I’m asking God to give you a gift from the wealth of his glory. I pray that he would give you inner strength and power through his Spirit. Then Christ will live in you through faith. I also pray that love may be the ground into which you sink your roots and on which you have your foundation. This way, with all of God’s people you will be able to understand how wide, long, high, and deep his love is. You will know Christ’s love, which goes far beyond any knowledge. I am praying this so that you may be completely filled with God. Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power he can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Glory belongs to God in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time and eternity! Amen.
(Ephesians 3:16-21 GW)
If you haven’t seen War Room yet. I would encourage you to see it. It is a movie that probably should be in every Church Library and seen at the beginning of every year by Church groups and congregations. Why? Because of the focus on prayer. If you’re a prayer warrior. You may think you know what the movie is about. And it’s probably going to shock you when it turns out to be something much more valuable than you thought it would be.
It seems that there are a few targeted areas right now in ministry. Prayer, Understanding the Love of God, and Healing Revivals. We need to pray and we need to understand the Love of God so perfect Love can cast out the fear.
No fear exists where his love is. Rather, perfect love gets rid of fear, because fear involves punishment. The person who lives in fear doesn’t have perfect love. We love because God loved us first. Whoever says, “I love God,” but hates another believer is a liar. People who don’t love other believers, whom they have seen, can’t love God, whom they have not seen. Christ has given us this commandment: The person who loves God must also love other believers. (1 John 4:18-21 GW)
It is so much easier to receive the benefits of all Jesus paid for on the cross when we have no fear.
This is going to be an exciting Journey into discovering the God kind of Love and what does that look like in everyday life.
