OLD LABELS DIE HARD
January 7, 2018
Pastor Shawn Hubert
So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when He adopted you as His own children.
Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”
Roman 8:15 (NLT)

We thank You for bringing us into this new year,
and we pray that in 2018 our hearts would be fully attentive
to what You have to say to us.
Father, this year we ask that You would help us to grow in our faith and our walk with You.
We pray that Your Spirit would strengthen us in our gifts,
and that as we use them, they would bear fruit for Your glory.
We pray for Pastors Shawn and Dan who will be speaking to us this month.
Empower them through Your Spirit to bring us into the presence of Jesus.
And help us to listen carefully so that we hear what You are saying and can put it into practice.
Jesus, we pray that 2018 would be a year marked by growth, faith, and action.
Help us to pay careful attention to You so that we do not drift away.
In Your name we pray, amen.
