14 Mar Leviticus 19:16 (Holiness)
“Nor shall you stand by idly when your neighbor’s life is at stake. I am the Lord.” Leviticus 19:16 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: In today’s Scripture from Leviticus, the Lord gives Moses a series of instructions for how the Israelite people are to treat each other. If you notice after each command, He proclaims yet again, “I am the Lord” (Leviticus 19:12, 14, 16, 18). He is telling us that each command He gives us is a reflection of His holiness, and the Lord is inviting us to experience this holiness for our own by obeying His commandments. In obeying the Lord’s commandments, we will know and understand the holiness of God. Lord, I surrender to Your truth and love. Pour Your Spirit into me so that I may have the power to see the things I need to change. Make me holy, as You are holy, and help me to live always in Your light. Amen.
Faith Challenge: Reflect on how Leviticus chapter 19 can be applied to your life and strive for holiness.

* 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.
