To remain connected to who I come from
  • Acts 4:32-37
  • Psalm 93:1-2,5
  • John 3:7-15

I listened to my prayer partner who testified to the tangible miracles she had witnessed. Her life’s work is reaching out to strangers and bringing them healing and life in the name of God. She is generous with her time, energy, and the love and knowledge she has of God, so that she reaches many in need. The Spirit prompts and she runs. The first reading talks of the generosity of the first community of believers. With great power the apostles were bearing witness to the resurrection. We see God’s grace at work in all those who have heard. In the Gospel proclamation, Jesus invites us to be born again, where the Spirit gives birth: the Spirit that comes down from heaven, keeping us connected to our heavenly Father. In seeking to be open to the leading of the Spirit, we can testify to the heavenly things on earth. Just as we do not see the wind but the effects of it, we can live as witnesses to the effects of the Spirit in our life. We do not need to be materially rich to help further the kingdom of God.

Prayer: Abba Father, open my ears so that I may hear your prompts and follow your leading. Amen.
