The line from the sermon that kept coming back to me as I wrote it and since Sunday morning is, “I wonder how many of us want the benefits of Jesus’ Kingdom, but do not want Him as King.” Of course, I was thinking of myself. Today, for example, I am struggling with some of the changes the Lord brought my way. I would prefer that things stay the same. The Lord has other plans, and I’m fighting it. Do I trust that He is a good and capable ruler of my life?
How to pray for FBC
Let’s pray that all the ornaments are purchased for Light Up South Ward. This is the last Sunday. Pray also that the students and teachers at South Ward will experience God’s love through this outreach.
How to pray for our Community and our World
I continue to pray that the Lord will use this Christmas season to reach into the hearts of people who do not know Him. I am praying that songs and stories about Jesus will open opportunities with our neighbors, co-workers, and families. I am praying that it creates questions for the people our missionaries work to reach.
