Mark 12:38 – 13:13.
Good Morning to all. Trust you are doing well and looking forward to services this week. Due to the timing, duration, and reaction to these new radiation protocols there have been gaps in the daily message this week. We think these issues are all solved and hope there will be no more of them for the duration of the treatment.
As we look to God’s word today and think of our upcoming meeting tomorrow; how thankful we are to be able to meet in person and gather to praise His name and rejoice and focus our collective voices to praise Him and bow in humble submission to petition at the throne of all grace and mercies once again.
The psalmist makes us think. There are so many at this time to pray for and petition on their behalf. Many in grief and heavy laden with the burden of this life and its existence. These bodies are succumbing and deteriorating daily as Paul states, yet there is a Great Hope we see and look forward to on the horizon. We are called upon to suffer pain of this weak flesh and at times to give up those we love in this life and though this comes to all: we see a brighter day that brings the Great Hope of the Lord and His power, His glory and His sustaining and almighty grace poured out upon us. And we rejoice to see the power of God; His love; His mercy abound to His children in this time.
And we can rejoice in the truth that He is risen, and sits on the right hand of the Father today and hears our prayers and requests and grants them. For ours is The Great God of Heaven and Earth; Creator of all there is and establisher of the truth we live by. By His Grace we have our being, and can see the beauty of His Saving Grace and Eternal Hope. And He lifts the heart and calms the troubled breast and heart and sends peace that passes understanding.
It is a mystery of such a great work He has done and ia still doing each day in the lives of His own. May our desire be to draw closer to Him and learn more of Him that we may serve Him here each day to the glory of His Great and Precious Name.
May God richly bless each of you this day with His eternal Grace and your heart be lifted from this old world of sin and sorrow for a season to rejoice in His finished work and glorify Him in our lives.
God bless and keep you in His Grace,
