His love in you also means that He will give you eyes to see the heartbreak beneath people’s actions and attitudes that you can’t understand. It means He’s enabled you to love with HIS love.
As we shelter in place, let’s hide our souls in Him. Let’s remember we aren’t alone. Though we’re apart, we—as a ministry—are here for you, just as you are there for us. Furthermore, our faithful Lord is never absent from any of us.

We want you to know how much we care about you. When you send us your prayer requests, we take them seriously, and we have some very special staff members who pray for you. When you let us know about what you’re going through, we share that with one another, and we remember that before the Lord.
The Devil, darkness, and death may swagger and boast, the pangs of life will sting for a while longer, but the forces of evil are breathing their last. So there’s no need to worry...He has risen! He has risen, indeed!
Had Christ not taken a drastic step, sinners like us would’ve never survived the fall. We would never have been rescued. We would be permanently lost. The cross was God’s incredible response to our extreme dilemma. Christ did something radical.
