5.9.17 Prayer Prompt: Actively Believe

PRAYER PROMPT ••• “Believe” is a popular word. 

It evokes a motivational quality and is often used on inspirational memes, as well as pretty, hand-scripted signs. 

It’s a word of action. 

It means we hold something true and never is this word more powerfully used than throughout the Bible. 

John 3:15 says, “that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.” 

This is the foundation of our Christian faith, but are we putting enough action behind the word? 

It’s not enough to SAY we believe. 

Are you ACTIVELY LIVING your belief? 

Belief in action can take the form of praying for your meal in public… 

Volunteering your time to serve others… 

Talking about your church in a conversational way… 

Inviting others to join you… 

Listening to others and showing compassion…  

In short, pray, listen to the Holy Spirit, and allow Christ to shine through you. 

Live a life that’s “different” from the world’s standard. 

Today, as you pray, ask the Holy Spirit to show you how to actively live your belief so others can see Christ in you.

NOTE: Feel free to comment, but these prayer prompts are meant to be between you and God. Matthew 6:6 — But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
