We want to be wise stewards of all that God has so generously provided us – as individuals, as families, and as a church. As we re-purpose the Community Resource Center to more intentionally serve the needs of our community, ask, “Lord, what do you want me/us to give to help fulfill your will to meet the needs of people in our growing and changing community?”
Your verse of the day resumes tomorrow! One week left!
The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!” The man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”Luke 10:27-29 NLT
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed.Isaiah 61:1 NLT
Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.Ephesians 4:1-3 NLT
We live in a multi-cultural world and a diverse community. Pray that as Mariners Church we will sacrificially love the immigrant and the refugee – as image-bearers of God – giving of our abundance and advocacy to serve the needs of those whose language we may not speak and whose skin color and customs might be different than our own.
