Over Us All,
And All Our Endeavours,
and God’s Life Affirming Word
Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you may live. I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.
2 Corinthians 1:20
For in him every one of God’s promises is a ‘Yes. ’ For this reason it is through him that we say the ‘Amen’, to the glory of God.
Words of Grace For Today
We all know too well the ‘no’s that the world throws at us and so many others. We are well practised at tossing our ‘no’s into the mix … where they do not belong (for they rebound back on us more than they impact others).
God has always had a contrary way (contrary not to the universe, but to our perverted way of being in it) of working with creation and us creatures.
God says Yes! Yes! YES! And forever YES!!
To all of life’s goodness and to us in it (though we are full of so much that is not good) God says YES! And forever God says YES!
While we waste away life filling it with ‘no’s, God calls us to be those who also proclaim God’s YES! to all people.
And that starts by confessing our sins, accepting forgiveness and renewed life, and accepting that we are God-sent to say AMEN! to all God’s YES!’s.
Just another little challenge for this day, too, again, and again, …. forever.
Amen. (may it be so.)
