Monday August 11 – God’s way: His church
Come and worship
Jesus, the Head of the Church and the source of life and leadership for all believers everywhere. Colossians 1:15-20.
Meditate on His Word Ephesians 3:7-11, 5:25-27
…so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. Ephesians 3:10
Christ loves His Church. It was made for Him, and by Him- through His sacrifice
and blood. It is now sustained by Him, cleansed and made pure by His abiding love. Whatever people may say about the Church, it was, and still is, God’s way to reach a hurting world. It was, and still is, a beautiful thing- made and sustained for His glory.
Reflect and give thanks
Take time to reflect on what you have seen the Lord doing at Imprint church. Give Him thanks for the evidence of His Spirit at work in us. Think of the service and outreach that has been spearheaded in our community by churches reaching out in love. Thank the Lord for the multitude of ways His love shines through His Church.
To be present with our brothers and sisters in Christ who gather to worship in other buildings here in Woodinville;
To renew His church that we may display the character of Christ in our community,
To rekindle a love of His Word in the hearts of His people,
To call His people to prayer that we may hear His voice and follow faithfully.
Lord Jesus, may Your Word to be preached with power and authority in churches across this region.
