Run the Race: Week 7

Weekly Devotional – One Step Closer Every Day

Spend a few minutes every day, reading, meditating, writing and praying with God so that you can take one step closer to Jesus every day.


Sunday – Acts 2:1-47 –Acts 2 is the story of Pentecost and the birthday of the church. Compare and contrast the picture of the first church in verses 42-47 with today’s church.

Monday  John 16:1-33 – Jesus told the disciples that he was going away but they would not be alone. How has God’s Holy Spirit been with you during difficult times?

Tuesday Genesis 1:2, Psalm 104:1-35 –The Holy Spirit is not just a New Testament thing but has been a part of God’s work from the beginning. Can you point to times in your life when God was present behind the scenes?

Wednesday Romans 12:2-8, Ephesians 4:7-13 –  Here are 2 different lists of Spiritual Gifts. They are different – meaning they are not exhaustive. What Gifts would you add to these lists?

Thursday –1 Corinthians 12:1-11 – Paul describes Spiritual Gifts in v. 7 as a “manifestation of the spirit” that each of us get for the common good. Where have you seen the Holy Spirit manifest in your life?

Friday – Matthew 3:13-17 – In this passage we get to see Jesus, hear God and experience the Holy Spirit all in the same place.

Saturday – Galatians 5:1-26 – Look at the “Fruit of the Spirit” listed in verses 22-23. How do those characteristics manifest in your life? Which ones do you need to see more?
