A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Do you understand why the world hates Christ and His true followers?

Do you know that God asks believers in Christ not to love the world and the things that are in the world?

Are you attached to the world and its system?

Do you live for the three "P's" of the world: Passion, Possession, Position?

 

DAY # 54

TODAY’S REQUEST:

THANKING GOD FOR SALVATION:

OUT OF THE WORLD INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD

James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

James 4:4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

2 Peter 1:4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2 Peter 2:20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.

1 John 3:1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

1 John 3:13 Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

LEAVING THE WORLD AND NOT TURNING BACK

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world - the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life - is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
