GPW Minute for 6/17: Hope from Genesis - Baptismal

Genesis and Baptismal Wellbeing A WORD FROM THE LORD When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot passed between the pieces. On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram. Genesis 15:17-18 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT Abram sat passively while God affirmed the covenant of his undying love, just as you were a passive receiver of God’s grace in baptism. WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “I rejoice today, Holy Spirit, in the blessing of grace poured out on me in my baptism. Remind throughout this day of Your undying love. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the covenant of grace in baptism. MARKER OF WELLBEING: Baptismal As I grow in God’s grace of Baptismal LOVE, I am finding joy in my IDENTITY as His new creation in Christ.
