Day 33: February 7th, 2019 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.|Matthew 5:14-16
the decision to make it PERSONAL
Prayer focus: Decreased Distractions
A collective offering and a common cause has always been a powerful force on the earth for building unity and resource takes the church forward. There are numerous biblical examples of just this, ranging from the offering for the tabernacle in the wilderness (Exodus 35), to David's collection for the temple (1 Chronicles 22) right through to the early church (Acts 2:42).
When we gather together under the one name of Jesus, for His purposes, we can achieve so much more together than we ever could individually and we are even stronger than the sum of our individual parts.
As a church we are gathering to give collectively that which we have purposed in our heart privately, and set aside prayerfully. One such example of an offering was last year’s Bicentennial Missions Offering, which benefited missionaries across the globe.
Take a moment to commit this day to God personally. Pray also for your fellow believers in Christ, asking the offerings we have given to bless those in need and those striving for His kingdom throughout the world.
