Week 1 - Personal Renewal and Salvation for Family (March 20 - 26, 2022)
We continue our Week 1 corporate fast with a focus on personal renewal and salvation. Your love offering this week is for family, friends, coworkers, strangers and those in need. We ask that you give to anyone the Holy Spirit guides you to give to. Pray for all those in need as well as for your personal renewal in your walk with Christ.
Day 5, March 24, 2022 - "Reconciliation and love"
So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. (Matthew 5:23-24)
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. (Romans 12:17-18)
Yesterday we were reminded that our relationships with people directly impact our relationship with God. Today invite the Holy Spirit to again help you honestly
examine your relationships with others. Perhaps you don’t feel unforgiveness towards anyone, but you know of someone that has taken offense with something you said or did. If you know or suspect that you may have caused offense, humble yourself and ask that person forgiveness. Even if you don’t feel you are at fault, ask the Holy Spirit to help you reach out to and reconcile with the person that feels offended. It takes a mature son or daughter of God to put aside their rights to edify those around them in love. Even if the other person chooses not to forgive and be reconciled, the Lord will be greatly pleased with your obedience.
