Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB). Leaders. Guest Authors.
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.” ~ Lk 1:35 (full readings)

Shane’s Reflections: Every Christian has a participation in Mary’s experience at the Annunciation.  When we recognize the immensity of the vocation to which we have been called – birthing Christ in our lives and world – we respond exactly as she did, “How can this be?”  And we are given the same answer, “Through the Holy Spirit, the power of the Most High.”

Faith Challenge: At this moment there is a mother asking, “How, with the circumstances in my life, can I carry this child to term?”  Pray for the Holy Spirit to speak directly to her soul and assure her that, though there will be struggles, He will pour out the grace and helps so that she can give birth to the child.  Then ask yourself if you can be of some service, perhaps monetarily, to a crisis pregnancy center.
