Day 9

Jan 31, 2023

Read John 15:6

If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.


No one could imagine a branch voluntarily disconnecting itself from the vine. But we have hearts that can easily go astray. Hebrews 3:12–13 says, “See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called ‘Today,’ so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”

Prayers for Today:

  • Pray today that God would keep your own heart tender and sensitive to him; pray the same thing for your brothers and sisters in Christ at the Summit.
  • Ask God to make us a family that faithfully encourages one another.
  • Pray that our small groups, as well as men’s and women’s discipleship ministries, would help our members become deeper, stronger disciples—seeking to know what their Master knows and do what their Master does.
