Our church praying for 40 days for our Take It to the Streets Ministry. Each day will have a scripture reading, a list things to pray for and I will write a quick devotional thought from the day’s passage. The schedule is not original with us but is built off of YouVersion’s Bible App.
– John 3:16-18
These are the most well known verses in the Bible especially when it comes to God’s desire to save the world.
The message is clear…
God’s desire to redeem the world was so important He sent His Son into the world save it.
Now the world has a choice to believe in Jesus and be saved or to not believe and remain in their condemned position.
For us, following the example of Jesus, we are to go into the world not to condemn it but to announce that God has come to save them from this mess. By believing that Jesus came and condemned Himself on our behalf (paying our sin debt in full), opens up the door to have life and begin a relationship with God who loves us enough to provide a way to save us.
It’s truly an amazing thing. So today as we pray let’s thank Him for that and ask Him to help us be effective in getting the message of what He has done out to the world.
– Pray by name for three households on your street that they would come to know Jesus as their savior.
– Pray that God will give you opportunities to share what God has done for you
– Pray for Take 5.2 – as we prepare to give the gospel to our community this Christmas Season
– Pray for Take 13 – our Traveling Trunk or Treat that we will be able to make positive contacts in our community and see people not only come to our church as a result of that connection but also see many come to know Jesus as their Savior.
