January 5th: Sent to do good

Friday 5th January: We continue to celebrate Christ’s birth – the miracle of God coming to live with us.

 Some words of Scripture to think about

The spirit of the Lord God is upon me,

because the Lord has anointed me;

He has sent me to bring glad tidings to the lowly,

to heal the broken-hearted,

To proclaim liberty to the captives

and release to the prisoners,

To announce a year of favour from the Lord.

Isaiah 61:1-2a

I take it you know what has happened all over Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached, how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the holy Spirit and power. He went about doing good and healing all those oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. We are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem.

Acts 10.37-38

How do you, by actions and words, share in the Lord’s work of doing good?

For your prayers

  • For one another and all Christians to proclaim Christ’s Love
  • Those in prison
  • Those ill at home and in hospital
  • the lonely and confused

Our Father…

Lord, fill our hearts with your light. May we always acknowledge Christ as our Saviour and be more faithful to his gospel, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. – Amen.
