Community is built on the conviction that I need others for spiritual health. ~ Proverbs 27:17
SO... have you spent time today with Jesus?
1 John 3:16-18 By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
- If so, trust that He has equipped you to launch out on missional living today... look for and seize those divine appointments around you.
- If not, don't waste any more time feeling guilty or coming up with the perfect excuse... just STOP! Close your eyes... voice to God you are sorry and ask for a heart to know Him more today. Open your eyes... take a deep breath... and then make the next right choice! Blessings!
