10 Sep Luke 6:21 (Resurrection)

* Welcome God every morning before work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which has snippets from Living Faith ( All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Luke 6:21

Living Faith snippets: “When you forgive your enemy, when you feed the hungry, when you defend the weak [the unborn], you believe in the resurrection. When you wake at peace in the morning, when you sing to the rising sun, when you go to work with joy, you believe in the resurrection.” by Carlo Carretto (“Essential Writings”)

Pat nuggets:
* While searching for info on marriage as a holy institution from God, I found a thorough and surprisingly concise article from the Vatican titled, “Considerations regarding proposals to give legal recognition to unions between homosexual persons.” The intro defends the sanctity of marriage with scripture. Here are a few snippets on our call to live the virtue of chastity, love homosexuals to the truth, and to protect the sanctity of marriage: “…men and women with homosexual tendencies “must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided”.(7) They are called, like other Christians, to live the virtue of chastity.(8) The homosexual inclination is however “objectively disordered”(9) and homosexual practices are “sins gravely contrary to chastity”.(10) …respect for homosexual persons cannot lead in any way to approval of homosexual behaviour or to legal recognition of homosexual unions. The common good requires that laws recognize, promote and protect marriage as the basis of the family, the primary unit of society.”

* Cleta Jasper shared: “Colorado will have Amendment 48 on the ballot this November…called the “Personhood Amendment.” [If passed]…in the state constitution, “the terms ‘person’ or ‘persons’ shall include any human being from the moment of fertilization.” Passage of this amendment will be fought tooth-and-nail by the anti-life forces – predominately Planned Parenthood. (They spent – as I understand it – approximately $10 million in opposition to the Marriage Amendment two years ago.) We are anticipating that they will spend at least that much money this next month or so. Colorado for Equal Rights does NOT have that kind of money to counter such television ads. What I’m asking of you is this! Prayer, prayer & more prayer – along with fasting as you are able…for a miracle! Thank you so much & may God bless you abundantly! Please check out”

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, thereby changing us & helping others. Wayne Watson lyrics, “When God’s people pray, there is hope reborn, there is sin forgiven, and miracles you can’t explain await!” “If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead & see Him.”
* 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. Prayer to End Abortion. Ask Blessed Margaret of Castello for her prayers to end abortion.
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for non-believers (be a friend, make a friend, lead 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.
Let’s joyfully live out the Good News and gladly tell others about it (Mark 16:15)!
