Jericho – the oldest city continually-inhabited.

If you seek the Lord who is already seeking you, you will not be passed by. Your desire for God can even change His plans.

living from your identity.
World: what you do defines your identity. Your value comes from your productivity.
God: “If you remain in me, you will bear much fruit.” (Identity defines you, then living from that identity produces good works)

All of our sin comes from a corruption of our sense of identity. We forget who we are and whose we are. If we do it long enough we can even seem to lose our identity. We feel disconnected and isolated.
Jesus as the great healer of our souls comes to re-establish our identity and reconnect us with God (the original meaning of the word religion) and with each other.

God wants us. It’s all about this relationship.

Prayer is that daily relationship.
