Day 33

A Ministry of Dominion

from the Everything New reading plan

Matthew 20:20-28, Luke 6:31, Luke 22:24-27, Hebrews 6:10, Galatians 5:13, 1 Corinthians 10:23-33, 1 Peter 4:11

BY She Reads Truth

In light of each day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.

Jesus demonstrated the true posture of a reigning king in serving others and laying down His own rights and life. So we serve others, modeling His posture of dominion toward the promised end when God’s people will reign alongside Him. 

After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about how reigning with God changes how you serve others. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.

    Knowing that we will reign with the King eliminates the need to drive for worldly power and thus allows us to the time and freedom to serve others.

    It is lawful but it isn’t wise…. These words are so true. We have the freedom but is it wise to do certain things. Service to others should bring joy but what doesn’t it in so many situations?

    Ministry of dominion for a Christian means serving others ,and meeting their needs as directed by God . ,

    I have been thinking about service a lot lately as I have realized that I avoid giving my time and energy in that way. I recently moved on from a job in a Christian setting where my willingness to serve was greatly taken advantage of. I realized that I accidentally learned to step away from serving and caring for people in the way I should as a way of protecting myself from being too broken by it all! I am now in a healthy setting, doing the same kind of work, but I find myself still stepping away out of habit. Will you please pray I can find joy in serving and getting to know God’s children!

      Hi Brooklyn, I have said a prayer for you , that God will heal you from the hurt you experience when you were taken advantage of . I also pray He would rekindle a desire to serve . I pray He restores and gives you joy and bring the right opportunity to you . He loves you and knows what happened so He would. He gentle with you .
