Sunday mornings can go at a fast and furious pace. If we aren’t strategic, we can miss key relational connections. Gather your team of volunteers for a brief gathering before the serving begins. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion before praying for the day:
Even though the centurion was powerful, having full command over an army, he still needed help. His servant was sick and he knew that Jesus could help him. We can learn a lot from this centurion whose faith astounded Jesus. No matter how self sufficient we might feel, ultimately, we are limited in what we can do and in how much we can handle. Thankfully, we can always call on Jesus to help us. As you prepare to lead your small group this week, remember that Jesus is ready to help. No problem you face is too big or too small for him and He cares about it all. Jesus wants to help you because you are dearly loved. Who loves you? [Bottom Line] Jesus loves you.
