Your Plus 1 assignment: This is the week: Invite your friends to Easter Worship (Saturday, March 31: Worship@3. Free BBQ/Easter Egg Hunt@4. Worship@5. Sunday, April 1: Worship@8:45 and 10:15)
FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… One high and one low from your day.|
|Read… As high as the sky is above the earth,
so great is his love for those who respect him.
He has taken our sins away from us
as far as the east is from west.
The Lord has mercy on those who fear him,
as a father has mercy on his children. (Psalm 103:11-13)
|Talk… What does it mean to respect God in light of how much he loves you? Why did the Bible writer use the metaphor of taking sins away as far as the east is from the west instead of as far as the north is from the south? What does it mean that God removes your sins so that he no longer remembers them? What does God’s mercy look like to you?|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
