Day 39 of 47 for Lent Plan

God, I have been enjoying the bible reading plan You have been walking me through. I’m sorry to be so late getting them on, but with Your help we’ll get them on little by little.
No rush. Just convalescing with You, and following Your lead in sharing with others.
YouVersion (a bible app You have blessed me with)
is doing a plan called 40 Days of Lent.

Day 39 of 47 for Lent Plan“Teaching: The Holy Spirit”
Reading: John 16:5-15 KJV

Further Study

  • Why did Jesus say it was best for Him to go away?
    – To send us the Comforter ❤
  • Who will convict the world of sin?
    The Comforter.
  • What will the Spirit of Truth do? List three things.
    1. Guide us in all things.
    2. Speak not of itself, but tell us all things, which Jesus tells are of the Father.
    3. Glorify Jesus

Reflect

  • Worship: Write down one attribute of God and worship Him for ho He is.
    – Truth. Thank You, Jesus, for being true to our Father God! And to us ❤
  • Prayer: Pray for your closest friends.
  • Remembrance: Think of a time You were convicted over a sin in your life. Write about how you changed.
    I was convicted over perversion in my life when I was trying to be abstinent. I was new to realizing I was a Christian and wanted to desperately obey Your word in waiting. It changed my life so much for the better… by far
  • Self- Examination: Do you find it easy to let the Holy Spirit guide you in your life?
    There are many times I get in my own way trying so hard, but the Holy Spirit knows how to convict, to lead me in prayer and repentance, to comfort me with peace, love, and reassurance that I am forgiven. He nurtures the confidence You tells me I need in the day of re-reward.  And He prays for me with meanings and groanings than cannot be uttered. Then teaches my to pray, for myself, my family, my friends, my church, my community, the world, and even for my enemies!
    He touches my love. He teaches me love and insight about my heavenly Father and His precious Son. Such wonderful things, They are glorious.”

“I think of my blessed Redeemer.
I think of Him all the day long,

I sing for I cannot be silent.
His love is the theme of my song.”

A Kind Act

  • Make a family member breakfast in bed.

 

His Salvation Is My Story

gaillovesgodspoetry

How marvelous are the many things of You.
Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God.
How grateful I am to be under
Your protective Shepherd’s rod.
Your eye is on every one of Your sheep.
You see the one that goes astray.
You leave the ninety nine
To carry me out of my wayward way.
You hold, You embrace,
You cover me with Your hand.
Thank You, Holy Spirit,
For helping me to understand.
The blood of Jesus cleanses me.
His salvation is my story.
How worthy You are of honor
My ink pens Your glory.

Runaway Slaves

Runaway slaves
with a debt to pay,
that is a good description
of us all today.
Running from a God
who loves us so,
we’re convinced we’re freed
but it just isn’t so.
Sin has become our master.
We’re slaves no matter what.
How much more freeing
to serve a living and loving God.
So Christ comes to plea
and pay the debt we owe.
He makes us family.
He does not let go.
Surrender your account
that has been paid by Christ.
God loves you as His child
and longs to give you eternal life.
