Sunday – 2nd October2016

Lord, it’s Sunday and time to worship you with the Christian community. Open my mind to receive and hear your word. Let your Holy Spirit so pervade the worship I shall share in that at the end I will know that I have met with you, and that you have renewed me at depth. In Christ’s name. AMEN

Recreation and renewal – 1st October 2016

Lord God, another Saturday is here, the end of another week. Thank you for what I have been able to get done since last weekend. Help me to use this weekend creatively and to carve out time for my own recreation and renewal. Help me to spend time with other people. In Christ’s name. AMEN

Light of the world – 30th September 2016

Jesus Christ, light of the world, shine into my world when I cannot see the way, or understand the confusion around me, or find my bearings. Help me to spread light, hope, joy and love to all with whom I have to deal. When all is dark around me, help me to grope forward. In Christ’s name. AMEN

TELL THE MESSAGE

“So Moses went back and summoned the elders of the people and set before them all the words the Lord had commanded him to speak”.

Ex 19:7 NIV

It is a solemn and awesome responsibility to convey a message from God to his people. They need the word from God more than anything else. They wander, struggling and confused, through the world trying to get it right. They have their own human wisdom and experience to guide them and the examples of others. But from Adam on people have asked “Is there any word from the Lord?” They still ask it today – in fact every Sunday as Christian disciples worship, they are asking that very question. And they do not want to know the message of the messenger. They want to hear from God.

The words Moses took with him from the mountain top of Sinai were a special message. They were the commandments for all time. And they formed the distilled wisdom the Jewish people shared with all the world – this was their responsibility and their destiny. And this message was the kernel of their faith and the way of life God had prescribed for them. They were the words of life – sensible words, strong words, wholesome words. “This”, God said “was the best and noble and creative way to live. These words meant peace. These words meant respect. They were law, life and liberty”.

In a world which normally spurns God, defies him, and goes its own unruly way, they are still needed today. And the Christian community has the ongoing calling to tell the message to the people and the world – as Moses did at Sinai. They are the gift of God in his grace. May we never fail the present age.

PRAYER THOUGHT

Lord, challenge us again to tell your message.
