Transforming Lives Through The Love of Christ

Engage The Word- May 5, 2015

1. Before you read, quiet your heart for one minute of silence

 2. Read the following Scripture:

1 Samuel 18:24 – 30

24 When Saul’s servants told him what David had said, 
25 Saul replied, “Say to David, ‘The king wants no other price for the bride than a hundred Philistine foreskins, to take revenge on his enemies.’ ” Saul’s plan was to have David fall by the hands of the Philistines. 
26 When the attendants told David these things, he was pleased to become the king’s son-in-law. So before the allotted time elapsed, 
27 David and his men went out and killed two hundred Philistines. He brought their foreskins and presented the full number to the king so that he might become the king’s son-in-law. Then Saul gave him his daughter Michal in marriage. 
28 When Saul realized that the LORD was with David and that his daughter Michal loved David, 
29 Saul became still more afraid of him, and he remained his enemy the rest of his days.
30 The Philistine commanders continued to go out to battle, and as often as they did, David met with more success than the rest of Saul’s officers, and his name became well known.

3. What God saying to you through this Scripture?  Pause for another minute and let God speak to you in your silence4.  Read the following Scripture:

Revelation 5:10- 14
10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.” 
11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creaturesand the elders. 
12 In a loud voice they sang: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!” 
13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: “To him who sits on the throneand to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” 
14The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

5.  Does this relate to my life?  What does God want me to do with this passage of Scripture? Pause for one more minute and reflect upon what God is speaking to your heart in this moment. 

6.  The Gloria

 “Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be.  World without end.”
 Amen.
