Every Soul Matters
Every soul matters to me. I love every person, and the diversity of this planet’s nations and cultures is a beautiful symphony, singing streams of melodies that reflect my character, plans, and all my promises. I make the nations lie down in green pastures. I lead all peoples beside the quiet rivers of my living water. I restore the purpose and beauty of every tribe back to my sovereign plans and destiny designs so they will experience the joy of my heavenly kingdom.
Yes, the nations are broken, and many remain lost and wandering without clear vision. Yet, my salvation work is finished, and hope remains for those who search for and surrender to me. When you see rebellion, remember that I am your Compassionate Redeemer. When you see pain and suffering, remember that I am your Comforting Shepherd and Fortress of Peace. When you see death, remember that I am your Everlasting Father and Resurrection Life.
Every soul matters, so love your neighbors from every nation. Identify anyone you do not love, and ask me to birth pure affection for them inside your soul. Trust in me with all your heart, and surrender your plans to me. Invite me to fight your battles, and release your faith in my victory. I have planted my Holy Spirit in you, and he will navigate you through every storm into my Promised Land. What is impossible with mankind is available through my power divine.

Faithful Friends > Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus. When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” (Luke 5:18-20)
Merciful Compassion > When the Pharisees saw Jesus eating with sinners, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Matthew 9:10-13)
Living Bread > Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” “Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.” Then Jesus declared, “I am the Living Bread. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:32-35)
Prayer > Heavenly Father, thank you for teaching us that every soul matters. Help us to be faithful friends to all nations and peoples. We will bring our family, friends, and neighbors to you to experience your love, receive your freedom, and rest in your glorious grace. Amen.
