Spiritual Warfare: 'God Has Sheep Not in Your Group'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, November 16, 2022

Just as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I give my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not in this flock, and I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
— John 10:15-16 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for thinking MY group of believers in Jesus is the ONLY group that You approve of. Remind me that Jesus desires unity rather than division and that ALL of us who follow Jesus are disciples. Father, we admit we are flawed and imperfect, that we are still learning how to live and testify to Your love and Your greatness. Anoint our testimonies, Lord, and unite our hearts for Your eternal glory and the sake of the lost world. Help us to find joy in the unity of faith, love, baptism, and witnessing to a lost world instead of just bashing other believers in Jesus. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
