Love is lived out. Love is not just a declaration. It is commitment in action. That God feels love for us is absolutely amazing. It is humbling. He's always seeking to shape our lives by His love and he's patient and kind with us. One thing that God can really challenge us on is whether our Christian lives show something different which is worth living for.
We are getting excited about Thy Kingdom Come 2020!
Between 21st May and 31st May 2020, millions of Christians across the world will unite in praying that more people come to know the amazing love of Jesus Christ.
Please will you us here in Somerset and promise to pray for just FIVE people to come to know Jesus Christ! Get those prayer muscles going -and -Pray for FIVE!
Here in the Ilminster Deanery and widely across the Bath & Wells Diocese we will be praying for our families, friends and neighbours. Together we will be joining in prayers in encouraging and innovative ways. Praying especially that more people will come to know the wholesome, loving, healing power of Christ's love.
If you have ideas on ways to share how to pray for family, friends and neighbours for them come to know Jesus, then why not send them to me and they will be shared on this page.
Watch this space for dates to share ideas for prayer.
