Come, Holy Spirit.
When Jesus asked His disciples if they too would leave, they responded, “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.”
Ask the Holy Spirit to make these words of the disciples the prayer of your own heart. Ponder on it in His Presence at MAGNIFY and take these moments to turn to God with your own loneliness, fears, frustrations, and feelings. Allow yourself to encounter God as an intimate friend to whom you can go.
See you and your family, friends, neighbors, roommate on Wednesday. Don’t forget to invite them. Why? Because Jesus took on flesh out of love for the world, but His love for everyone is personal and individual. Jesus loves each person and calls them each by name. He desires to be in relationship with every person.
Jesus’ love is always personal.
He knows every person’s name and continually chooses them, despite their sins and failings. Jesus’ call empowers us. Like He did for Lazarus, Jesus calls each person out of their tomb— out of what binds them and into a fuller life. He calls them because He loves them.
We hope to see everyone at Magnify.
