21 Mar Jn 5:21 (I come to do your will) by Ron Meyer
Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB). Leaders. Guest Authors.
“For just as the Father raises the dead and gives life so also does the Son give life to whomever he wishes.” ~ Jn 5:21 (full readings)
Ron’s Reflections: We hear in today’s Gospel Jesus’ words “For just as the Father raises the dead and gives life so also does the Son give life to whomever he wishes.” Jesus came precisely to give life to a dying world stained by sin. His sacrifice on that Good Friday gave us the opportunity to have life abundantly, that which is eternal. Are we making the most out of our life? God asks us to give ourselves for the sole purpose to do his will. He is a jealous God who wants us united to him. Don’t miss the opportunity each day to echo these words, “I come to do your will.” It beats the alternative.

Faith Challenge: This the fourth week of Lent. Seek to restrain from selfish tendencies. Instead of asking what can I get out of something ask what can I give to make something better for another. If you fail, keep trying; if you fail again, try again; if you succeed, don’t fail again; you now have attained virtue.

Through Christ our Lord,
* 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 (images) is #1 death cause (23% 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.
