True meaning of life – 11th August 2018

Lord, let me not live to become enclosed in my own interests and concerns alone. Remind me that the fullness of life that the Holy Spirit desires for me comes from opening myself up to others, investing myself in them and seeking to promote their interests. Let me find the true meaning of life in other people. I ask it in Christ – AMEN.

Problems – 10th August 2018

Lord, I pray today for those people who are prisoners of their own problems, who allow small and trivial difficulties to overwhelm and frustrate them. Help them to look beyond themselves and see how other people need their help. Enable them to find love by extending love to other people and hope by offering it. Through Christ – AMEN.

Shocking news – 9th August 2018

Lord God, bless today those people who will receive the shock news that a loved one has been killed or has died. Put your arms of mercy around them and comfort them with love. Hold them in their times of despair and disbelief. Help the occasion to bring families together in solidarity and support. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.

GETTING TO KNOW GOD

“My righteousness will soon be revealed”.

Isa 56: 1 NIV

We all want to know God. Who is he? How does he work? What does he do? What does he want of us? What does he do for us? What is he like? Answers to these questions appear from time to time in the Bible and in the teaching of the Christian community. The ancient Israelites wrestled with the same questions. They had the additional slant on it all because believing in him was the faith of the nation as a community and so whoever he was and what he did was tied up with their fortunes or misfortunes as a nation.

One thing that becomes clear in the Old testament is that he himself was righteous and he demanded righteousness of his people. That is to say some behaviour was good, as God was good. Other conduct was unrighteous or unacceptable to God. And in the reinstatement of the Israelite people in Jerusalem and the surrounding areas after their Babylonian captivity God was revealing his nature. What he did in restoring his people was righteous – loving, healing, renewing, and making them good.

Christian believers find what God is like by looking at Jesus, seeing his nature, hearing his words of truth, observing his deeds of goodness, healing and befriending the outcasts. And in forgiving people for their sins and making them acceptable to God the Father. Jesus enables us to stand before God the righteous Father completely cleansed, restored and free from sin. That is the righteousness of the Father and the Son. Stand in that righteousness, renewed and empowered by his Holy Spirit.

PRAYER THOUGHT

Lord, reveal yourself to me more and more.
