“Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” ~ Acts 7:59 (full readings)

Rich’s Reflections: “On the second day of Christmas, my true Love (Jesus) gave to me” … a deeper share in His love. Jesus gave us His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, so that we may love as He loved. “The love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us” (Romans 5:5).  Coincidentally as the song goes, the second gift was two turtle doves, and doves are symbolic of the Holy Spirit (Luke 3:22).  This Christmas, open your heart to Jesus and receive His gift of the Holy Spirit.  Lord, send the Holy Spirit to teach me to love as Jesus did on the cross.  Amen.

Faith Challenge:  Set aside all of the gifts that you have received this Christmas and focus on the gift from Jesus, the Holy Spirit.

Faith Quote:  “Wise leaders should have known that the human heart cannot exist in a vacuum. If Christians are forbidden to enjoy the wine of the Spirit they will turn to the wine of the flesh….Christ died for our hearts and the Holy Spirit wants to come and satisfy them.” ~ A.W. Tozer

Through Christ our Lord,
James 1:22

* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (22% pregnancies).Prov 24:11 & Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa.
* Evangelize: Make room for unbelievers & re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Matt 28:19.
