Memorise: I am the Good Shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. John 10:11
Read: Genesis 22:6-9 (KJV)
Bible In One Year: Isaiah 24-26, Ephesians 4
Are you outstanding in prayer? When negative situations challenge any member of your family or even your friends, do you go into the place of prayer on their behalf? Do you ever even feel the need to pray for them?
Jesus Christ was outstanding in prayers. He took prayer to the limits. Most of the times He prayed, He did so alone. He separated Himself from the crowd just to pray. How often do you take out time to seriously pray? How often do you pray for other people? Do you know that praying for other people releases a new level of blessings to you? When Job prayed for his friends in Job 42:10, he was able to access a brand new level of blessings. Some blessings are attached to the prayers you pray for your friends.
Action Point: Intercede for you family members and friends throughout today.
1. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing through you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?
Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.
2. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying
The Savior who does on the cross
3. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it a daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the word of salvation
To those who are dying in sin?
4. We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.
