In light of the 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 taught that abundant, resurrected life is life with Him. This life has broken into this world even as we wait for the day when death is no longer a present reality. So we pursue life and flourishing—in our bodies, our relationships with others, and this world—living as a resurrection people toward the promised end when all creation is made new.
After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about what life and flourishing looks like in the ministry God has called you to. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.
