As we prepare our hearts to celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection this coming Good Friday and Easter, we, at Faith Bible Church, want to be intentional about drawing close to God and seeking Him during this season of Lent. Join us as we pray together during this season.
Ephesians 2:10 (NIV) – For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
From Luke McMeans - Jesus chose to honor His Father even when it was not easy or glamorous. As we spend time focusing on Jesus’ sacrifice, it’s important to remember that God has also called us to follow Him with everything we have. We can find peace in knowing that God has prepared our acts of obedience before we arrive at them. He is completely sovereign! His perfect love, displayed for us in Christ, is a promise of His blessing and care that casts out all of our fears and reservations.
- Pray for God to show you opportunities to do good works. Ask Him to remove distractions or barriers that keep you from serving Him by serving others.
- Tell God about the fears or doubts you have concerning His plan for your life. Pray that He would show you how He has already provided for those needs, and ask for His strength in the areas where you lack faith or obedience.
