We’re counting down to LOVE Week 2015 with a prayer each day in celebration and anticipation of what God will do through us this July 25-August 1.
Remember, Jesus did not leave heaven and come to earth to enforce limitations – he came to liberate. To rescue us from ourselves and our sinful state.
Psalm 91:14-16 says
“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
Pray with us: Jesus, thank you for the way you come to our rescue. Help us to empty ourselves of who we think we are, and who we pretend to be, so that we can be filled with your love. Help us then to give of ourselves so we can bring your hope into the world. Less of us. More of you. Thank you for reminding us you are mighty to save. Help us this day to embrace and appreciate this incredible gift.
In this recap from our 2013 series “This Is Your Permission Slip,” Pastor Steven introduces a paradigm-shifting concept about the true purpose of scripture and how Jesus changed the way we approach God.
