OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Bible Verse, Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

Today’s verse

Colossians 3:12-15 NLT
[12] Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. [13] Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. [14] Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. [15] And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

Philippians 2
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+2&version=NLT

Philippians 2:1-2 NLT
[1] Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? [2] Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used
to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Philippians 2:5-8

This is what it means to humble oneself. This is what it means to serve one another. This is what it means to hear someone else’s story and honor it, value it, and treasure it. This is what it means to enter into relationship with another person, another group of people.

Today’s prayer
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior. We need to humbly come to the table with open hearts, minds, eyes and ears. Remembering where we would be and end up if not for You Jesus. We must live and share and walk accordingly. Lord, we all have a long way to go before we have the same mindset as Christ, but I want to try. I want to cast off earthly power and position and popularity in favor of serving you and serving others. I don’t really know where to begin with that, but I am willing. Here I am. Amen.

Joyfully Building Brave Spaces

April 29, 2018

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Bible Verse, Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

Today’s verse

Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding.
Proverbs 3:13 NLT

Today’s reading
Proverbs 3
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+3&version=NLT

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT

Today’s devotion
Building Brave Spaces
Life for Leaders Daily Devotion
https://mailchi.mp/depree.org/building-brave-spaces?e=1bc587c115

David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” 1 Samuel 17:45-47

Brave spaces are transformational.

Brave spaces draw a person out and give them the opportunity to be transformed. Alternatively, safe spaces often make it safe for me to stay the way I am. Brave spaces invite vulnerability, while safe spaces often keep me shielded from growth. David’s brothers and the rest of Saul’s army chose safety when facing Goliath. But God calls us out of hiding and into the light, where we are invited to partner with God in miraculous acts that bring a new way of living. We may not slay actual giants, but bravery can certainly transform our perspective and grow our capacity for love.

Do Something
Matthew West

Today’s prayer
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior. In Your wisdom is the key to understanding that which we don’t understand. So I seek Your will above all. Knowing that it will take me out of my safe space. Lord, I like safety, the peace of feeling connected to You. I like knowing my loved ones are blessed and protected. Help me to know when to choose safety, when to be brave, and when to choose both. Help me to walk by faith. Trusting only in You. Amen.
