A Daily Devotion



Jesus Came to Save the Lost! - Luke 19:10


"The Son of Man came to find lost people and save them." (ERV)

Key Thought


Jesus didn't come to please the religious crowd. Jesus didn't come to pander to the social crowd. Jesus didn't come to hang out with the wild bunch. Instead, Jesus entered the world to save sinners. When we look back over the Gospel of Luke, we see Jesus reach out to men and women, young and old, powerful and forgotten, demon possessed, and the politically connected. He came to save sinners of all shapes, sizes, and stripes. He came to save you and me.

 

Today's Prayer


Holy and righteous God, thank you for your great desire to bring salvation to all people -- including me. Open my heart and move me to reach out to others who need to know your grace. Even more, dear Father, stir me to seek the lost as passionately as your Son did ... and still does. In Jesus' name. Amen

SUNDAY PRAYER


1.    PRAYER FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM:

Father God,
Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites;
Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth. This is a prayer over the city of Jerusalem.
