(Be sure to read the introduction that has been prepared for this week's Devotionals found on the spot below with the title, Sunday, June 28th. We usually put the message summary there. The message summary is a part of the Deep Six Study as well. So that is where it can be found this week by clicking on "Watch" and "Discussion Notes.")
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. Romans 12:10-13 (NASB)
The symbol here is a "steeple" and it reminds us of the memorial occasion when we first understood God's plan for the local church and we committed ourselves to be fully engaged and actively involved in its ministry and service. A symbol of a "steeple" beckons us to be renewed in our commitment to the local church and to go further and deeper. For some the symbol of a "steeple" presents to you the opportunity to respond to God in commitment for the first time to be fully engaged and actively involved in the ministry and service of the local church.
Writing out a prayer response that captures how God is at work in your heart and life today can be a valuable experience. So, we leave the prayer response in your hands today.
