Rev John Mitchell has posted this reflection:
"Whatever you do whether in word or deed, do it always in the name of the Lord Jesus."
It's been a tough old life these past number of months and yet it has been, on reflection, a time in the life of many I know where faith has deepened.
Paul was strong in his presentation of the gospel, of what it can do to help you through life with all its ups and downs. Our vacancy is almost at an end when your new minister will seek to build upon the faith of the congregation, leading you forward with the name of Jesus Christ always before you ...... Paul writes whatever you do in word or deed do it all in the name of Jesus. With him all things are achievable, and many blessings will come to those who trust His word.
It has been tough for the church as well. But keep this in mind .... when the going gets tough give thanks to God and an outpouring of his Spirit will lead to hope and strength. So, whether in word or deed do it all in his name.
Heavenly Father, thank you for this day in my life, for your presence as I pray, for the comfort you bring, for the sense of joy welling up within me and pray for the way you have assured me once more in Jesus' name ... Amen.
