Holy Currencies - Truth

November 20th through November 25th

 

Destination:  To gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a deeply committed follower of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.  To be able to recognize your experiences of God and to discover God in new and different ways.

 

Memory verse:  I encourage you to read this Scripture every day and by the end of the week have it memorized or to the point of where you can paraphrase the verse(s).  Try writing it down on post-it notes and place them in areas where you will see it daily, for example, the bathroom mirror or the dashboard of your car.

 

You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you speak correctly, because I am. If I, your Lord and teacher, have washed your feet, you too must wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example: Just as I have done, you also must do. I assure you, servants aren’t greater than their master, nor are those who are sent greater than the one who sent them. Since you know these things, you will be happy if you do them. John 13:13-17 CEB

 

Daily Prayer: Jesus, we thank You that You washed us in baptism and made us clean. Thank You for giving up Your life and serving us, so we can have true life. Help us use our life to serve You and serve other people. We pray in Your name. Amen.

 

Monday, Nov 20, 2017 read John 13:1 - 20. Jesus was and is the ultimate servant. In this passage, Jesus is modeling the attitude of a servant to His disciples. Washing the feet of guests was the job of a servant. The disciples had missed this important detail in preparing for the meal. None of them thought to step in and do it for themselves and so Jesus models for them and us the humble act of servanthood. Jesus wrapped a towel around His waist as the lowliest servant in the household would have done and washed and dried the disciples’ feet. Imagine Jesus wrapped in a servants towel, bending over a bowl of water and washing the dirt off your feet. Then looking up into your eyes. What do you feel? How are you being a servant of Jesus Christ?



Tuesday, Nov 21, 2017 read John 13:12 - 15. Jesus did not wash His disciples’ feet just so they would have clean feet for dinner. Jesus washed His disciples’ feet as a way of extending His mission into the world. Jesus was modeling for them the act of servanthood so that the disciples then, and us today, would move in the world serving God and each other. How are you God’s servant in St. Paul’s and in the world?

 

Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017 read 1 Corinthians 4:1. Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.” This verse reminds us of the truth of what it means to be a disciple. We are servants of Christ and we are entrusted with the mysteries of God. Read that again and allow that truth to settle into your mind, heart, and soul. A servant is one who does what their master tells them to do. As a servant disciple, we are to do what God tells us to do through the Scriptures and through the continual revealing of truth through the Holy Spirit.

 

Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 read 1 Chronicles 16:34. Give thanks to God today. Have conversations with your family today about what they give thanks to God for.

 

Friday, Nov. 24, 2017 read Revelation 22:13. The spirit of truth…the spirit of emet, calls us to attempt to understand multiple points of view. One of the lessons we receive from God through Jesus is to love our enemies—a radical demand of the spirit of truth.  I don’t know my enemies truth unless I am willing to see the conflict from “my enemies” point of view.  Not an easy thing to do, nor can I always get there.  I am challenged to see the world from God’s perspective, not just my own.  God loves me.  God also loves those whom I consider my enemy.  Now, what do I do?

 

Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017 Read 1 Corinthians 15:58. Paul says that because of the resurrection nothing we do for the Lord is wasted. Sometimes we hesitate to sacrifice our time for God because the results are not immediate. If you give God your time, he multiplies it. If you give him your money or energy, he multiplies those, too. As I’ve mentioned here before, it’s like planting seeds. Farmers know that seeds must be sacrificed by being buried in the ground; they must be given away to do any good. Review your servant opportunities and pledge cards that you were given in worship. How will you give of yourself to God this next year?
