2 Corinthians 4:1
Paul says “losing heart” is a distinct danger for the Christian – the Christian leader even. But he gives us a great reason in this verse to keep going: we have been given a new covenant ministry. This ministry (according to chapters 3 and 4) opens blind eyes, reveals the very light of God, liberates people and transforms them eternally. Don’t lose heart – God is doing something extraordinary through your ordinary words of witness.
PRAY for encouragement to persevere in gospel outreach – God is at work even through our most feeble efforts.
1 Timothy 6:6-10
We tend to think of wealth as security – a safety net. The Bible thinks of it as a trap. Instead it teaches us to find security in the rock solid identity of Christ rather than the shifting sands of Mammon. Given that we can’t take it with us…
PRAY for God’s wisdom about how to use the money He’s blessed us with.
