Day 15 - 21 Day Fast

Day 15 - Pray for Reconciliation

Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 2:11, Acts 10:34-35, Galatians 3:28, Revelation 7:9

God created all of humanity in His image (Genesis 1:26-27). That means all of us are more alike than we are different. Everyone, of every race or ethnicity, is created by God and reflects His workmanship. 

What we need more than anything is to appreciate our differences and listen to each other’s experiences, knowing that we each have something to show the other about God.  

Our internal bond as brothers and sisters in Christ is greater than any external difference (Galatians 3:28). One day, we will all worship Jesus together — people of every tribe, nation, and tongue. And as a church, we get the unique opportunity to pursue that kind of uncommon unity right here, right now.

  • What does God teach us about Himself through our differences?

  • Where might you need to confess bias toward another person or group? 

  • Ask God to bring healing where there has been hurt, to bring reconciliation where there has been division, and to give each of us the boldness to go deeper with people who are not like us. 

  • Are you willing to let God make you an instrument of healing? Give yourself time to listen as the Holy Spirit shows steps you can take this week to bring reconciliation to your spheres of influence.
