Lovefast 13: Cycle
By Chas from Mahabba Croydon

Thought for the day
Muhammed (not his real name) is nearing retirement age.
He is deeply concerned for his children that they correctly follow Islam and so he makes sure they complete their daily Namaz (prayers) and live the Islamic way.
He has been storing up money in his bank account for years, but he’s even more concerned about storing up credit for the afterlife.
So he makes large donations to the mosque and is planning to go on Hajj to Mecca.
He can go to the sites at any time, but to go during the Hajj itself gives maximum credit.
However, he is afraid of the huge crowds and the stampedes.
So he’s afraid that he might die there and will put it off for another year.
Do you think he will hear the gospel and believe during this year?
Or do you think the cycle of religious works continue?

Prayer for the day
Pray for Muslims you know who are bound by religious works to gain credit with God. Pray that they would see and understand the provision of Jesus’ death in their place.
Consider ways you could share your faith with Muslims. What could you give them? A gospel, a DVD? Get a stock and prayerfully give them away this year one by one.
