Daily Office Project
The Daily Office Project is a devotional adventure. It represents a corporate attempt to insert serious spiritual ritual and discipline into seriously busy American lives. There is a morning exercise and an evening exercise for each day. The best way to participate is to do work with the morning exercise at the very start of your day and to do work with the end of day exercise right before bed.
Along with this, most participants are receiving texts at noon and at 5 PM each day. The texts and the exercises are built around a unified theme. In this way, we are trying to establish a spiritual rhythm that encompasses all of each day.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
"Wherever you are, be all there! Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God." Jim Elliot
Today is the last day of texts. I pray that noon and five will find you interrupted by God’s presence every day.
Where better to spend our last day together than in the very center of heaven. John takes us there in Revelation 4 and 5. This morning, try to imagine the scene. Listen to the songs being sung. I especially want you to notice John’s grief in chapter 5 that no one can open the scroll – and rejoice at how that grief is resolved.
Let’s use The Lord’s Prayer as a model for our day-end reflection tonight. Spend 2 or 3 minutes on each stanza.
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” Jim Elliot
"God is not concerned about our plans … The things that happen either make us evil, or they make us more saintly, depending entirely on our relationship with God and its level of intimacy." O. Chambers
To the Church in Thyatira
18 “To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:
As you read these next chapters, allow God to speak to you about your life and about the fellowship in which you are involved. Listen for what the Spirit is saying to you and your church.
"We have to get into the habit of carefully listening to God about everything, forming the habit of finding out what He says and heeding it. If, when a crisis comes, we instinctively turn to God, we will know that the habit has been formed in us." O. Chambers
