Sit quietly and calm yourself by taking three deep breaths. Rest in the presence of God. When you are ready, begin.
Acts of the Apostles 1:8
But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Jesus tells the apostles that they are to witness everywhere, from Jerusalem "to the ends of the earth." As disciples we too are called to witness. Like a tiny pebble dropped into a pool of water, the effects of what we do ripple outward in increasingly wider circles. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the little ways that we give witness to God's love, goodness, and mercy ripple out, often farther than we can imagine.
In what ways do I see the effects of my own witness to the Lord?
How am I being invited to reach out beyond my comfort zone?
(Pray to Jesus, using these words or words of your own.)
Lord Jesus, help me to be a more faithful witness in all I say and do, no matter who is with me or where I am.
