Bereavement – 15th December 2018

I pray today Lord, for those families where there will be bereavement this Christmas time. Throw your arms of compassion around them and console them. Help them to perceive the meaning of life that much more, and the significance of death in Christ. I ask it in Christ – AMEN.

Interviews for new jobs – 14th December 2018

I pray today Lord, for people going for interviews for new jobs starting in January. Help them to give a good account of themselves and to keep a clear head. Help those doing the interviewing to ask good questions and not to try trick questions. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.

NOT ALL ARE THE SAME

“Some however, did receive him and believed in him; so he gave them the right to become God’s children”.

Jn 1:12 GNB

Not all people are the same. We come with different physical features, different mental capacities, different likes and dislikes. And varying ideas, hopes and dreams. Not all of us share the same ideologies, prejudices, and fears. Nevertheless, we do have them!

And not all the people in Israel responded in the identical way to Jesus and his message. Some were hoping for God to manifest himself in some dramatic way, to send his Messiah, to intervene in the political situation, or to show his glory in a new revelation of himself. Some were ready for Jesus. Some sensed that the portrayal of God that was standard in Israel was off-key. They were waiting for God to open the window on himself and show them what he was really like – and wished he would. When he did, coming in the Christ of Bethlehem, they warmed to him, sought to hear his teaching, witness his miracles, and believe that here was the Christ, the Son of the living God and the final truth about God.

People still vary in how they respond to Jesus. Some reject him totally. Some just jeer at him. Others sneer. Some think that a scientific world has no room for anything to do with God, and that Jesus is just a fairy story. They claim that they “’can get on all right on their own and don’t need all this God stuff”. And some say “Yes, Lord God, Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, you are the light I need in my darkness, the hope in my despair, the sense in my meaninglessness”.
