bondage to sin and death.
Here there is neither Jew nor Gentile, slave nor free, male nor
female, because in Israel, we are God's people and the recipients
of his mercy and his peace.

PRAYER:
El Shaddai, LORD of the Covenant, thank you for our great
Patriarchs of faith who kept the faith and trusted in your Promise.
Thank you for fulfilling your Promise in Jesus. Thank you for
blessing me and including me as one of your children. Now may we,
your people, bring you praise, in the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 15, 2012
VERSE:
But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not
forgive your sins.
-- Matthew 6:15

THOUGHT:
Can you think of a more frightening thought than God not
forgiving our sins? We know how much he paid so our sins could be
forgiven! We know how much he loves us! We know how much he wants
us to be in relationship with him! So why would he withhold his
forgiveness? Because we demonstrate that we have not received it or
do not understand it! God is gracious and he will not accept those
who are not gracious!

PRAYER:
Holy God, there are those that I do find it difficult to
forgive. Please, right now while I'm praying, soften my heart by
your Spirit, cleanse my soul of any bitterness or resentment, and
please empower me to let go of the pain of the past and forgive. I
thank you for this grace to not only be forgiven, but to also
forgive. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 14, 2012

VERSE:
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the
world.
-- Galatians 6:14

THOUGHT:
Do you have a basis for pride? What is your source of that
pride? Paul reminds us that our one, true, and dependable source of
boasting is boasting in what the Lord has done for us on the Cross.
This one source of boasting has absolutely nothing to do with
anything that we have done, attained, or accomplished on our own.
All other reasons to boast are fleeting glimpses at hollow fame
compared to the joy and assurance of sharing in Jesus' life, death,
and resurrection.

PRAYER:
Forgive me, O Abba Father, for the times I have thought myself
important because of some transitory accomplishment. Thank you for
giving me a bedrock source of boasting in Jesus' love and grace
demonstrated in the Cross. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.

June 13, 2012
VERSE:
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of
evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you
have done everything, to stand.
-- Ephesians 6:13

THOUGHT:
Since we are in a spiritual war, we must put on spiritual armor.
More than saying our daily prayers and perfunctorily reading our
daily Scriptures, we must learn to recognize the spiritual armor
God has given us for our spiritual protection and prepare ourselves
for spiritual warfare. We should approach each day, each task, each
Scripture, with a sense of urgency because we know we are at war.
The day of evil will come, so let's be ready to take our stand
using the tools God has supplied and the power he provides.

PRAYER:
Dear Father in Heaven, please empower me by your Holy Spirit,
please make me bold because of your heavenly calling for me, and
please inspire me to be spiritually courageous because of the
example of Jesus. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 11, 2012
VERSE:
In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God
in Christ Jesus.
-- Romans 6:11
THOUGHT:
Just as Jesus died to sin, we also died to sin. But, simply
putting aside sin isn't going to keep sin away from us. We must
embrace Jesus' new life for us every day, with our hearts open to
the Lord's exciting will for us. Let's let what is dead remain
buried and in the past. Let's live passionately for God with our
eyes focused on Jesus and his future for us.

PRAYER:
Sovereign Lord and Loving Father, I want the past life of sin to
remain buried and dead. Please empower me to vibrant life that is
full of your Spirit and always open to your leading. Please make
your presence and your will plain to me. In Jesus' name I ask it.
Amen.
TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 10, 2012
VERSE:
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people,
especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
-- Galatians 6:10

THOUGHT:
We are to be a people who do good deeds. That's a very
significant part of who we are as Jesus' followers. So let's look
for the many opportunities that God places in our paths to bless
others. Let's use all of these blessings to bring God glory!

PRAYER:
Almighty LORD, please give me the eyes to see and the heart to
be touched by those around me who need to see your goodness and
grace through my compassion and concern. In Jesus' name I pray.
Amen.

June 9, 2012
VERSE:
People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and
into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and
destruction.-- 1 Timothy 6:9

THOUGHT:
This is not a message for folks who are financially rich. No,
this is for all of us who want to have that wealth. Craving it,
coveting it, and going in pursuit of earthly wealth expose us to
grave danger. Let's be reminded of Jesus' words: "Seek first God's
Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be added
unto you."

PRAYER:
Thank you, dear Father, for your many blessings. Please help me
to be satisfied and generous with the blessings you have already
given me. Please help me keep my focus on you and your Son! In the
name of your Son and my Savior, Jesus, I pray. Amen.

June 8, 2012
VERSE:
But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
-- Genesis 6:8

THOUGHT:
Reminds me of what God told Jesus at his baptism -- "... in you
I am well pleased!" Even in the middle of a culture steeped in sin
in Noah's time, God could find the one heart loyal to him and use
him and his family to be a blessing and provide the world a future.
May we each be such a person in our day, in our job, in our school,
in our neighborhood. Can you imagine the difference it would
ultimately make if each of us decided to be a Noah?

PRAYER:
Loving Shepherd and Holy God, please bless me as I seek to
passionately live a life that pleases you and brings you joy.
Please use me and my church family to make a difference in the
world. In the name of the Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.
TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 7, 2012

VERSE:
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he
sows.
-- Galatians 6:7
THOUGHT:
We're not going to fool God. While we might put up a facade for
others, God knows our hearts. So, if we spend our wealth, time, and
interest in other things and give God the crumbs, we need to know
that we are not going to reap a bounteous spiritual harvest.

PRAYER:
O LORD God Almighty, who sees all things and knows all hearts,
please give me wisdom to see the important things I need to invest
myself in, and help me see those things I must avoid because of
their entanglements. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 6, 2012

VERSE:
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to
your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done
in secret, will reward you.
-- Matthew 6:6


THOUGHT:
Prayer is an incredible invitation from God to share with him
what is on our hearts. Even when we don't have words to say, he
helps us through his Spirit in those moments. This incredibly
intimate conversation, sustained by the very precious Spirit of God
within us, must never be debased by crass showmanship or pride.
Prayer is not done to prove our piety, but to deepen our
relationship with Almighty God!


PRAYER:
Abba Father, thank you so much for the incredible gift of
prayer. Thank you for listening to both my words and my heart.
Thank you for being near and not far off. Forgive me when I don't
call upon you as often as I should, or when I take your gracious
listening ear for granted. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will
certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.
-- Romans 6:5


THOUGHT:
So, here's the great news: if we have died with Christ, we've
already died the only death that really matters. Our lives are
joined with his and so we will share in his glory when he returns
(Colossians 3:1-4). Even death cannot separate us from his presence
in our lives (Romans 8:35-39) because we have been given the
victory over death through Christ Jesus our Lord (1 Corinthians
15:55-57). We do not have to fear the second death (Revelation
2:11; 20:6) because we have already passed over from death into
life (John 5:24).

PRAYER:
Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God -
through Jesus Christ our Lord! Amen. (Romans 7:24-25)

June 4, 2012
VERSE:
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up
in the training and instruction of the Lord.
-- Ephesians 6:4


THOUGHT:
Malachi 4:6 promised that fathers and children would be reunited
in heart. Let's make that true in our homes by nurturing and
correcting our children -- with a balance between nurture and
correction. Let's not make our faith so full of rules and
restrictions that it becomes impossible for our children to hear
that they are our beloved children, with whom we are very pleased!
Let's not grant so much freedom that our children feel neglected
and uncertain. Let's turn our hearts toward them and pray for God
to turn their hearts toward their home with us and their home with
you!


PRAYER:
O Lord God Almighty, Abba Father, our land lies under a curse
because so many Fathers have spiritually and physically abandoned
their children. Please raise up parents, especially fathers, who
will balance the challenging tasks of love, nurture, and correction
so that our land may be healed and our children may know your love
and grace. In Jesus name. Amen.


TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
June 3, 2012
VERSE:
Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ
Jesus were baptized into his death?
-- Romans 6:3


THOUGHT:
More than an outward symbol, baptism is coming to the core of
the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) and sharing in it by grace
(Romans 6:1-15). What an incredible blessing to be able to do what
Jesus did at the beginning of his ministry to please God (Luke
3:21-22), and also know that through our faith in God's power to
raise him from the dead, our lives can be joined with his until we
can share fully in his glory! (Colossians 2:12; 3:1-4).


PRAYER:
Loving Father, thank you for your grace. Thank you for raising
Jesus from death. Thank you for letting me share in that
resurrection through faith. Thank you for the assurance I have of
sharing in his glory. Thank you for letting me be your beloved
child, with whom you are well pleased. Thank you in Jesus' name.
Amen.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
He who gives a coin to a poor man is rewarded with six blessings. But,
he who encourages him with friendly words is rewarded with eleven.

June 2, 2012

VERSE:
Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the
law of Christ.
-- Galatians 6:2


THOUGHT:
"I didn't know Jesus had a law!" Well, he doesn't have a written
one like we find in the Old Testament (2 Corinthians 3). No, his is
Spirit-imprinted on our hearts and transforms our character. This
law gives us liberty from written law (James 2:12-17) and
emphasizes the undergirding principle that guided Jesus' life --
sacrifice and service for others (Philippians 2:5-11). Far more
than a written law, this is a passion for Christ and a commitment
to be like him.


PRAYER:
Almighty and compassionate Father, may Jesus' passion of helping
others be my passion so that others may see your love and grace
through my life and glorify you! In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

June 1, 2012

VERSE:
"Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men,
to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your
Father in heaven."
-- Matthew 6:1


THOUGHT:
Compassion is not for personal glory, just as it is not a
private internal emotion. Christian compassion must always motivate
us to act in the best interest and for the greater good of those in
need, without calling attention to ourselves or our sacrifices. God
provides what we need to bless others and takes care of the reward
when our goal is to please him and to be used by him to bless
others who are in need.


PRAYER:
Loving God and tender Shepherd, use me each day to be a blessing
to someone in need. Please open my eyes and ears to see those
around me who need emotional support or financial help. Please give
me the courage to bless them and lead them closer to you. In Jesus'
name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
Jesus answered them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor,
but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to
repentance."
-- Luke 5:31-32


THOUGHT:
Jesus was often criticized for deliberately associating with
people who were suspect in the eyes of the "religious." There was a
reason for his behavior. He wasn't doing this to be popular, weird,
bizarre, or hip. Jesus came to redeem the enslaved, find the lost,
mend the broken, and reclaim the sinner. Can Jesus' bodily presence
strive for anything less than this today, and still call herself
Jesus' Church?


PRAYER:
Forgive me, Father, when I opt for security in my acquaintances
and I avoid potentially messy entanglements in my relationships.
Please open my eyes to see the needy all around me. Please use me
to lead them to your grace and to help them find family with your
people. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has
already committed adultery with her in his heart.
-- Matthew 5:28

THOUGHT:
Living in a sexually supercharged world and facing the
prevalence of pornography on the Internet and in today's media, how
are you doing with this issue?

PRAYER:
Loving Father, give me the strength to resist sexual temptation,
the wisdom to stay away from it, and character to triumph over it.
In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
VERSE:
Peter and the other apostles replied: "We must obey God rather
than men!"
-- Acts 5:29
THOUGHT:
Against a stern warning from the ruling council in Jerusalem,
called the Sanhedrin, Peter and the other apostles proclaimed Jesus
as Lord. They knew that Jesus had triumphed over the attempts of
his enemies to extinguish him and his ministry. The apostles
blatantly disobeyed the orders of the very same people who had
Jesus crucified. By any standard, that is faithful courage. How are
you doing in the "standing up for Jesus" battle?

PRAYER:
Lord God Almighty, please empower me by your Spirit to be
courageous. I do not want to ever back down from my convictions nor
ever renounce my faith in Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector by the name
of Levi sitting at his tax booth. "Follow me," Jesus said to him,
and Levi got up, left everything and followed him.
-- Luke 5:27


THOUGHT:
After capturing the hearts of the crowd, Jesus now calls another
disciple, Levi (Matthew). Two things are significant about this
calling. First, Jesus called someone no other religious leader
would have chosen, a tax collector and Roman sympathizer -- to any
Jew of Jesus' era, Matthew would have seemed very much like a
traitor to his heritage and to his faith. Second, the tax collector
followed, leaving behind his livelihood and his fortune. This is a
powerful reminder that there is no one we should write off as
unreachable with the Gospel and as unusable by our Lord.


PRAYER:
Father of all nations, help me recognize the people you place in
my path today who are ready to know more about Jesus. Give me the
wisdom and the awareness to know when and how to speak with them
about my Savior. In Jesus' name. Amen.

VERSE:
Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled
with awe and said, "We have seen remarkable things today."
-- Luke 5:26


THOUGHT:
Jesus forgave a man who was lame, then showed he had authority
to forgive by healing him. As exciting and important as this
healing was, the most important thing was the reaction of those who
witnessed it; they praised God out of a sense of amazed awe. They
recognized that Jesus had come to minister as God's very presence.
When we understand who Jesus is and what he has done for us and
will continue to do for us, we do the same thing today -- we offer
our praises with a sense of amazement and awe.


PRAYER:
Almighty God and Heavenly Father, I glorify your name and thank
you for your grace which you so lavishly poured out on me through
your Son and my Savior, Jesus, in whose name I offer this praise.
Amen.

VERSE:
I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the
dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will
live.
-- John 5:25


THOUGHT:
Aren't you glad that not even death can stop us from hearing
Jesus' promised words to us: "RISE!"? We will hear his voice and
live with him forever. That sure puts a lift in my future plans;
what about you?


PRAYER:
Thank you, Almighty God, that Jesus' resurrection demonstrated
your power to destroy death. I have confidence in your Son's
promises to return, to raise me from the dead if I die before his
return, and to take me home to be with you. In the Savior's name.
Amen.

May 24, 2012

VERSE:
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful
nature with its passions and desires.
-- Galatians 5:24


THOUGHT:
When we became Christians, we died to the old person of sin and
were raised up a new person. While we have many of the same battles
with temptation, we also now have the power of the resurrection and
the Holy Spirit at work within us to help us.


PRAYER:
Righteous Father, help me keep the dead and cast-away sin of my
past far away from my heart and out of my life. May my life be a
holy sacrifice that is pleasing to you. In the name of my Savior,
Jesus, I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
May 23, 2012

VERSE:
May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and
through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at
the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:23


THOUGHT:
We know that true righteousness and holiness are qualities
possessed perfectly by only God. Amazingly, God uses his Spirit to
make those qualities a growing reality in our lives when we will
yield to his leadership. Yesterday, we committed to let the Spirit
work on maturing us in our weakest areas. Let's take an extra five
or ten minutes sometime today, open God's Word, and read several
passages of Scripture that apply to our specific vulnerabilities.
Then, let's ask God's Spirit to transform us in these areas to be
more like Christ!


PRAYER:
Dear Father, may Jesus come soon with grace and glory! May I be
found blameless on that day, dear Father, not by my power and
effort, but because of your transforming power at work within me.
In Jesus' name I ask this. Amen.

May 22, 2012

VERSE:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Against such things there is no law.
-- Galatians 5:22-23

THOUGHT:
Where the Holy Spirit lives, human character is changed and
spiritual fruit can be seen. Certainly this maturity isn't found
overnight! It is, however, noticeable over the long haul of life.
What fruit is the Spirit bearing in your life? In what ways have
you matured? In what areas do you want the Spirit to exercise
greater control? Why not take a moment and consciously yield those
areas in which you struggle to him now, as you pray?

PRAYER:
Almighty and ever-present Father, thank you for empowering
positive changes in my life as I seek to be more like Jesus. Please
bring to full maturity the fruit the Holy Spirit is growing in my
life. You know very well that I continue to struggle with __ in my
life. I intentionally turn over that part of my life to your Spirit
to redeem and fully sanctify. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we
might become the righteousness of God.
-- 2 Corinthians 5:21

THOUGHT:
Jesus was perfect, spotless, holy, righteous, and clean. Yet he
became what he hated, sin. Why would he do such a thing? Because he
loved us and wanted us to be what he is today, the righteousness of
God.

PRAYER:
Almighty and loving Father, thank you for making me holy -- your
righteousness -- by the sacrifice of Jesus. Thank you, dear Savior,
for paying such a horrible price, not just by dying on the cross,
but also by becoming my sin and carrying away my guilt. All praise
to you, dear Father, for your plan, and thanks and glory to you,
dear Jesus, for your loving sacrifice. Amen.

VERSE:
[R]emember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his
way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
-- James 5:20


THOUGHT:
When someone wanders from the path of God, let's not take that
rebellion frivolously. God has given us the tremendous blessing of
carrying on the work of our Savior, who came to seek and save the
lost!
PRAYER:
Be with those I love who are in rebellion against you, dear
Father. Use me to be your agent of restoration. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.

May 18, 2012

VERSE:
Some men came carrying a paralytic on a mat and tried to take
him into the house to lay him before Jesus.
-- Luke 5:18


THOUGHT:
What is the fullest definition of a friend? The Bible offers us
numerous definitions and examples. One of my favorite examples is
this story of the paralyzed man whose friends went to great
extremes to get him to Jesus. Their faith and their effort to get
him to Jesus are the things that ultimately result in the man's
forgiveness and healing. I don't know about you, but that's the
kind of friend I want to be!

PRAYER:
Holy Father, please bless me as I try to lead ___ (put the name
of several non-Christian friends here) to forgiveness and healing
in Jesus. Give me the tenacity and tact to do this with gentleness
and respect without losing my sense of urgency to see them become
Christians. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old
has gone, the new has come!
-- 2 Corinthians 5:17


THOUGHT:
"New and Improved!" That should be stamped across the forehead
of every Christian! When we come to Christ, he makes us new and he
cleanses us of all our sins. Incredibly, this grace can be "new
every morning" because of God's faithfulness and transforming
power. God's grace and power are given to us through his Holy
Spirit. We are new and improved, and will continue to be that way
until we are completely transformed to be like Jesus! (See 2
Corinthians 3:18)


PRAYER:
Holy Father, have your way with my heart, my will, my life, and
my time. I want to yield myself to you so that you can make me new
and improved. I don't want to be satisfied with where you have
brought me. No, dear Father, I want to become more like Jesus
today, and each day of my life that follows. Thank you for your
empowering grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may
see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
-- Matthew 5:16


THOUGHT:
As Christians, we are not called to isolate ourselves from
culture. We are not called to be hermits or monks. Instead, we are
to recognize that we are in a world of darkness and live as light
-- not as little candles tucked away in some inner bedroom, but as
candles set on their stands so all can see their light or cities on
a hill that can't be hidden. Of course, our goal is not to call
attention to ourselves, but to help others see the glorious grace
of our Father.


PRAYER:
Dear Heavenly Father, may my life bless others today, and
everyday, so they can see you and your love more clearly. In Jesus'
name I pray. Amen.
