GPWellness Minute 4/20: Grace Covers Ministry Efforts!

Easter Means Grace and Peace! Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of The JOY of Grace covering my ministry efforts A WORD FROM THE LORD On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” John 20:19 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT All of our efforts at ministry are smudged with our fingerprints, but Jesus is at work in His Word, transforming lives. We “sin boldly” and continue on with confidence in the One who speaks “Peace” and sends us as He sent the Apostles. WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “You know, dear Lord, how inadequate I am for the tasks You have assigned, so go with me, speak and act in my imperfect words and deeds, to the glory of Your name. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for The Joy of Grace that covers my acts of service. MARKER OF WELLBEING: Vocational As I grow in God’s grace of Vocational GENTLENESS, I am finding joy in HUMILITY as I serve through my calling and gifts.
