Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us
(cf. 2 Corinthians 5:14-20)


Day 2
Live no longer for themselves
(2 Corinthians 5:15)

    • God has told you what is good (Micah 6:6-8)
    • God of my salvation, show me your ways (Psalm 25:1-5)
    • We love because God first loved us (1 John 4:19-21)
    • Those who lose their life for my sake will find it (Matthew 16:24-26)

Prayer

God our Father,
in Jesus Christ you have freed us
for a life that goes beyond ourselves.
Guide us with your Spirit
and help us to orient our lives
as sisters and brothers in Christ,
who lived, suffered, died and rose again for us,
and who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
Amen.
