Today’s Scripture Reading: Philippians 2:12-4:23
Heavenly Father, our world is headed for destruction, just like Paul predicted. The appetites of Your people are out of control. Over indulgence in Sex, food, alcohol, drugs, and material possessions are rampant. Moderation and abstinence have become a thing of the past, even in Your church.
They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control. —Philippians 3:19-21
Holy Spirit, wake us up! We are citizens of heaven! We are supposed to be different from the world.
Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. —2 Chronicles 7:14
In Jesus Name. Amen and Amen!
