Intentional Faith Development – Day 20

intentional-faith-developmentReading:
‘When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been there a long time, He said to him, ‘Do you want to be made well?”
(John 5 v. 6)

Reflection:
‘Christian practices are patterns of communal action that create openings in our lives where the grace, mercy and presence of God may be made known to us…where the power of God is experienced.’
How can your church congregation change the ‘values’ of hospitality and faith development into the ‘practices’ of Radical Hospitality and Intentional Faith Development?
How will you help?

Prayer:
When my life is crowded with daily cares and fears, Lord,
help me make time to focus on Your words
so that by the power of Your Spirit
I may walk forth in Your light with confidence.
AMEN.

Challenge:
Adopt a personal practice of Christian discipleship that creates an opening for God’s mercy, grace and presence to enter in, such as a weekly study with others or a daily time of prayer or reading.
