Message for this week.

 

As we gather for worship this morning, through the prophet Jeremiah we hear a merciful promise from the Lord. He speaks of restoring his people, being their father, gently helping those who are in any difficulty, inviting them to praise him saying, "O Lord, save your people" (Jer. 31:7). We see a fulfillment of this promise in the Gospel, as Jesus invites the prayer of Bartimaeus–a blind beggar–and then graciously answers, restoring his sight. In the reading from Hebrews we find out more about our Lord, this Jesus. He is unique, an eternal priest of God, "able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them" (v. 25). Rejoice in the Lord, your holy, innocent, unstained, exalted, forever perfect Savior.
