Inspire- The Becket!

The word inspire means ‘filled with the spirit’ and there are times when all of us take inspiration from the events and people around us. St Paul was inspired by a vision of Christ to change his ways and be a better person on the road to Damascus – we too can be inspired by Christ to change for the better. This week, think about how you can be inspirational. How can you give others a great example or show others how to live their lives in a better way?

God is speaking…Are you listening? Take some time in your form to watch this video and reflect on what you think God is calling you to do.

“A person’s words can be a source of wisdom, deep as the ocean, fresh as a flowing stream.”

Proverbs 18:4

Lord Jesus, inspire in us the words to say and use. Words that will build up others. Words that inspire the people we meet. Words that spread your good news.

We invite you to listen to this song by Matt Maher called ‘Awake my soul’. Get comfortable where you are sat, relax, put away anything that will distract you from this encounter with Christ and close your eyes or focus on the screen. Let your mind be open to a new awakening with a personal encounter with Jesus. Ask for the inspiration to live out your life as a Christian.

When you are ready, ask God for his help and guidance today, let his words and comfort inspire you to be kind, work hard and do the right thing.
