Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love
31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?
2 Peter 1:3 (NLT)
Growing in Faith
3 By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.
Forgive us for selfishly clinging to our meager possessions rather than imitating you, Jesus, and trusting you will give us everything we need as we seek you & forgive us for our sin, oh God: stinginess, ungratefulness, and selfishness.
Matthew 6:33 (NLT)
33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
A harvest in Europe/Eurasia
Psalm 86:9 (NLT)
9 All the nations you made
will come and bow before you, Lord;
they will praise your holy name.
PRAY: for God’s believers to move away from the world’s system, pray for the body of Christ to reach out in generosity to those in need & for the bible to be accessible & readable in all languages.
FROM PRAYER TO MISSION:
Turn from Greed to Generosity:
Create a homemade gift or make food and give it to a neighbor or someone you wouldn’t normally give to or give a monetary gift anonymously.
2 Corinthians 9:10 (NLT)
10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.
