Matthew 8:25-26 (The Marathon of Faith)

28 Jun Matthew 8:25-26 (The Marathon of Faith)

Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB).

“They came and woke him up, saying, ‘Lord, save us! We are perishing!’ He said to them, ‘Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?’ Then he got up, rebuked the winds and sea, and there was great calm.” Matthew 8:25-26 (full readings)

Rob Reflections: The Pro-Life movement has endured many setbacks in the decades-long struggle to secure for the unborn their fundamental Right to Life. For those with a sprinter’s approach, setbacks are devastating. The long-term Pro-Lifers and all our LIFE Runners know this battle is not a sprint…it is a marathon. There are certainly times in a marathon or any long race when the athlete thinks “I am perishing.” At those times the athlete offers a self-rebuke, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Then the athlete calls on their faith and training, calming the winds and seas of doubt…and continues forward. So too in our long struggle for the cause for Life. We are NOT perishing. Keep the faith and call on the Lord…the ending of the Book is written. 
Faith Challenge: In what way are you perishing in the cause for Life? Can you you endure a gentle rebuke and allow God to calm any storms of doubt you might be experiencing? Call on the Lord today to increase your faith and give you the stamina to continue this marathon for Life.

* 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.
