The Father’s heart for His church…


Ephesians 2:10 (NIV): “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them”.


Let us be determined this week to:

Recognise that WE are the church! Church is not just a place we visit on a Sunday: it’s the love we pour into one another; it’s our choice to live in unity and harmony with one another; it’s us as God’s children rising up to bear fruit and do good works to advance His Kingdom. Let us obey God’s commands, and be rich in kindness and grace towards everyone we meet. Let us ask the Holy Spirit to equip us with wisdom and love as we glorify our Heavenly Father and serve others. May God use us mightily to be catalysts of hope, and to fearlessly make the Good News known.
Grow in our compassion towards one another. It delights our Father God when we care for those in need, those who are suffering, or those who are destitute and alone. Let our hearts be filled with His language of love – so that we may speak the truth of His Word, in love, to those around us. May we always be praying for the people in our lives, and may we be generous in giving of our time and resources. May we be the church everywhere that we go!

“…give, so that copies of Your Word can go forth all around the world and reach places that we will never visit on our own…
“…get back to Your Word – listening to You, obeying Your commands and showing others the love that You have for us and for them, thank You Jesus…”
“… utilise technology to reach out to those that may be isolated or may not have means to visit a physical church at this point…”
“…use the Internet mightily – to spread Your Word across nations, and across the globe…”
