Day Eighteen – Counting the Cost

by more2life

In Luke 14, Jesus tells a parable about a banquet that was given and how those who were invited started sending back messages given reasons why they should be excused from having to attend. On the surface, each excuse seems to have some legitimacy to them, but when really investigated, they prove to be nothing more than just excuses. […]

Day Seventeen – Counting the Cost

The Christian life is one of grace and privilege. God has bestowed on us the great honor of being His children through the salvation that was extended to us in Christ Jesus. In Christ, there is power, provision, prosperity, in Him there is life and peace. We have been given the blessing to reign with Him and to […]

Day Sixteen – Counting the Cost

by more2life

Yesterday (day 15) I shared the truth that the world is always watching and weighing our words and our actions. Just as important as it is to acknowledge that truth, it’s also imperative that we grasp the fact that the Lord is always watching and weighing our words and our actions. He sees right through our smoke screens of self-righteousness […]

Day Fifteen – Counting the Cost

by more2life

The world around us needs a visible and verbal witness of the joyous reality of the Christ-filled life. That has always been true for every time and for every season, but especially now. We live in a time of ever-increasing spiritual darkness and moral decadence. If the people of God continue to remain quiet and hidden, the future of […]

Day Fourteen – Give Us Our Daily Bread

by more2life

God’s kingdom operates on a receiving system that works on two basic principles. The first is that every day I am dependent on the Father for providing what I need to be on mission with Him. This means that every day I must start at the beginning seeking first the Father’s kingdom (Matthew 6:33), His […]

Day Thirteen – Give Us Our Daily Bread

In Luke 12:16-21, Jesus tells us a story about a rich man whose land produces plentifully. He asks a great question: “What do I do with all I have?” His answer: “I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my grain and my goods.” There is nothing wrong […]

Day Twelve – Give Us Our Daily Bread

by more2life

Our focus this week has been on receiving daily bread from the Father to fulfill the call He has on our lives. For so many this is a major source of stress due mainly to a wrong focus that looks to themselves as the source of their supply. It is and always has been the […]

Day Eleven – Give Us Our Daily Bread

by more2life

After Jesus told the man in Luke 12 that He would not be manipulated by desperate demands, He warns him against covetousness. Covetousness is a churchy word that doesn’t get much use today. He is actually saying (author’s paraphrase): “Set a guard against any form of greed that would drive your soul to possess more […]

Day Ten – Give Us Our Daily Bread

by more2life

In Luke 12:13-15, Jesus is accosted by a man who demands that Jesus tell His brother to divide the inheritance with him. Though up front it seems like a reasonable request, Jesus refuses to be dragged into this family conflict as with judge or arbitrator. Why? Because Jesus cannot be used as our agent to […]

Day Nine – Give Us Our Daily Bread

by more2life

In week one of this spiritual journey, we saw that prayer is my relational response to God’s invitation to know Him intimately and to join Him missionally. In line with this principle, we must remember that prayer is not only for relating to the Father but it is also for receiving from the Father. Jesus’ […]
