{ Day 80 }

Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." —Matthew 22:37-40

A few believers say, "Draw me," but resist running with the Lord as a partner with Him in His work in the earth. The Holy Spirit does not draw us so we can hang up a "Do Not Disturb" sign and sit in our little comfort zone, only singing love songs to Jesus the rest of our lives. As fellow heirs with Christ, we are drawn into intimacy, and then empowered in ministry to bring others into intimacy with the Lord. The church will surely mature in the tension of drawing and running. We will learn how to deliver broken people, prevail in spiritual warfare and serve one another while maintaining our intimacy with Jesus.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, draw me into an intimate relationship with You so that I may be empowered to draw others unto You. I want to bring Your deliverance to broken people. I want to prevail in spiritual warfare as others learn to turn their hearts and lives over to You.

Being drawn into deep intimacy with Jesus and running
in servanthood ministry fulfill the two great commandments
Jesus gave in Matthew 22:37-40.
