DAY 18

Saturday  -  March  21, 2020

 

INCREASE

 

And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you,

asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will

in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,  

so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord,

fully pleasing to him,

bearing fruit in every good work

and increasing in the knowledge of God.

Colossians 1:9-10 (ESV)

 

Paul’s prayer is for you and me.   Never stop praying for increase.   Not just increase of people in the church, but for the people of the church to increase in our ability to serve and please God and to be productive and fruitful for the Kingdom of God.

Increasing in the knowledge of God is a direct result of DRAWING NEAR and COMING to Jesus.    As this increases all the other things will increase and grow.

 

We have to ask the question,  How well are you walking in a manner that is worthy of the Lord and pleasing Him?

 

Also we must ask, How much fruit are we bearing?    We will look at this fruit tomorrow.

 

We must also ask,   How well are you DRAWING NEAR to God or increasing in your knowledge of God?

 

Write your thoughts or a prayer.

 

Please pray for your church family to grow in our desire and efforts to please God and being fruitful.

 

Please pray for the outreach event.

 

Write down one thing  for which you are grateful.
