28 Day Journey-Day Thirteen

Saturday 12//17//05
13 Here

Passion wants to touch the world, yet we are also asking you to consider allowing God to use you to light your hall. While the GO Center at Passion 06 will highlight our commitment to Mobilization as a lifestyle, going to the nations is not all that’s on our hearts. In fact, it may be easier to cross borders than to cross the apartment complex parking lot to tell someone about Jesus at our own school.

For one, when we make the trek to Asia we only have to hold our spiritual lives together for 10 days. But to connect the dots for a classmate or dorm-mate means we actually have to live the life. By saying that we certainly don't mean it's our perfection that opens the way for others to receive the Gospel. Just that they have to see something real in us before they are going to stop and consider what we have to say.

We are praying many of your will join God’s global adventure because of Passion06, but we are also hoping every one of us will lift our eyes to see that the fields that surround us are desperate for something more.

I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me. Acts 26:17-18

Today’s prayer:
We’d like to challenge you to pray for one person on your campus (or city) that does not know Jesus. Would you make space in your holiday season to pray for them everyday until you are back at school next year. Do something to remind you daily…write on your hand with a Sharpie, wear a rubber band on your wrist or set your phone alarm to keep them in your thoughts day by day.

Lord, I don’t know who else is praying for them, or if anyone ever has. But I am lifting them up to You now. Open their eyes to see how beautiful You are. Expose the empty wells of this life for what they are. Free them from less and allow them to know You, Jesus, so that they may sing the song of those who are alive forever. Amen.

Through the day: Start here.

Update: We received another great report today. Our Community Group leader who has just been diagnosised with cancer, while still undergoing tests, was told that the cancer has not spread rapidly throughout his body. This is great news of God's favor. We continue to pray for God's mercy and goodness as further evaluation is done and a course of treatment begins.

  • Lord, I pray that we would open our eyes to the opportunities right before us each and every day. Tune our hearts to You, so that we see these people who need You and are burdened in such a way that we share our lives and love for You with them. I pray specifically for Heather. I thank you that you have placed her right across the hall. I pray that next semester that You will deepen our relationship and that she will be able to see You. Work on her heart Lord during this break. I thank you Lord for the amazing things You are doing and want to do us amoung us.
