2021 Easter

Fourth Sunday of Easter
 
"Resurrection Love...Love in Truth and Action"
 
Scriptures: 
Acts 4:5-12     Psalm 23
1 John 3:16-24     John 10:11-18
 

First John reminds us that we are to love one another because God's love abides in us. We know love because we have knowledge of Jesus who loved us and laid down his life for us. We believe in the name of God's Son Jesus Christ and the power of love that his name carries. The way we live our faith is through truth and action. The Scripture tells us "let us love not in word or speech, but in truth and action." We are to put our words into action and exercise our faith in the world. In Acts we have an example of Peter and John doing just that. They are questioned by the council on whose authority they are healing people. Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, replies that they are healing in the name of Jesus Christ and by his authority. The resurrection love of Christ heals when we speak truth into action and love one another.

Daily Devotion
Thursday, April 22, 2021
 

John 10:14-16: “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own knows me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.” For He is the good shepherd. He claims the sheep (his people) as his own flock bringing all into his fold. This is what I like most from this scripture. Bringing all into his fold, listening and learning from his teachings. His love is for all, who except his words for truth and redemption. With the mentioning of his Father, I am reminded of my own father- how well he knew me. He would call just at the right time for comfort and concern. This connection of love and support is always available, through our Father above. Through faith in an everlasting life, I still feel my own father’s continued support from heaven, comforting me within my heart and soul. Prayer: Christ the good Shepherd, through faith you will lead your flock through truth and understanding of his words. We worship all you stand for and will keep your sacred sacrifice as an example of the greatest love offered. Amen
