Seventh Sunday of Easter (2013)

Romans 8:1-2: There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life in Christ has set me free from the law of sin and death.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, thank you for all of your gifts to us. Today, we want to especially thank you for liberating us from law and empowering us with your Spirit. Fill us and empower us today with your Spirit as we commit to live our life for you. In the name of Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
God's love and gift of salvation is not kept for a few or for one nation alone, but it is for the whole world - for all who will accept it. The gospel is the power of God, the power to let go people from their burden of guilt, sin, and oppression, and the power to heal, restore, and make us entire. This is the great commission which the risen Jesus gives to the whole church. All believers have been given a share in this task - to be messengers of the good news and ambassadors for Jesus, the only savior of the world. We have not been left alone in this task, for the risen Lord works in and through us by the authority of his Holy Spirit. Today we witness a new Pentecost as the Lord pours out his Holy Spirit upon his people to renovate and strengthen the body of Jesus and to provide it for effective ministry and mission world-wide. Do we witness to others the joy of the gospel and the hope of the resurrection? Loving Infant Jesus, through the gift of your Holy Spirit, you fill us with a strong spirit of praise and joy which no earthly trial can subdue. Fill us with your resurrection joy and help us to live a life of admire and thanksgiving for your glory. May we witness to those around me the joy of the gospel and the actuality of your resurrection.
