26 March: What’s in a Relationship?

While most of us hate being involved in relationship breakdowns, today’s chapter helps us maintain the most important relationship any of us will ever hope for…

READ MARK 10  Make notes, if you’d like, of what stands out for you. Feel free to use the “Leave a Comment” box below to also write some of your thoughts.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

A young couple newly in-love, engaged or married will often be heard saying, “We won’t let anything come between us.” Well, the story of the rich man in today’s chapter is all about pinpointing the blockages and getting rid of them, in our relationship with our Maker. [v17-27]

If there’s anything between me and the One who made me to be like Him, He’ll know about it and pinpoint it whether I believe in Him or not. Seeking the Creator God and finding Him may be easy enough[a], His door is open to everyone.[b] But as Lord of all Creation, nothing should be higher on my “commitment scale” than Him. If there’s something standing in my way in surrendering to the first step – following Him with all my heart, soul, mind and strength, the first commandment[c] – I’ll not be able to make any more steps in my relationship with Him.

Wondering how to have a relationship with the One who made you to be like Him? The rest of this webpage uses Jesus’ own prayer to help…[d]

THE LORD’S PRAYER: 

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

Great and marvellous are Your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are the ways of the King of the nations. Who will not fear You, Lord? Who won’t bring glory to Your name? You alone are holy and all nations will come to worship before You because Your righteous acts have been revealed. [Revelation 15:3-4]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

  • The World: Pray for the Republic of Cameroon[e]
  • Your Country: Revival among Believers
  • Yourself: Greater compassion for others
  • Your concerns for today
Sovereign Lord, You’ve made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. You also show love to thousands. Great and mighty are You whose name is the Lord Almighty! [Jeremiah 32:17-18]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Father, may I forsake my wicked ways and give up my unrighteous thoughts. If I turn to You, Lord, You’ll have mercy on me because You, Lord, are my God, the One who’ll freely pardon. [Isaiah 55:7]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”

You change times and seasons, Lord. You depose kings and raise up others. You give wisdom to the wise, knowledge to the discerning, and You reveal deep and hidden things. You know what lies in darkness because light dwells with You. [Daniel 2:21-22]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”
