May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this 2nd Last Sunday in the Church Year: For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ. (2.Cor.5:10)
O Lord, so rule and govern our hearts and minds by Your Holy Spirt that, ever mindful of the end of all things and the day of Your just judgment, we may be stirred up to holiness of living here and dwell with You forever hereafter; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
If you are called to preach this weekend, may the triune God give you joy and strength, passion and wisdom, knowledge and insight – and the true words and pictures to preach his holy will faithfully according to his most precious revelation of his will and promises in both the Old and New Testament! However if you are not preaching, but listening – then listen as if God is talking to you + His precious gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” (Rom 1:16 NIV)
