Forgiveness and healing are two things we all should crave. These joys come not simply to individuals but to the entire community. When we plant the seeds of renewal we reap God’s spiritual blessings.
Renewal is not simply doing the right things. Renewal also means we cease doing the wrong things. It means ridding our lives of those things that dishonour the Lord.
Seeking the face of God comes from a passion to know God and to see Him work in your life and community. Do you have a sincere vision for God and His glory?
Jesus’ disciples observed the prayer life of Jesus and said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray.” They understood that communion with God always involved prayer. Prayer expresses simple faith in God and it is the means God uses to bring about renewal.
An essential element of humility is our attitude before God and our willingness to trust our very lives to His care and protection. This is biblical brokenness and surrender.
Humility is the root of every Christian virtue. It characterized the life of Christ and it must characterize His people as well. Genuine spiritual renewal is impossible without humility.
Renewal starts by understanding who we are and why we are here! If we are truly God’s people, we have an identity and a purpose, which determines and gives focus to our passion.
