Day 4: Power and Presence of God

Matthew 28:18 (NIV)
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”

“So Jesus is King. We’re not waiting around to be whisked off into heaven. The kingdom and the King has arrived to us and he is present among us as a gathered people and church. The church is a unique footprint on earth where the kingdom is expressed in the present. Jesus is King in this place, Jesus is Lord in this place. And wherever Jesus is King, the blessing and the benefits of the kingdom break into that realm.

How do we experience this more? Faith and prayer are given to us as means to experience the blessings and the benefits of the kingdom of God. Gathering with God’s people in worship is a means for us to experience the power and the presence of God. Worship and reading the Scriptures becomes a means for us to experience the power and the presence of God.” (P. Ed’s message)

Pray in faith for our upcoming Sunday worship and various ministry meetings, for a greater experience of King Jesus and his kingdom activity present among us.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, we worship you. We declare you are the King present in our midst. In faith and anticipation, we ask to experience more of your authority and presence among us, especially as we are together this Sunday. Lead us to exercise all the ways you have given to us to experience you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
