GPW Minute for 4/18: Easter Makes Families New!

An Easter Week Word from Jesus “A New Life” Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of The JOY of New Home Relationships A WORD FROM THE LORD Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised form the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:3-4 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT We’re starting to get on each other’s nerves! This new lifestyle has impacted family life. When we can’t avoid each other, we face the reality of our sinful, selfishness. Easter grace makes forgiveness and patience very real in our homes! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Lord Jesus, teach us to forgive as we have been forgiven and to enjoy the new life of life together in new ways. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for The Joy of Renewed Family Life. MARKER OF WELLBEING: Relational As I grow in God’s grace of Relational PATIENCE, I am finding joy in my UNITY in Christ with spouse, family and church.
