Dear Lord, I pray for the Bred Pub community as we strive to become a body focused on sharing your Good News with the people you place before us. Please help us to see where your love is desperately needed and equip us to confidently represent you in those places. Lord, I ask that you stretch us past our comfort zones and expose in us the areas of our lives that are barriers to proclaiming and sharing your perfect love. I thank you for the children in the Bred Pub community and how they are painting a picture of what it looks like for your church to gather, laugh, love and pray together – in any setting – with total abandon. I praise you for the doors that have been opened for us to begin this journey and thank you for the people you have called to this place. We are yours and we love you Jesus. Amen.
Challenge: Get to know the people around you – your neighbors, co-workers, restaurant servers and grocery store cashiers. Ask them the simple question “how are you?” and then pay attention to their answer. Is there a way you can love on them or meet a need they have? Find a way to declare that Jesus loves them without even saying a word. Ask God to show you how to serve your community one person at a time.
