DEVOTIONAL: “Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test! I hope you will find out that we have not failed the test.” 2 Corinthians 13:5-6, ESV.
CHALLENGE: Vertical Prayer… Prayer begins with looking upwards instead of inwards. Having a right relationship with the Creator helps us focus on God’s will for our lives. Kendrick writes, “The real question in not ‘What do I think God should do?’ but rather ‘What has He decided?’” He links vertical prayer with “true salvation”. Most people today “have religion and know about God, but they don’t truly have a relationship and know Him personally.” (Italics in original). Do we know enough about God to truly know Him and be in right relationship with Him?
