Ready to Rescue Day 26


20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.


Praise God for the mercy He has poured out on us by giving us the hope of eternal life. Repent of any lack of gratitude that you have for what God has done, is doing, and desires to do in and through your life. Ask God to pierce your heart for those who are in need of rescue (doubters, those in danger, and those who have been defiled by sin). Yield to God's work in your life through faith, love, and mercy so that you will be ready to rescue.


  • How does it make you feel that God has invited you to be part of His rescue mission?
  • What challenges do we face in proclaiming Christ and making disciples?


"Might God not ordain that his fullest blessings will come to the church when we prevail in prayer with the intensity of fasting? That kind of intensification of prayer is what fasting is. It's a physical exclamation point at the end of the sentence, 'We hunger for you, O God, to come in power.' It's a cry with our body, not just our soul: 'I really mean it, LORD! This much, I hunger for you. I want the manifestation of you yourself more than I want food.'"
