As you begin this week we ask that you meditate on the following scriptures and how they apply to your life and your growing relationship with the Lord.
Father, we ask that you help us understand your word through guidance of the Holy Spirit, and open our hearts and minds so that we may incorporate your guidance and will into our lives for your glory.
“Keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord” (Romans 12:11)
“Religion that God our father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to Keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (James 1:27)
“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men” (Ephesians 6:7)
“Acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever” (Colossians 3:23-24)
