In this month’s devotional Patricia shares how Love Communities are being built around the world and and how they will grow and fill the earth with His glory.
The Lord is calling forth the building of “Love Communities” within His church. Jesus declared that His people will be known by their love. This will accelerate in manifestation during the next five to ten years as drastic changes will be seen world-wide in church model and structure.
Doing Life Together
Believers will learn to “do life together” and relationship will become more important and carry more value than attending a service. This does not minimize the value of gathering together but the heart of many gatherings will change to become more interactive and relational. Small community groups within the church (example: prophetic, arts, media, worship, prayer, youth, seniors, couples, families) will emerge and bear much fruit as their hearts are knit together in genuine and authentic care. While they find each other in smaller community groups they will also be connected to the larger body. Creativity will increase, faith will increase, God’s tangible presence will increase. Honor, love, and celebration of each other will increase. Deep and lasting relationships will form in this transition as individuals empower one another.
Church, Media and Social Communities
Many who do not attend local church services will connect to the church family through media and social media outlets. God will give creative wisdom to leaders on how to build a “love community” of believers online. Online church members will be equipped, empowered and ministered to electronically and yet they will feel very much apart of the “love community”.
The Word “Community”
The word “community” is going to be used often in the next two years. Community will take on new and expanded definitions as God teaches His children to care for each other in deeper ways and to manifest His love to the world around us. God’s heavenly love community in the glory realm will converge with those who are hungry for relationship in the earth. Love Communities are being built and they will grow and fill the earth with His glory.
Let’s pray and declare that:
- Pray for the Body of Christ to understand the love and unity believers are called to. Psalm 133:1-3; Acts 2:44-47
- Pray for God’s values of love and care to grow within the church. 1 Corinthians 13
- Pray for Leaders to receive wisdom on how to grow “communities” within their churches. James 1:5
- Call forth GRACE and God’s enablement for the transition. Phil 1:13
