GPS for Thursday – 5.13.2021 – James 1:22-25 (CEB)
You must be doers of the word and not only hearers who mislead themselves. Those who hear but don’t do the word are like those who look at their faces in a mirror. They look at themselves, walk away, and immediately forget what they were like. But there are those who study the perfect law, the law of freedom, and continue to do it. They don’t listen and then forget, but they put it into practice in their lives. They will be blessed in whatever they do.
Prayer Tip: When we read scripture, it should change the way we behave in our lives. What is God asking you to change in your life right now?

GPS for Saturday – 5.15.2021 – John 5:39-40 (CEB)
Examine the scriptures, since you think that in them you have eternal life. They also testify about me, yet you don’t want to come to me so that you can have life.
Prayer Tip: The Word of God is Jesus Christ. The word of God that we know as our bibles is meant to point us to God, to help us connect more deeply to God, to reveal God’s character. We worship Jesus, not our bibles, and that is an important distinction. Pray that God would reveal Godself to you in a new way today.
