Luke 9:49 (those not in our own club)

28 Sep Luke 9:49 (those not in our own club)

Let’s welcome God this morning by reflecting on this short Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which is based on Living Faith. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow in our company. Luke 9:49 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “I need to hear Jesus say, “whoever is not against you is for you,” and to recognize that good can come from everyone, even those not in my own club.” by Aileen O’Donoghue

Pastor Don devotion: the light is always green‏

Faith Challenges:
* NEW members include Pat/Laurie Moran and Charles Stewart…welcome! Let’s all invite one person each week (John 14:6) to join our LIFE Group (>235 ProLife Christians).
* NEW: Let’s welcome someone today who is not in our own club.

Counter-Culture News: LifeSiteNews, 40 Days for Life (began 23 Sep), American Family Association, Priests for Life
* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images)…#1 cause of death in America. Let’s courageously share ProLife Truth to create social tension for exposing abortion’s unjust peace…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16) and setting the unborn free!

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas in footnote below.
* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, illnesses/injuries, jobs, natural disasters, refugees, addictions, persecuted believers, Peters family (JP in hospital), Lynn Bishara (for son Alex), Pat Castle (for cousin Michael), Stephanie Spader (for peace/healthy pregnancy), Kay Castle (Nancy Wheeler, Sheri Daniels, Sr. Joan Luke), Maureen Rogers (her pain)

Feast Day: St. Wenceslaus

Faith Quote: “No Jesus, No Peace. Know Jesus, Know Peace.”

Through Christ our Lord,
Phil 4:13

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead.’
* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that take our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, bitterness, being so critical, impatience, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).
* 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).
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (be a friend, make a friend, lead a 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 (Matt 28:19).
