"Transforming Lives Through The Love of Christ"

Engage The Word- May 2, 2015

1. Before you read, quiet your heart for one minute of silence

 2. Read the following Scripture:

1 Samuel 18: 1 – 5

1 After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself. 
2 From that day Saul kept David with him and did not let him return to his father’s house. 
3 And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself. 
4 Jonathan took off the robe he was wearing and gave it to David, along with his tunic, and even his sword, his bow and his belt. 
5 Whatever Saul sent him to do, David did it so successfully that Saul gave him a high rank in the army. This pleased all the people, and Saul’s officers as well. 

3. What God saying to you through this Scripture?  Pause for another minute and let God speak to you in your silence

4.  Read the following Scripture:

Romans 6:15- 18
15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! 
16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey–whether you are slaves to sin,which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 
17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. 
18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. 

5.  Does this relate to my life?  What does God want me to do with this passage of Scripture? Pause for one more minute and reflect upon what God is speaking to your heart in this moment. 

6.  The Gloria
 “Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be.  World without end.”
