#4972 – The Church

Good morning people who are part of God’s expression of love on the earth.

Father, I thank You for the church.

Matthew 16:18 NIV And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

Ephesians 5:25 NIV Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

The church is Jesus’ church, and it is His bride.

Thank You Father that we – the church – are Your chosen vessel to display Your glory and to demonstrate Your grace on the earth.

Thank You Father that the church is Your design.

Although not perfect, the church is being beautified and made glorious for Your son’s return.

I pray that You help me to deeply love the church and to do my part in seeing Her strengthened and whole.
