1 Corinthians 15:1-2 (living faith)

17 Sep 1 Corinthians 15:1-2 (living faith)

* Welcome God every morning before your work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (life-devotions.blogspot.com), which has snippets from Living Faith (livingfaith.com). All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

I am reminding you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you indeed received and in which you also stand. Through it you are also being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you… 1 Corinthians 15:1-2

Living Faith snippets: “The idea that salvation is taking place right now, but is not complete fits well with my own experience. It explains the growth as well as the persistent presence of sin in my life. I think the heart of Jesus continually draws us in, sets us free, heals our wounds and deals with our occasional failures to “hold fast.” I pray that this process will go on and on and on.” by Mark Neilsen

Rich’s comments: Man cannot save himself. Salvation comes from God’s grace through faith in Christ. God’s grace grows within us as we trust in God more and follow His commandments. One cannot expect to profess their faith once and then be eternally secure, while living a life of disobedience towards God. One must live out this faith their entire life. Hence, the name of our Christian daily devotion “Living Faith.”

Faith Quote: “The fruit of silence is prayer. The fruit of prayer is faith. The fruit of faith is love. The fruit of love is service. The fruit of service is peace.” by Mother Teresa (The Simple Path)

Through Christ Our Lord,
Romans 12:12

* Today’s Bible readings at www.usccb.org/nab/today.shtml. Reflection on readings at http://www.daily-meditations.org/index2.html
* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, thereby changing us & helping others. Wayne Watson lyrics, “When God’s people pray, there is hope reborn, there is sin forgiven, and miracles you can’t explain await!” “If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead & see Him.”
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might lie as you wish’ Blessed Mother Teresa. Prayer to End Abortion. Ask Blessed Margaret of Castello for her prayers to end abortion.
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for non-believers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.
Let’s joyfully live out the Good News and gladly tell others about it (Mark 16:15)!
