Acts 3:6 (Spring cleaning!)

07 Apr Acts 3:6 (Spring cleaning!)

Let’s welcome God today with this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (archive, Facebook), based on Living Faith. Prove yourselves doers of the Word, and not merely hearers. James 1:22

Peter said, “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, [rise and] walk.” Acts 3:6 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “Lately, I have been purging. Recent experiences of loss as well as a move in the offing have made cleaning out more important. I am trying to figure out what I have that is worth keeping and, when the time comes, passing on to others. Whatever speaks of God’s lasting love, mercy and peace seems to be the answer. Lord Jesus, fill me with your love so that I might share it.” Amy Welborn

Pat nugget: Heart Of Worship.

Faith Challenges: Let’s generously share the LIFE Group by forwarding devotions or using the Facebook “invite people” link.
* NEW: What needs to be purged in your life (spiritual Spring cleaning)? Consider sharing your devotion thoughts on the Facebook page, to be appreciated by many.

* Never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images), #1 cause of death in America (23% of pregnancies)…courageously share ProLife Truth to expose abortion’s unjust peace, rebuilding a Culture of Life for setting the unborn (and parents) free.
* NEW: Lutheran Pastor Defends Pope Against Attacks over Sex Abuse Crisis

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together, and close to God (footnotes). Peters family (JP), Prayer to end abortion, Stephanie Kemp (special intention), Helene Couchon (healing)

Faith Quote: “May young people discover in the heart of Christian homes the high noble ideals that will alleviate their deep-seated anxiety and protect them from the temptations of a culture devoid of solidarity or horizons, one that irreversibly leads to emptiness and discouragement.” Pope John Paul II

Through Christ our Lord,
Phil 4:13

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead.
* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that take our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, pornography, bitterness, criticalness, impatience, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).
* 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 live as you wish’ (Blessed Mother Teresa).
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (be a friend, make a friend, lead a 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 (Matt 28:19).
