Prayer: O God, Your wondrous plan of salvation has been revealed in many ways, shapes and forms. Help us to grasp that wonder, to see possibilities of grand moments, and to not be overwhelmed when heartbreak comes our way. Amaze us with new possibilities this day O Lord. Amen.
Read St Luke 2: 33-35
God is constantly seeking to amaze us. While we all know our children are amazing, the words that Simeon uses to describe the child Jesus show us one who is beyond anything we would hope or imagine for our own children. There is great joy in the coming of Jesus among those who waited for the saviour of
such as Simeon. This child has come to confront sin, not just as a formal concept but to deal with it in a practical way. There is great joy in the coming of Jesus among those who waited for the saviour of Israel such as Simeon. Jesus came not to pass comment on the fallen nature of humanity, or worse to pass judgement upon it but to create a new redemptive order in the world. Redemption was not going to be without heart breaking cost but it will going to transform the world. Israel
Prayer: Thank you Lord for Jesus and His ability to transform the world. May we find the ability to be such a radical force for transformation in our world. Help us to start the changes in our own lives and among those who are closest to us. Amen
