Week 4 - #Jesus Weekly

This week, let's focus on deepening our bond with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As #JesusMen, we're not just attendees but active contributors at our church, participating & volunteering in services and events throughout the week. #JesusMen let's make our daily journeys and routines meaningful by listening to the book of Romans, an audio exploration of sin, salvation, grace, and faith. Let's choose to watch spiritually nourishing programs like Episode 4 of "The Chosen" over everyday TV, and let's dive into Session 4 of Chuck Missler's "Learn the Bible in 24 Hours," which closes out the book of Genesis. Let's not forget to allocate time for reading John chapters 16 to 21, highlighting Jesus' promise of the Holy Spirit, His crucifixion, and His resurrection. Let's also commit to purposeful prayer, seeking and listening to the guidance of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


#JesusMen, below you will find 7 ideas that we would like you to consider this week.  


Presented above is a sample schedule for illustrative purposes. Feel free to adjust it according to your preferences.  Our aim is to evolve our temporary commitment into enduring habits, thereby fostering a structured and disciplined spiritual life through regular practice and active participation.

Heavenly Father,


In this moment of reflection and prayer, I come before You, recognizing the profound love You have always shown for Your creation.


Father, Eternal One, I seek a meaningful relationship with the Holy Spirit. I ask for the empowerment of Your Holy Spirit to be manifest within me, bringing forth not only the fruits of Your Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control—but also the gifts You have given me to serve others and glorify Your name. Help me to allow these virtues and gifts to flow from me like a river, touching the lives of those I encounter with the warmth and sincerity of Your love.


This week, Holy Week, I aim to remember and honor Your Son, Jesus Christ, who has shown us the way, the truth, and the life through His willing sacrifice. It is through Him that I have this pathway of communication with You and the opportunity to have a relationship with You.


Grant me, Father, the courage and strength to love deeply, as Your Word instructs. May my heart always be open to giving and receiving love, recognizing that in doing so, I am fulfilling Your greatest commandments. Help me to see others through Your eyes, extending grace, forgiveness, and compassion to those in need.


As I conclude this prayer, I recommit my life to You, asking that You use me as a vessel of Your love.


May my actions reflect the love and power of Christ, drawing others closer to You. For it is in loving others that I truly demonstrate my love for You.


In the migthy name of Jesus Christ, My Redeemer, Your Son, and our Great Hope, I pray.  Amen.


*Feel free to modify this prayer your own version, aligning it with your heart, voice and understanding.

John 15:12: "My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you."  1 John 4:7-8: "Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."  1 John 3:23: "And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us."  1 Peter 4:8: "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins."  1 John 4:19: "We love because He first loved us."  Matthew 22:37-39: Jesus replied: "‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’"


This week, Holy Week, reminds us of the extraordinary lengths to which our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (Yeshua), went to redeem us. It highlights that He is the way, the truth, and the life, offering us access to the Father and the Holy Spirit. Let's use this week to reflect on this profound reality. Let's strive, more than ever, to develop and display the fruits and gifts of the Spirit, spend more time in communion with the Father, and remember and honor the sacrifice made on our behalf by the Son, our redeemer, Jesus Christ.
