Here is today’s challenge from Pastor Matt’s blog…
The Death of Hope
Luke 23:50-56 “Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea and he was waiting for the kingdom of God. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.”
As we prepare for Hillsong London tonight, pray that God will use this concert to draw people to Him. Pray for those that are coming tonight that do not know Christ but are simply coming to attend a concert. Pray that God will meet them right where they are and they will begin a relationship with Him. Pray also for Barefoot Weekend and for those receiving the shoes that will be collected this weekend. Pray that God will use a simple pair of shoes to give someone hope and remind them that they are not forgotten and that Jesus loves them. Pray for lives to be changed this weekend as we continue our Walk To The Cross Series.
