Ephesians 1:18a (NIV)
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you…
“The history of the church has never been about the great men and women of God, it’s always been about the great God of men and women… If God delights to use the weak then it means he delights to use you and he delights to use us.” [Pilavachi and Croft, Everyday Supernatural, 67, 71]
Hope and calling are practically synonymous in Paul’s prayer for the early church. Our great God has and is calling his church into something greater, which is both his work and our life’s hope. From the start, whether AMC, ALC, AHC, EccParis, EccNYC, God has taken ordinary people to bring about his plans and has involved us in his work. This is the supernatural hope that has been our history, but it’s also evident with how we’re living right now as churches for what’s ahead.
Today, as you worship to “There’s Nothing That Our God Can’t Do” by Passion, take time to pray Ephesians 1:18 for each of the Agapé churches and that God would use each as harvest workers for their respective locations. (Click Here)
Prayer: Lord, thank you for this life’s hope of being a part of your kingdom work. Use us for your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
