Day 24

Read 1 Peter 4:7-11

As those living in the era between the cross and Jesus’ glorious return, God’s people are to be marked by a lifestyle of love and humble service. When we live this way, God is glorified.

Reflection: Why is serving others not just “the right thing for Christians to do” but good stewardship of the grace and gifts He’s given us?

Prayer Point: Pray that Christ would ready us for his return by forming in us a servant’s heart. Pray that you would be a good steward of the gifts he’s given.

Families/Kids: Read The Jesus Storybook Bible: The Servant King

Reflection: Do your parents ever ask you to take out the garbage, wash dishes, or even clean the bathroom? Why was Jesus happy to do such a dirty job for his friends?

Prayer Point: Thank Jesus that he was happy to do more than wash dirt off our feet, he happily went to the cross to wash away sin from our hearts.
