Bride of Christ

A Regular Practice 9/18/14

Job... would get up early in the morning and offer a burnt offering for each of them. For Job said to himself, “Perhaps my children have sinned and have cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular practice.  Job 1:5  NLT

"Perhaps my children have sinned"????  Of course they have!   But.. Can a man sacrifice for the sins of his children?  Well... Yes!  And... No!   

On the one hand, I cannot redeem the lives of my children... grandchildren... or great grandchildren by paying a RANSOM to God.   As it is written,  "No man can by any means redeem his brother Or give to God a ransom for him"  [Psalm 49:7]

On the other hand... I CAN rise up early in the morning and pray for them.   The personal sacrifice of taking time, bringing them to the Lord in prayer can be a regular morning practice. 

Do you think praying for family might be worth a REGULAR PRACTICE of your time?
