Just a quick post to fill yesterday’s empty spot, since we read something neat. (We sometimes build up too many neat things to "report".) This is Jesus talking, from Luke 12:
"What I’m trying to do here is get you to relax, not be so preoccupied with getting so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Don’t be afraid of missing out. You’re my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself."
And a Hudson Taylor quote: "God’s work done in God’s way will never lack of God’s supply."
Speaking of kingdoms (and our sermon-scripture is about one kingdom becoming two), this chorus mentions kingdoms:
"Jesus, Jesus, Jesus..
There’s just something about that name.
Master, Saviour, Jesus–
Like the fragrance after the rain!
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus;
Let all Heaven and Earth proclaim:
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away–
But there’s something about that name!"
Walk to Rivendell: We’re thankful for the variety of life that God has made.
