"Transforming Lives Through The Love of Christ"

Engage The Word-May 8, 2015

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

 2. Read the following Scripture:

1 Samuel 19:7 – 10

7 So Jonathan called David and told him the whole conversation. He brought him to Saul, and David was with Saul as before. 
8 Once more war broke out, and David went out and fought the Philistines. He struck them with such force that they fled before him.
9 But an evil[a] spirit  from the Lord came on Saul as he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand. While David was playing the lyre,  10 Saul tried to pin him to the wall with his spear, but David eluded  him as Saul drove the spear into the wall. That night David made good his escape.

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:

Revelation 13:8- 13

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies,  they will cease; where there are tongues,  they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part  and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes,  what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood  behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror;  then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

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.”
