Scripture reading for September 2nd: Philippians 1, Psalm 25, Proverbs 21
Key Scriptures: Philippians 1:9-11 “And this is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.”
Paul was always praying for those who had come to Christ Jesus through the Gospel message. The Gospel message was a doorway that opened up to new birth and growth in Christ-likeness. Paul prayed that their love would grow incrementally along with their understanding of God’s Word and holy character. The goal was seeing all the believers declared blameless on the day of Christ’s judgment. He wanted all believers to have rewards that brought praise to God.
Faith Confession: Lord, thank You for praying for me and writing down this prayer for Your Church. Help me to become a man of prayer for other believers with the goal that all would stand blameless through Jesus Christ at His judgment seat.
Psalm 25:4 “Make me to know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths.”
