Calling Sinners to Repentance – Love Beyond Boundaries | Day 5

Day 5: Calling Sinners to Repentance I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Luke 5:32 (KJV) Reflection: Jesus’ mission on Earth was crystal clear: to call sinners to repentance. He didn’t come to validate the self-righteous but to offer a way out for those burdened by sin. This mission is now passed on to us. We must reach out to those who are lost, just as someone once reached out to us. Illustration: Imagine a hospital.…

The Sin That Separates – Love Beyond Boundaries | Day 2

Day 2: The Sin That Separates But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Isaiah 59:2 (KJV) Reflection: This verse paints a vivid picture of how sin isolates us from God. It’s not merely a list of wrongs but a chasm that keeps us apart. The separation is both relational and spiritual, hindering not only our fellowship but also our prayers. Illustration: Imagine being…

The God Who Loves – Love Beyond Boundaries | Day 1

Day 1: The God Who Loves For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (KJV) Reflection: The beauty of John 3:16 lies in its universality; “whosoever believeth” means everyone, no exceptions. This is a love without borders or boundaries. God’s love is proactive, illustrated by the giving of His Son to die for our sins. It’s not a love that waits;…
