Commentary on this Week’s Prayer
What motivates you to seek after God and journey in obedience to his will? Do you fear that if you don’t live up to his will that your eternal life is in peril? If Isaiah says fear not! God’s love is unconditional, we only need to respond to that love by caring for others. That freedom is awesome!
