Yesterday's checkbox stats...
30 day commitment to pray with two days left! Here’s the stats for yesterday, day 28: we had 13 people check the box out of 76 people committed.
Pray with Nate Stephan...
Developing a discipline of paying attention to God throughout our day is a critical part of growing in our passion for God. It’s definitely worth it too. I think my life has benefitted greatly by this 30 Day Commitment. When I have my time reading God’s Word, this “paying attention to God” thought keeps things in perspective.
Sunday I shared a Scripture verse during service that I want to share again.
Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith. I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!
Philippians 3:8-11 (NLT)
It hits me hard when I think about these verses and my life. Do I really count everything else as worthless when I compare it to the value of knowing Christ? Is becoming one with Christ so high on my priority list that by comparison everything else I prioritize is considered garbage?
Let’s pray about this today. Let’s ask God to help us make our relationship with Him the highest priority in our lives and then do something about it. Rearrange your priorities to make knowing Christ the highest priority of the day.
