A new beginning
Our spiritual retreat ends today, but we hope that you've experienced the kind of refreshment and renewal in your soul that compels you to keep going further and digging deeper into God's Word. We'll keep the main site live in case there's anything you'd like to rewatch or keep working through. Your final Community Care opportunity is a random act of kindness, so go make the world a better place! Jesus is Lord!
Rev. Tom Albin's fifth morning meditation is from John 1:43-50, which describes Jesus calling two disciples: Nathanael and Philip.
43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.”
44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
Is there a particular word, phrase, or mental image that stands out to you from the reading?
How does the passage resonate with you? Do you have a certain feeling or emotional connection?
Do you feel a call to action? How will you respond to the text?
Today for your prayer time, reflect on all the things you've learned this week and thank God for His leading, guiding, and directing in your life.
