19 Jul Power in the Blood (Ex 12:11,13) by Shane Kapler
Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB). Leaders. Guest Authors.
“It is the Passover of the LORD … Seeing the blood, I will pass over you” ~ Ex 12:11,13 (full readings)
Shane’s Reflections: This was how the Lord saved His People from the judgment He loosed upon Egypt. It was the historical prefigurement of the universal salvation achieved by Jesus, when He shed His Blood. Today, like Egypt’s Pharoah, many of our nation’s lawmakers repeatedly harden their hearts to God’s will to protect the unborn. The only thing that can redeem us, as a people, from divine judgment is the Blood of Christ.

Use the beads of the Rosary to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the salvation of our nation: On the large beads pray, “Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.” On the small beads (in groups of 10) pray, “For the sake of his sorrowful Passion have mercy on us and on the whole world.”
