For Sunday 23 June 2019

 

As we gather for worship this Sunday each of the readings from God's word vividly portrays the problem of sin. Through Isaiah the Lord makes it very clear that we are by nature children of wrath and deserving of punishment. Paul speaks of people before Christ enters their lives as being under a guardian or as captives and prisoners of the law. The Gerasene demoniac was under the control of evil spirits who made his life one of total misery. Yet each of the readings also shows that God provides a way out. It's not that the person can free himself. In no instance is that possible. Instead, in his mercy and grace God preserves a remnant, God expels the demonic powers, God gives freedom by sending his Son to bear the curse. In Christ we sinners are adopted as sons of God and made heirs of heaven. Thank God for his mercy and grace!
