Day 5 – Rejoice, Pray, Give Thanks

Friday, January 11th, 2013

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Reflection:

Rejoicing, praying and giving thanks are the marks of God’s watchmen. The Spirit provides all of them collectively as a “package deal.” When we rejoice then we also can’t help but to pray and give thanks, and vice versa for the others.

Living as a watchman is not a somber, angst-ridden experience but is meant to be filled with freedom and joy. Even as we remain vigilant in praying tirelessly for God’s kingdom to come, we celebrate what He has already done and trust in His victories to come.

Response:

May we be filled with the Spirit, receiving His blessing afresh. In response, let’s rejoice and give thanks for God’s victory in our lives even as we continue to pray for our classmates, families, co-workers, and neighbors to meet the Lord.
