weekends are for standing


‘With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground.

And don’t hold back.

Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for Him is a waste of time or effort.

—1 Corinthians 15:58 MSG

Prayers on the Weekend Pray for your husband 20 minutes a day: “At the top of each hour, spend 2 minutes praying for him {specifically}. Do this between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm (give or take depending on your schedule). THAT’S 20 MINUTES A DAY!” … let’s set our clock timers and pray for our men!

Thinking on the Weekend What would you grab if your house was burning down? : “If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.” Fascinating website of how people answered just that one question.

Work Encouragement for the Weekend:

For several years now, I’ve been connected to a group of writers and bloggers at The High Calling. They believe in the value of regular work as a way to honor God. They reminds us that God calls farmers or dishwashers or teachers or construction workers just as much as He call pastors. What we do matters to God. We are all in full-time ministry. 

It’s easy for Christians to sometimes forget this. So The High Calling has put together a lot of resources to help churches and small groups organize a special service that honors people in the workplace. You don’t have to register. You don’t have to pay anything. It is just their attempt to help Christians remember that God cares about your daily work, no matter what you do. Consider sharing these resources with your small group or faith community or family this coming Labor Day Sunday . Want to know that your work matters to God? Check out Labor Day Sunday.org

Truth for the Weekend: (HT: The Gospel Coalition) You can’t watch this and not think about loving your life and your Lord!
