For Sunday 5 July 2020

 

As we gather for worship Sunday the readings again remind us of the struggle and conflict Christians face in this world. St. Paul describes his personal experience, " . . . I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. . . . For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing" (Romans 7:15, 19). Yet wretched as we are in our sin, we can nonetheless conclude with Paul, "Thanks be to God," for our gentle and humble Savior brings rest for those who are weary and burdened by sin. Indeed, Zechariah writes, by the blood of His covenant He secures our freedom from slavery to sin and promises that He will finally strip our enemies of every power to hurt us. We rejoice, then, to take His burden as we wait in hope for our final deliverance.
