To live a life of repentance
For strength to practice the ways of Christ
For the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit
Today’s text: Romans 10:14-21
I LOVE YOU, and the one who hears those words must respond, but for both their world is changed. In three simple words, their lives are made different, regardless of the response. Will the beloved affirm that love, return that sentiment, or say no? Will the lover be joyous or despondent? Such is the power of even simple words!
God’s word is more powerful still; his word brings freedom, joy, healing, life. God’s word upends tribes and nations, stills armies and war, brings peace and possibility. God’s word turns neighbors to each other, creates love out of hate, grows generosity in the human heart.
God’s word creates faith.
I love you, says God and our worlds are forever changed.
May your day be grace-filled ~ Pr. Dave Brooks
