March 9, 2014 – Morning Worship
Monday – Luke 14:7–14 (esp. vss. 12–14); Deuteronomy 15:1–11
Read these passages then focus on Luke 14:12–14. What do you think it means?
Tuesday – Luke 14:7–14; Ezekiel 21:26; James 4:6,10; I Peter 5:1–6
Luke 14:7–11 teaches us to humble ourselves, in other words, have an attitude of humility. Why is that important for mercy ministry? (Luke 14:12–14)
Wednesday – Luke 4:12–14; Matthew 5:38–48; I Corinthians 6:1–8; I Peter 2:18–23
This text makes a point of inviting those who cannot repay you, or invite you back, etc. Why? What does that mean? How does it apply to mercy ministry?
Thursday – Luke 14:15–24; Acts 24:17; Romans 15:25–27; II Corinthians 8:1–15; James 1:27
These passages (and many others!) make it clear that we who have experienced the grace of God should intentionally look for ways to help the needy. Why are salvation and mercy ministry so closely connected?
Friday – Titus 1–3
Read all three chapters of Titus. Notice the importance of having both sound doctrine and good works. Why is that? Application to you?
Saturday – Luke 14:14; Matthew 25:31–46
How does the reality of the resurrection and our hope of the resurrection help us to do mercy ministry?
