ToGather: Freed to Serve

Jesus paid the price to free us from sin, death, and hell so we could serve others in love.

But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.
— Deuteronomy 4:29

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When was the last time you truly searched after God? I'm not talking about an obscure theological insight about God or another best selling book about God. When was the last time you sought after the Father so that you could know him better and appreciate him more? Let's open our hearts and go on the Great Quest to find God. Like the prodigal son in Luke 15, we will find he's waiting and watching for us to come home!

My Prayer...

Precious Heavenly Father, majestic in glory, awesome in might, and ever near with your loving presence, please bless me with a deeper and more personal knowledge and experience of you in my life. Until the day I can see you face to face in heaven, please draw me closer and closer to you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
