God,
I have been created from love,
for a life of love,
lived with a God of love.

Guide me by grace,
through faith,
to a new life and mission.
Amen.

Peace and Hope

Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.

And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
Romans 5: 1-5

Spirit

Reflect

In these three truths – God loves; Christ saves; Christ Lives – we see God the Father and God the Son.Wherever they are present, so too is the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit quietly opens our hearts to receive the Truth; to keep alive our hope of salvation. The Holy Spirit flows from the risen Christ and into our lives. The Holy Spirit draws deeper into a relationship with God, so that you can grow in His love, life and power. 

What do you desire? What are you passionate about? St Augustine spoke of this when he said “you have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”The desires of your heart will not be fulfilled by accumulating possessions, spending money, chasing desperately after the things of this world. They will come, and in a much more beautiful and meaningful way; a way that will make you genuinely joyful.

Nothing is more natural or normal than an encounter and relationship with God. Love itself affects your entire life. It guides your every action and motivation. Love is from God, for God is love (1 John 4:8). Love for God, and an experience of His love for you, is an action of the Holy Spirit.  

Are you ready to fall in love with the God of love?


Amen.
