Day 1: Heart for Our City

Day 1: Luke 9:51-56

Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said “Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”. But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” And they went to another village.

As I think on our wonderful city, I think of all things that make it so wonderful. From the food, to the cultures, to families. These are the things that make our city so awesome. Our Heart should be for Our City. Just as Jesus’ Heart was for Jerusalem, ours should be the same for San Antonio. If we are to have a Heart for the House, we must have a heart for our city that it is in. For Life Point, is and always will continue to be a light in the city of San Antonio. Let us pray this week so that our Hearts are prepared to shine the Light of God’s Love in San Antonio.
