Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 5:17- 21
The blood of Jesus makes it possible for us to leave our old, sinful ways behind and to receive eternal life through a restored relationship with God.
As we follow Jesus, we must also carry his message of mercy inside our hearts and share it with other people in need.
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!
“The Hunt for Water”
Many poor families, like Agnes’, spend hours hunting for faraway water sources. This week, hunt through the Scriptures to find any verse that mentions the words “water” or “thirst.” Place a coin in the collection cup for every water-related Scripture you find.
More than half of the people in rural areas of Ghana do not have a sanitary toilet.

Dear Jesus, you make all things new! Thank you for washing us clean from sin and for trusting us to carry your message of salvation to the world around us. Help us to engage in meaningful works of mercy that will share your love with those in deepest need. Please end the pain of the poor and refresh them with new joy! Amen.
