— Acts 2:17
As those living in the last days, each believer — young and old, male and female — must be Spirit-led and Spirit-empowered to give our personal testimony to the grace of God given us in Jesus Christ. As Jesus prayed for us before his death (John 17:20-23), we must be united across gender barriers, age barriers, and racial barriers as God’s children (Galatians 3:26-29) if the world is ever to truly know that he sent his Son as Savior for all people of our world!
God of all nations, please help us break down the barriers that divide us. Jesus helped us understand that our division blunts the beautiful message of your grace. Please pour your Spirit upon us and convict us of our prejudice and selfishness. Replace them with your transcending love displayed in our unity. Forgive us, forgive me, when shortsighted selfishness interferes with the world seeing your united people proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
