Romans 2:10 (Reflecting God’s Goodness)

14 Oct Romans 2:10 (Reflecting God’s Goodness)

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

But there will be glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does good, Jew first and then Greek. Romans 2:10 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “WHEN I READ THESE words, I immediately thought of my parents. Because of their goodness to me, and to so many others. I have always felt a spontaneous joy in honoring them. And I hope to continue honoring them when we are reunited in heaven. That will be one of heaven’s great joys.” by Fr. Kenneth Grabner, C.S.C.

Steve’s thoughts: The family is the bedrock from which all vocations flow and the homebase of the Church militant (you and I on the front lines). I have been blessed to have a loving and supporting family thoughout my life. I give thanks for the support my parents gave me in my vocational journey from discernment in the seminary to married life and the blossoming of my own “youth ministry”. Dear Jesus, thank you for the gift of my parents and famiy both present and those who have gone before me in faith.
Faith Challenges: Let’s all invite one person each week (John 14:6) to join our LIFE Group (>240 of God’s children).
* NEW: Take a moment to honor your parents in word and prayer today.

Counter-Culture News: LifeSiteNews, 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), Stephanie Spader (for pregnancy), Joyce Trunk (friend w/brain cancer), Kathy Castle (Vicki Miller in hospice).

Faith Quotes: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction. Hear, my son, your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching; Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head and ornaments about your neck.” – Proverbs 1: 7-9

Through Christ our Lord,
Romans 12:2

* 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).
