“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
As 7 UPpers we meet weekly in small groups and/or as individuals on the internet, we choose to Praise Him and Worship Him in Spirit and Truth.
Jesus came and told his disciples, I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:18-20)

Gospel: Matthew 22:15-21
The Pharisees went off and plotted how they might entrap Jesus in speech. They sent their disciples to him, with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. And you are not concerned with anyone’s opinion, for you do not regard a person’s status. Tell us, then, what is your opinion: Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?” Knowing their malice, Jesus said, “Why are you testing me, you hypocrites? Show me the coin that pays the census tax.” Then they handed him the Roman coin. He said to them, “Whose image is this and whose inscription?” They replied, “Caesar’s.” At that he said to them, “Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”

‘Is it lawful to pay tax to the emperor or not?’ ‘Hypocrites! Show me the coin
used for the tax. Whose head is this?’ ‘Caesar’s.’ ‘Give to Caesar what is
Caesar’s, & to God what is God’s!
During the day: Treasure the gifts God has given you, especially the freedom to use them as you like. Expressions of his love, he would have them used as such: for the good of others, rather than your own.
ABOUT PRAYER: If the true value of God’s gifts is their ability to communicate his love, the basic attitude of prayer must be gratitude, its authenticity evident in their use in the service of others.
