Greetings from Austin Street
TGIF Today God is First! All is well here at 811. I went back to work today and Bruce is still at work as I write. And tomorrow we will travel to the final Kairos Team Meeting prior to the long weekend event. Please lift up the team as we travel and the participants as they are selected to be a part of this weekend. Thank you so very much.
The candle is lit…
Dear God, when you open a door, no room is small. Thank you for all my opportunities to share Your Word of salvation and grace. I could never begin to measure the depth of your love, but Lord I thank you for it. Help me to trust the height and depth of Your love and to share it with those who need to hear it. Lord, I lift up the team that prepares to go in I ask you to inspire them with your Word. Help us who support them and the participants to remain in prayer for your spiritual graces to go before those who deliver Your Word and openness of spirits to those who will receive it. We all love you so much Lord and want to serve you as you see fit. In Jesus name, amen.
I opened my meditation tonight and the title is “Open Every Door.” There are so many opportunities to share God’s Word and the forgiving grace that God offers because of His great love for us. I know it may be hard but praying for opportunities and occasions to be a witness for God through faith in Jesus is what God wants us to do so His message of love will be spread. If we pray for this God will provide opportunities for us to witness. Sometimes this witness will happen out of our own experiences with our loving God. Sometimes our witness happens in Christian Action when we help others in some way. But I think the best way we can witness is to live our lives as fully as possible and when the opportunity comes before us to share God’s love we need to bravely and faithfully walk in the door as God leads us. This is what the Kairos Prison Ministry does. They walk through the doors of the prison and share the gospel in a place where hope is not very present and trust is all but non-existent. God presents this opportunity for His grace and love to be in the lives of those who have little hope and walk in places of darkness. It is really hard for us to realize how amazingly powerful and profound God’s love is for us. Just imagine how overwhelming this love must be for those who feel so unloved. God is good and love wins.
[Pray] that God will open us to us a door for the word so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ.”
Colossians 4: 3
“I have set before you and open door; and no one can shut it.”
Revelation 3: 8
Take joy in the journey praying as you go and do not miss an opportunity to share the gospel. When God opens the door walk in and He will meet you there. Wear comfortable shoes and get some sleep. Love you all, Bruce and Gaylene
