29 Aug Actions Speak Louder Than Words (1 Cor 1:17) by Angi Castle
“Preach the gospel… so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning.” ~ 1 Cor 1:17 (full readings)
Angi’s Reflections: All we have to do is look at the Crucifixion of our Lord and Savior to remind ourselves of its meaning … the pain endured by Christ to save us from our sins. As you look at Christ on the cross, can you even imagine the pain He suffered? His action spoke louder than His Words. Over 3,000 lives are lost every day to abortion. Can you imagine this pain suffered by the Body of Christ? We wear our LIFE Runners jerseys with the simple, yet powerful message, “REMEMBER the Unborn.” It is a message that stirs questions in others. It is a message that brings dignity and hope. It is a message that takes us back to the Cross. We fall to our knees and look at the Crucifixion of our Lord remembering its powerful and life saving meaning. May our actions speak louder than our words as we each move forward to do our part to end abortion.

Faith Challenge: Wear your LIFE Runners jersey this week during a run or when you are out doing errands, but before you do, prepare your heart and mind by reflecting on Christ on the Cross. May we never forget what our Lord and Savior did for us by carrying that Cross on His back, and may we never forget the powerful words we wear on our backs and the responsibility that we each have.
