"So now we must choose a replacement for Judas..."
God forgive us. Forgive me. We have failed you and each other. At times we have failed as leaders. At times we have failed our leaders and our fallen leaders by our vindictiveness or denial. Thank you for giving us a real story of saving grace and not a neat and tidy one. It gives us hope to know that even some of the best leaders, from the start, were flawed like we are as leaders and followers today. Give us the courage to speak the truth in the face of evil actions, and give us graciousness when leaders are weak or stumble. Holy Spirit, help us know the difference. Most of all, dear Father, stir us to dress the wounds of our past so we can move on to your new future for us. In Jesus' precious name, we pray. Amen.
Unstoppable! is a one-year devotional guide through the book of Acts. Each devotional consists of a scripture passage, a reflection and a prayer. The reflection opens up the day's scripture and shows how it challenges one to live for Jesus.
Unstoppable! is written by Phil Ware.
