Spiritual Warfare: 'Jesus Regularly Gathered with God's People'

God's Power for Our Battles — Sunday, May 15, 2022

Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Holy Spirit, and stories about him spread all through the area. He began to teach in their synagogues, and everyone praised him. Jesus traveled to Nazareth, where he had grown up. On the Sabbath day he went to the synagogue, as he always did, and stood up to read.
— Luke 4:14-16 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I realize that the church is the bride of Christ (2 Cor. 11:2). Forgive me for speaking ill of the church and letting hypocrites in the church keep me from attending. I also realize that Jesus always went to gather with Your people in the synagogue. I know that I should follow His example. I know that he could have used the excuse not to assemble because He actually was gathering with those who were planning His murder. If He didn't use that excuse, Lord, then neither should I find an excuse to miss gathering with Your people. Help me as I seek to be faithful. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
