Poplar Grove AME "Love Challenge"
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
(Lamentations 3:22-23) (Pastor and First Lady McIntyre)
Speak these declarations aloud daily as the Holy Spirit leads you!
I decree and declare I will do everything in love because of Christ Jesus! I decree and declare I will speak, act, and pray only in love! 1 Corinthians 13:13 Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God’s love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love.
I decree and declare I will be delivered from the spirit of fear and rejection and over taken by my Father’s love! I decree and declare I am not an orphan but a son/ daughter of the Most High Priest, Jesus Christ!
1 John 4:18-19 New Living Translation (NLT)
18 There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love]. 19 We love, because He first loved us.
I decree and declare I will experience Christ in a whole new way! I decree and declare I will embrace the hope Christ is calling me into!
John 3:16-18 The Message (MSG)
16-18 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.
