John 15:26 (Know Spirit, No Fear!)

30 May John 15:26 (Know Spirit, No Fear!)

Welcome God today with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB).
“When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, He will testify to me, and you will testify also.” John 15:26-27 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: The Holy Spirit witnesses for Jesus Christ, and we are called to be witnesses as well. This is a challenging task, because we are called to do something beyond our human nature; beyond what the world expects from us. This is why Jesus’ witnesses need to receive the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8), because we are called to do something beyond our own power. It is exhilarating to be a part of something that you know deep inside was beyond your own ability, and that God through the Holy Spirit obviously had an influence to make happen. By opening our hearts to the truth of the Spirit, He gives us the faith to overcome our fears to testify for the Lord. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may have the courage to defend all that is holy and be a witness to our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Faith Challenge: Is fear keeping you from testifying for our Lord? Pray for the Holy Spirit to give you the courage to do God’s will.

Feast Day: St. Philip Neri often spoke to people on street corners in Rome about Jesus. One time, thirty young men came to ridicule him. Jesus touched their hearts through Philip, and they were all converted to faith.
Faith Quote: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” ~ 2 Timothy 1:7
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 (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.
