Today, we remember Christ’s sacrifice for our sins. He died in a horrendous way, so we could be reconciled with God. I’m so thankful for the hope that comes with his death and resurrection. I can’t help but think of the people in my life who don’t yet know Jesus as their Savior.
I Timothy 2 tells us, “I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.” On this holy day, I can’t help but think about all those who are lost, those who do not know the beauty of Christ’s sacrifice. I encourage you to take a few minutes today to lift up by name people you know who need Jesus. Pray for God to draw them to him by the Spirit. After that, pray for the prodigals in your life. Ask the Lord to bring them back home. As we remember Jesus’s sacrifice for us, let’s not forget those that still need him.
There is no activity today other than prayer and scripture reading.
“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone.” I Timothy 2:1-6
