Your Servant

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Be - Matthew 23:11-12 - Your Servant - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Be – Matthew 23:11-12 – Your Servant – Growing As Disciples

The greatest among you will be your servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matthew 23:11-12 (NIV)

Serving 

Have you humbled yourself? Have your set aside your privileges and expectations. Have you let go of your rights? Have you given up on your demands? How do you regard yourself? Have you thought of yourself as being better and more important than others? Have you exalted yourself and all your wants and needs and desires above anyone, above all else? Those are tough questions. Why is that? I cannot give myself a passing grade on any of your questions. I have been filled with pride. I have carried my rights, privileges, expectations and demands around with me like a set of well-worn luggage. That’s a heavy load to carry. Yes, it is. Worse than that, I have thought of myself as being better and more important than others. I have wanted all my wants and needs and desires to be met while I have barely thought of the wants and needs and desires of those around me. That’s not good. It is more than not good, it is pathetic. Yes, it is. 

What has happened to you as a result of your pride? That’s a good question. A prideful, self-centered, self-exalting, self-indulgent life is not sustainable. A prideful life coming to a humbling crash is as predictable as gravity bringing a heavy object back down to earth. You have been humbled? You have been brought back down to earth? Yes, I have experienced the error of my ways. I have suffered for my sinful pride. I have been brought far lower than I have ever exalted myself. Are you sure? No, I’m not sure. That’s good. 

There is one thing of which I am sure. What’s that? I no longer want to live a prideful, self-centered, self-exalting, self-indulgent life. There is no joy in that. This is not the life that you have called me to live. No, it is not. You have given me an example to follow. You humbled yourself. You gave up all your rights and privileges, demands and expectations. Yes, I did. You considered others as better than yourself. You did not think about all your wants and needs and desires. No, I did not. You came into this world to give of yourself. You held nothing back. You kept nothing in reserve. You joyfully laid down your life to serve others. You fulfilled the purpose and plan that your Heavenly Father had for your life. Yes, I did. You never retreated from your call. You had no regrets for how you lived your life. No, I did not. That is what I want. I want to follow your example. I want to do what you did. I want to love like you loved, give like you gave and serve like you served. I will humble myself. I will listen for your call. I will humbly go and do all that you ask of me. I will live my serving others. That will be every good.

Lord, I have been proud. I have thought of myself as being more important than others. I have put myself first. I have exalted myself and all my wants, needs and desires. Forgive me. Help me to follow your example. I will humble myself so I can serve others. Amen

Submit Yourselves

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Therefore - James 4:7-10 - Submit Yourself- Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Therefore – James 4:7-10 – Submit Yourself- Growing As Disciples

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. James 4:7-10 (ESV)

Drawing Near

I know that I am a sinner. I have sinned against you in my thoughts, words, and deeds. I have done what I shouldn’t have done. I have left undone what I should have done. My heart has not been pure. I have had a double mind. My behavior has been wretched. I take my own sinfulness seriously. This is no laughing matter. I am deeply sorry that I have sinned against you in so many ways. With a humble heart, I am bowing down before. I am admitting my sin to you. That’s good.

I am so thankful that you have made it so I can turn away from my sin to follow you. You got my attention. You turned my life around. You helped me to see the error of my ways. You gave me a desire to know you. You gave me a hunger to seek you. Now, I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. Now, I want what you want. Now, I want to live my life completely for you. That’s very good.

I am holding on to your promises. I am drawing near to you. I know that you will draw near to me. There is no exception clause. No there is not. I can count on you drawing near to me as I draw near to you. Yes, you can. I will never leave you or forsake you. You may not always feel my closeness. You may not also realize that I am with you. But, you can hold on to me because I will be holding on to you. You are my child. I am your Heavenly Father.

I am counting on you. I am trusting in you. I know that I cannot live a life that pleases you without your power and strength. No, you cannot. As I draw near to you and you draw near to me I will be resisting the devil and all the evil he will try to throw at me. I will allow your word to dwell in me richly. I know that your word will help me to think your thoughts and do your will. Yes, it will. I know that your word will change my heart and transform my mind. Yes, it will. I know that your word will push evil thoughts out of my heart and mind and life. Yes, it will. You will cleanse me with your word. Yes, I will. Your word will make me able to live and walk in ways that please you. Your word will make me able to stand against every evil and temptation. I will trust in you and all that you have to say to me as I draw near to you. That will be very good.

Lord, I am drawing near to you. I am humbling myself before you. I am turning away from evil and withdrawing from sin. I am submitting myself to you. Cleanse and heal me. I will walk in your ways. Use your word to push evil out of my heart and mind. Amen

Put On Love

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Love - Colossians 3:12-14 - Put On Love - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Love – Colossians 3:12-14 – Put On Love – Growing As Disciples

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:12-14 (NIV)

Unity

This is exactly what I need. What’s that? I need new clothes. I need to put off the dirty, stinky clothes of my old life. I want to live the new life that you have given me to live. I want to put on the new clothes you have given me to wear. Such as? I want to put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. That’s good. I will tell you one thing. What’s that? None of these pieces of new clothes are in my current wardrobe. What do you mean by that? I am not naturally patient. I want not usually gentle. I wouldn’t say that humility is my strong suit. I never been known to be overly kind and compassionate. I say all this to you with great regret. It’s not too late. You can put off your old clothes and put on the new clothes that I have made for you to wear. I would like that. That’s good.

You do know that you will need my help to put on the new clothes that I have given you to wear? Of that, I am certain. Why is that? I need to know how to be patient and gentle when I am in a disagreement. I need to be humble enough to consider others thoughts and opinions as being just as valid as mine. I’m not always right. I don’t know it all. I can learn more from others by intently listening to them rather than strongly debating them. That’s true. How about kindness and compassion, how are you doing on those counts? Not well. In every way, I need your help. I don’t little a little help here and there. I need a major makeover. The old stinky clothes of my old life no longer suit me. I want you to fit me with the clothes of the new life I have in you. Is that your prayer? Yes, that is my prayer. That is my hope. That is my desire. Do your work in me. Make me new. Help me to live the new life that you are calling me to live. Why are you so fervent in your prayer? Why is your desire so strong? I know I will not be able to be a witness in the world if I do not put on the new clothes you have given me to wear.  I know that I will not be able to live in unity with others if I have not put on the new clothes you have given me to wear. That’s true. That’s right. I will hear and answer your prayer. Thank you, Lord.

Lord, I will take off the dirty and stinky clothes of my old life. I want to live the new and fresh and clean life You have called me to live. I will live as one of your chosen people. Help me to put on your love so I will be able to fully live in complete unity with others.  Amen.

Friendship With The World

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - God's Will - James 4-4-6 - Friendship With The World - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – God’s Will – James 4-4-6 – Friendship With The World – Growing As Disciples

You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:4-6 (NIV)

Path Of Life

At one time, I was in love with the world. My whole life was one long pursuit of all that the world had to offer. I wanted to acquire riches. I wanted to own an abundance of material possessions. I wanted to live in comfort and experience pleasure. No matter how much I secured for myself, I felt empty and unsatisfied in life. Acquiring the next, latest and greatest, thing did not bring me the joy that it had promised. Chasing after the world and that it had to offer, required a lot of pushing and shoving to advance my own interests. In the process, I was left bruised and battered and broken by the life I was living, as I continued to walk on a path that led further and further away from you. That’s not good.

When I couldn’t stand the brokenness and emptiness of my life any longer, I cried out to you. You heard and answered my cry for help. Now, I know that you had been pursuing me, all along, even as I was walking on a path away from you. You wouldn’t let me keep on walking away from you. No, I would not. You turned my life around. You brought me to yourself. You helped me to turn away from the sinful and worldly pursuits of my broken life. You showed me your love by forgiving my sins and cleansing me of all my unrighteousness. You healed my bruised and battered and broken life. You filled me with your Spirit. You gave my life hope and meaning and purpose. You gave me a new direction. You set my life on a new path of loving and following and serving you. Yes, I did. 

Now, I want to live in an intimate relationship with you. I love you because you first loved me. You are drawing near to me as I draw near to you. Yes, I am.  The world and my old life is now behind me. You and my new life are before me. I will go where you guide me. I will do all that you ask of me. It will be my joy to live my life with and for you. That will be very good. 

Do you have something that you would like to ask me? Do you have a question that is on your mind? Yes Lord, I have one request. As I love, follow and serve you, I ask that you keep and guard my heart. Protect me from the allure of the world and all its evil desires. Help me to continue to leave the world and all its evil desires behind me. Keep me humbly walking on the path of life as I follow you.  I have heard and I will answer your prayer. Thank you, Lord. 

Lord, at one time I loved the world and everything in it. I chased after the world and all it had to offer. The world was not what I wanted. I wanted you. Let my love for you, with all my heart and mind and soul and strength, keep me from loving the world. Amen

Called

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Be - 1 John 3:1-3 - Called - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Be – 1 John 3:1-3 – Called – Growing As Disciples

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure. 1 John 3:1-3 (NIV)  

Like Him

You are my child. I sought you out. I chased you down. I have called you by name. I have lavished you with my love. I sent my Son to die on the cross so that you could be forgiven of all your sins and cleansed of all your unrighteous. Though your sins were like scarlet, you have been made new and fresh and clean, as white as snow. When I look at you I don’t see your sin. You are covered by my Son’s righteousness. The distance between us has been bridged. My Son has made it so you can live in a close and intimate relationship with me. My Son has broken the power of sin over your life. He has made it so you can throw off the dirty, stinky clothes of your old life. I am giving you new thoughts to think. You can come to me. You can know my will and walk in my ways. I am using my word to change your heart. Instead of allowing yourself to be conformed to this word, you are allowing my word to transform your mind. My Son has made it so you can now put on the clothes of your new life. I am leading you. I am teaching you. I am training you. You are the work of my hands. You are my masterpiece. Don’t become discouraged at your progress. Don’t grow weary. Never give up. Day-by-day, I will be molding and shaping your life. Day-by-day, I will be making you to be more like my Son. I will keep on working in and through your life until the day that you come to meet me face to face. I will make you able to accomplish my purposes and fulfill my plans. My hand will be on you. I will be blessing your life. Your life will bear an abundance of fruit for my kingdom. Your life will bring glory to my name. Your life will shine brightly for me in the darkness of this world.

How does all this sound to you? It is beyond what I could have hoped for or even imagined. You are my God and Father. You are my Savior and Lord. You are all that I will ever need. I am your child. You are holding on to me as I hold on to you. You are drawing near to me as I draw near to you. Yes, I am. Keep on loving, following and serving me. Yes, I will. 

Heavenly Father, thank you for lavishing your love on me and calling me to be your child. Thank you for making me to be more like your son, Jesus Christ. Keep on changing my heart, transforming my mind and guiding my life until I see you face to face. Amen

Be Still And Know That I Am God

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Guidance - Psalm 46:10 - Be Still And Know That I Am God - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Guidance – Psalm 46:10 – Be Still And Know That I Am God – Growing As Disciples

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 (NIV)

Meeting With You

Do you want to know me? Do you want to live in an intimate relationship with me? Do you want to know my will and walk in my ways? Do you want to go and do what is pleasing in my sight? You know me. You know the desires of my heart. You know the thoughts of my mind. You know the words of my mouth. Nothing about me can be hidden from you. You know me better than I know myself. That’s true. Why is it then, that you are asking me these questions if you already know how I will answer them? You know the answer to that question without asking me. Answering these questions is a way for me to express my worship to you. It is good for me to state my intentions. It is good to remind myself of the desires of my heart, thoughts of my mind and words of my mouth. That’s right.

With all that is within me I want to know you. There is no higher priority in my life than to come to know you. I want to live in an intimate relationship with you because I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I want to follow you to wherever you lead me. I want to do whatever you ask of me. I want to live my life with and for you. It is my joy to do what is pleasing in your sight. In every way, I want my life to be an act of worship of you. I want my life to be a living sacrifice to you. But, it is no sacrifice to serve you fully because I love you completely. Yet, it is my prayer that you will fan the flames of my love of you. I want to burn white hot in my devotion to you. Keep drawing me closer. Keep helping me to walk nearer.

What is helping you to come to know me? What will fan the flames of your love for me? What will cause you to burn white hot in your devotion to me? Coming to you will make me able to know you. Being in your presence will fan the flames of my love for you. Receiving all that you have for me will cause me to burn white hot in my devotion to you. Yes, come to me. Yes, be still before me. Receive all that I have for you. Then you will know me. Then you will have the desire of your heart to live with and for me.

Father, help me to slow down. Change the pace of my life. I don’t want the busyness of life to hinder my coming to you. Meeting with you is the priority of my life. I want to be still before you so that I can know you and your will. Amen

Hearts On Pilgrimage

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Heart - Psalm 84:5 - Hearts On Pilgrimage - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Heart – Psalm 84:5 – Hearts On Pilgrimage – Growing As Disciples

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. Psalm 84:5 (NIV)

My Heart

You have my heart. What do you mean by that? My loyalties are not divided. I don’t want one thing at one time and something just opposite at another. I don’t want to follow you one day and walk away from you another. My eyes are not one day fixed on heaven and the life you have called me to live and the next day fixed on the earth and all that it has to offer me. I’m not half-hearted. I’m all in. I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I want to live and walk in an intimate relationship with you. That is very good.

Are you saying that your heart is guiding your life? I would say that the love I have for you is guiding my life. My heart has set me on a pilgrimage of loving, following and serving you. Going wherever you guide me to do whatever you ask of me is no big sacrifice to me. Why is that? I want to do what is pleasing to you. I want to live my life with and for you. Instead of deciding if and when I will follow and obey you, I’m looking for ways to follow and serve you. I want to do what you will give me to do for you. That is very good.

Do you think you will be able to do all I ask you to do for me? Will you have all the strength you will need? Do you have the gifts and talents and abilities to accomplish my purposes and fulfill my plans? Those are good questions. On my own, with my strength and gifts and talents and abilities I will certainly not be able to go and do all that you ask of me. My own efforts will lead to certain failure. Relying on myself will lead to discouragement and disappointment. But, I will not be on my own. No you will not.  I will not be left to my own resources. You will be with me to help me. That’s right.  I will hold on to you as you hold on to me. You will lead and guide me. You will be the strength of my heart as it goes on a pilgrimage of loving, following and serving you. Yes, I will.

Lord, in your presence I have tasted of your goodness. You have drawn me into a pilgrimage of wanting to love, follow and serve you. My heart is set on you. I want to walk like you walked. I want to follow you to where you guide me to do all that you ask of me.  Amen

Make A Name For Ourselves

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Miracles - Genesis 11:4 - Make A Name For Ourselves - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Miracles – Genesis 11:4 – Make A Name For Ourselves – Growing As Disciples

Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:4 (NIV)

Make A Name

Is that what you want? What’s that? Do you want to make a name for yourself? Do you want to be honored and respected? Do you want to be envied? Do you want to be recognized and applauded? Do you want to be sought after? Do you want to be the center of attention? Do you want to receive praise and honor and adoration? Do you want to be held in high esteem? Is this what you want your life to be all about? Your questions are making me feel sick. Your questions are making me nauseated. Why is that? They are too close to home. You know that at one time I have wanted every one of these things. Oh, I might try to deny it. I might even fool myself. I could never fool you. I have been filled with pride. I have chased after all that the world could offer. I have wasted time and talents and resources chasing after making a name for myself. None of those efforts will amount to anything of eternal value. If by some measure, I had made a small name for myself, it would soon be forgotten. If by my efforts, I made some minor accomplishment, it would soon amount to nothing. Why is that? Without you, I can accomplish nothing of eternal value. That’s true.

What is it that you want? I want to glorify your name. I want you to be praised. I want to be able to point others to you. I want to be a witness for you in the world. I want people to be drawn to you, just as I have been drawn to you. I want others to love you, just as I love you. I want others to serve you, just as I serve you. I want others to receive you as their Savior and Lord, just as I have received you as my Savior and Lord. I don’t want anything for myself. I want to be used by you. I want what you want. I want your will to be accomplished in and through my life. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. I can see that. I will use you. My hand will be on you. I will work in and through you. You will bear and abundance of fruit for my kingdom. You will bring glory to my name. Thank you, Lord.

Lord,  I have wasted a lot of time, talent and resources trying to make a name for myself. What a waste of effort that has been. That has not been your plan. Help me now to glorify you in all I think, say and do. Help me to live the life you have called me to live. Amen

Compelled By The Spirit

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Holy Spirit - Acts 20:22-24 - Compelled By The Spirit - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Holy Spirit – Acts 20:22-24 – Compelled By The Spirit – Growing As Disciples

“And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me–the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace. Acts 20:22-24 (NIV)

Called And Compelled 

Are you listening? Can you hear me calling you? I have called you to come near to me. I have called you to listen to me. I want you to hear my guidance. I want you to follow my direction. I have a purpose and plan for your life. I have a race for your to run. I have a task for you to complete. I want you to live your life with and for me. I am listening. I have heard your call. Here I am right now. I have stopped running around. I have withdrawn from the noise and busyness of life. I am attentively listening to everything you want to say to me. I will listen to your guidance. I will follow your direction. I do want to live my life with and for you. I want to know and do your will. I want to fulfill your purposes and complete your plans. I will run the race that you have set before me. I will complete the tasks you have given to me. That is very good. 

There is something I want you to know. It may come as no surprise to you. What’s that? The road ahead will not be easy. You will face obstacles. You will need to overcome barriers. You’re right. That does not come as a big surprise to me. Why is that? The road to right here, where I am right now, has not been easy. In fact, I’m in the midst of difficulty right now. I’m weighed down. I’m burdened. I feel discouraged and depressed. Yes, I know. I will lift you up. I will encourage you. I will strengthen you. I will be your shelter in this storm. I will be your place of refuge in this trouble. Hold on to me. Yes Lord, I will. I will hold on to you. I know that to be true as well. How so? You have never let me go. You have never left me alone. You have always been with me to help me. So am I now. 

There is something else I want you to know. What’s that? I will compel you. I will put a fire in you. You will want to serve me with all your heart and mind and soul and strength. You will have passion burning within you to know me and do my will. You will be on fire to follow and serve me. You will shine brightly for me. I need that passion and fire in me right now. Yes, you do. 

There is one more thing I also want you to know. What’s that? You will have clarity. There will be no doubt in you about where you should go and what you should do. Why is that? I will clearly mark out the race I want you to run as you love, follow and serve me. Are you ready? Yes Lord, I am. That is very good.

Holy Spirit, I know I will face difficulty and obstacles as I go and do what the Lord has given me to do for Him. Help me to have the power and strength I will need to overcome both internal and external obstacles. Help me finish the race and complete the task. Amen
