02ReadIcon Read…  Isaiah 43:1-4

Now this is what the Lord says.
    He created you, people of Jacob.
    He formed you, people of Israel.

He says, “Don’t be afraid, because I have saved you.
     I have called you by name, and you are mine.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.
     When you cross rivers, you will not drown.

When you walk through fire, you will not be burned.
    The flames will not hurt you.

This is because I, the Lord, am your God.
    I, the Holy One of Israel, am your Savior…

You are precious to me.
    I give you honor, and I love you.

03TalkIcon Talk…While these words were first spoken to Israel, read them again as God’s words to you.Take turns this week reading them to each other on God’s behalf:

Now this is what the Lord says.
    He created you, people of Jacob.
    He formed you, people of Israel.

He says, “Don’t be afraid, because I have saved you.
     I have called you by name, and you are mine.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.
     When you cross rivers, you will not drown.

When you walk through fire, you will not be burned.
    The flames will not hurt you.

This is because I, the Lord, am your God.
    I, the Holy One of Israel, am your Savior…

You are precious to me.
    I give you honor, and I love you.

How does God’s affirmation of his love for you shape help you through the day? Through your lows? Through your highs?

Pray… For each other, for those you love, for your church, for your fellow students or coworkers, that they might experience being rooted in God’s grace through Christ.
Bless… End your time by making the sign of the cross on each other and saying these words: May the Lord bless you and keep you.
