ToGather: Freed to Serve

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

Through him [Jesus] God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him.

And I remind you of the angels who did not stay within the limits of authority God gave them but left the place where they belonged.
— Colossians 1:16 NLT & Jude 1:6 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I praise You as Creator of all the kingdoms—even in the unseen. Some followed Satan in rebellion and no longer obey You. Help me not to follow their rebellious ways. Help me to recognize their schemes and plans against me, Lord, and stay loyal to You and all Your commands in my daily walk. In Jesus Name, Amen.
