Life Christian Center of Salinas is currently in our New Year’s SPF-21: 21 Days of Sabbath, Prayer, Fasting. Through the majority of January, please read and think on the Scriptures included in each daily devotion. Rather than a twice-per-week teaching or inspirational devotion, we aim to unite in daily prayer over a single subject. Please consider taking a few minutes (or more) to pray for each day’s specific topic contained in these devotions. For any who do not attend Life Christian Center, please join with us and personalize the prayer topic of the day for you, your family, your church, or your community. We will resume our twice-per-week discipleship devotions at the conclusion of SPF-21. (For more info on the 1/9-14 AWE Prayers, please check out “Awaken Wonder & Expectancy” podcasts)
Day 4: AWE Prayer: Personal practice and healthy Church culture of ‘Allelon' With Encouragement (emphasis on consistently living the Bible’s “one another” commands and principles in Christian fellowship)
1 Thessalonians 5:9-13 NLT - For God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us. 10 Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever. 11 So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 12 Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. 13 Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. And live peacefully with each other.
