praying for missions {week 35}

John 14:15
If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
Our enemy tries to trick us into disobedience, promising that what we're looking for can actually be attained more quickly, more securely by following the world's way. Obedience requires following God's way in faith, trusting that what he says is true and that his way is best. The enemy came to steal, kill, and destroy. Jesus came that we may have abundant life! (John 10:10) It is clear whom we should follow -- and we have already decided. What is left is to obey.

Pray that we love and obey God.
