Fifth Sunday of Easter
Watchword for the Week — Jesus says, “Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.” John 15:4
Sunday, May 3 — Acts 8:26–40; Psalm 22:25–31
1 John 4:7–21; John 15:1–8
Whoever is kind to the needy honors God. Proverbs 14:31 (NIV)
If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. James 2:15–17
O loving Creator, we recognize that you are our Provider. We give thanks to you every day. Let us share your blessings with others in need, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
