CAW: Call

Christian Aid Week 2023

Day Four

Something to read

I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, and for this reason I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may perceive what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power.

- Ephesians 1:15-19.

A special series of Daily Bible Readings

It's Christian Aid Week 2023. During this week, we will use the Daily Bible Reading space to invite you to reflect on our work in Malawi and to discern connections between that work and a short passage of scripture. Our readings will be shorter than usual. We hope that this will give you time to explore our Christian Aid Week resources to help shape your daily prayers.

Today's passage offers an expansive, exhilarating, wonderful account of the 'inheritance' we are called to. What does it mean to apply these words from Ephesians to ourselves? How can we enter into what God is calling us to, here and now? What would it mean to live as people who look forward to this 'glorious inheritance' as children of God?

Pray for wisdom to discern how you can respond to God's call.
