PURSUING GOD for 21 Days

main image

Are you seeking to make a full commitment to God in 2020? We have an excellent course charted for us at Shalimar United Methodist Church. How exciting it is to begin 2020 at 6:00 am with 21 days of worship, prayer, and fasting!

As we begin the new year, we will draw daily from the Gospel of John for daily inspiration from God’s Word. The Gospel of John has 21 chapters so we will read one each day as a congregation. The Gospel includes one life changing story after another. Some persons are PURSUED by Jesus while others PURSUE Jesus. These persons include Nicodemus, the woman at the well, the man at the Pool of Bethesda, and many more. In the next few days, I encourage you to pick up a devotional guide (by Rev. Faith Parry) from the Narthex or the back of the FLC so you will be ready to begin. You can also download one from the SUMC website!

Do you have a desire for a fresh start? Do you seek to submit your life, health, relationships, and plans to the Lord? Have you lost control over your weight or finances? Is your life spinning out of control? 21 Days of worship, prayer, and fasting is a way to put new habits in place. These 21 days offer us a chance to encourage one another in our growth as Jesus’ disciples.

As a Church, we will seek the Holy Spirit to revive us, renew us, unify us, and live Ephesians 3:23, “God is able to do immeasurably more than we think or imagine.” We will seek to fully commit our Church Body to the power of the Holy Spirit in 2020! We trust the rest to the Lord.

Happy New Year and blessings on all as we begin 2020! I look forward to making this journey with you in the upcoming 21 days, January 6-26th!
