This Thursday, families are coming together to eat, play, laugh and simply enjoy one another. Now is the time to give glory to God within our families.
Our prayer this period is for FAMILIES LIVING THEIR LIVES TOGETHER-ULTIMATELY BRINGING GLORY TO GOD!
When families are out in public; praying before meals, laughing and showing respect and love---many will see Jesus!
In all of that God is getting the Glory.
So, let's pray for our families as a unit to have unity, love and Jesus--Giving God the Glory!
6That together you may [unanimously] with united hearts and one voice, praise and glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).
7Welcome and receive [to your hearts] one another, then, even as Christ has welcomed and received you, for the glory of God.
8For I tell you that Christ (the Messiah) became a servant and a minister to the circumcised (the Jews) in order to show God's truthfulness and honesty by confirming (verifying) the promises [given] to our fathers,
9And [also in order] that the Gentiles (nations) might glorify God for His mercy [not covenanted] to them. As it is written, Therefore I will praise You among the Gentiles and sing praises to Your name.(A)
10Again it is said, Rejoice (exult), O Gentiles, along with His [own] people;(B)
11And again, Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples praise Him!(C)
12And further Isaiah says, There shall be a [a]Sprout from the Root of Jesse, He Who rises to rule over the Gentiles; in Him shall the Gentiles hope.(D)
13May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.
