Loving God

We have launched a new series called 'Loving God'that we are praying the Holy Spirit will use in power. Romans 5 v5 'God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us' This pouring out of love was a fulfillment of the prayer request of Jesus to the Father in John 17 v26 'I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.' Our vision is not functional but relational - it doesn't matter where we are it only matters who we are with and Jesus wants us to know by the power of the Holy Spirit the love of the Father. It is that love of the Father that will sustain and empower and motivate us into all ministry. Just as the Lost Son in Luke 15 returned to the loving arms of a father so are we called to make that same return - we may feel unworthy but he will call us 'son'or'daughter' and when we know the embrace of the Father then His love will spill over to others. Pray that we all get a fresh revelation of Jesus, a new empowering of the Holy Spirit and a deep joy in the intimate presence of our loving Father God.
