Want to get more out of your Sunday morning worship? Want an easy way to do daily devotionals wherever you are?
Connecting with God daily through scripture is one of the most important ways to experience renewal in your spiritual life.
The Gospel of John contains more post-resurrection encounters than any other Gospel. These encounters were important to those who had been with Jesus for three years. Though Jesus had tried to prepare his disciples for what was to come, their world had been turned upside down by the death of their teacher and friend. Even though Jesus was alive, he was still physically absent. His friendship, his teaching, his ministry had been the center of their lives for many years. The post-resurrection encounters with Jesus helped his disciples to understand their call to ministry as Jesus’ agents in the world. Jesus commissions his disciples and us by these words: “As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” Like the disciples then, we are those sent by Jesus to participate in his ongoing work in the world in the power of the Holy Spirit.
For the next 40 days, our church will be in a significant period as we launch our Ignite Initiative. We will continue to explore John as we reflect on God’s desire to send us into the world to share God’s love and vision. We want God to spark hope and ignite a brighter future for our church as we pray and prepare for how he wants to use us to love the Lord and love the people; serve the Lord and serve the people.
