Lord, we pray for our military, that You would walk with them in their trials and bring them safely through.
Father, we pray concerning the missing Malaysian jet, that You would make the truth plain to those who are seeking it, and that You would comfort the families of those missing.
LORD, who created and formed us, You say, Fear not. For You have redeemed us; You have called us by name, and we are Yours. When we pass through the waters, You will be with us, and when we pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over us. When we walk through the fire, we will not be burned; the flames will not set us ablaze. For You are the LORD, our God, the Holy One of Israel, our Savior. You are the one who loves us, who rescues us, who knows and remembers us, who holds our lives and orders our steps. You know how easily fear comes crawling into us, and we ask that Your Spirit would give us peace when the way is hard and uncertain, would teach us to trust You even to the rivers and flames. We thank You for Your great and precious promises, in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
Praying With You, Dear Irish Rose, For Our American heroes and For Our Nation.
A call to prayer.
Joining you in timely prayers.
Read: Ephesians 4:11-16
When the British Broadcasting Corporation asked for examples of important-sounding, obscure, and even bizarre job titles, one writer offered hers: Underwater Ceramic Technician. She was a dishwasher at a restaurant. Sometimes titles are used to make a job sound more important.
When the apostle Paul listed some of Gods gifts to the church in Ephesians 4:11, he did not intend for these to be understood as high-sounding job titles. All the parts of the body are necessary for the body to function properly. No one part is better than another.
What was of primary importance was the purpose of these gifts. They were for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to . . . the stature of the fullness of Christ (vv.12-13).
It matters little what title we hold. What is important is that we strengthen the faith of Gods people. When we gauge our effectiveness by the standard that the Bible gives us, it will not matter when we are moved to another role or no longer hold a specific title. Out of love for God, we serve to build up fellow believers, and we let God give His commendation in heaven as He sees fit (Matt. 25:21).
