Opening prayer:

Heavenly Father, may I lay aside vainglory today, and fix my heart on the glory of your sacrificial love in Jesus. Amen.

Song for reflection: "You Never Let Go"

Scripture reading: Matthew 25:31-46

Reflection questions:

Following Jesus is an invitation to live for a different kind of glory. What kind of glory does your life display?

In this Scripture, how would you describe the glory Jesus invites us to exhibit?

Like Peter, we can get caught holding onto the world’s values. What might it mean today to take up your cross and embody the glories of Jesus’ love?

Closing Prayer:

God, thank you for giving up your Son Jesus to death that I may find new life. May his Spirit transform me today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Week's memory verse:

“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” ~Matthew 16:25
