“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 16:13-19
When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (https://www.bible.com/videos/266/series)

Reflections for JUNE 29, 2014 Sts. Peter & Paul:
Acts 12.1-11; 2Tim 4.6-8,17-18; MT 16.13-19
HEROD DECIDED TO ARREST PETER AS WELL.
THE ANGEL OF THE LORD
WOKE PETER. ‘GET UP’ HE SAID. & THE
CHAINS FELL FROM HIS HANDS.
‘But you, who do you say that I am?’ Peter said, You are the Christ,
Son of the Living God.’ Jesus said, ‘Blessed are you,
Simon bar Jonah, for it was not flesh & blood that
revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven.’
During the day: Get up! Imagine the ‘chains’ that trouble you falling away. Thank the Lord for making your problems his; entrusted to you, his help guaranteed. be patient. Rest in his love.
ABOUT PRAYER: Prayer is resting in Christ’s love! His plan; his power; his trust. It’s accepting the ‘chains’ of living his life, one with him, in the good & the bad, the transfiguration & the crucifixion. Prayer is faith & hope in the resurrection, lived with charity.
