In light of each day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.
Jesus inaugurated the work of new creation, and the writers of the New Testament encouraged the early Church to hold firmly to Jesus’s example. Now, believers are called to live as participants in God’s work of making all things new in anticipatory hope of what’s to come.
After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about how you can participate in God’s restorative work because of the hope you have in Christ. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.
