For Sunday 23 September 2018


As we gather for worship this Sunday the readings from God’s Word again call us to a life of humble service. That’s how Christ lived—we hear Him this morning explaining to His disciples a second time that He will be put to death. That’s how Jeremiah lived—abused by the people and the target of murderous plots. That’s also how we are called to live—humble, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, and full of mercy, not fighting and quarreling, not in love with the world, not always envying and wanting more. Jesus tried to teach the disciples this in the paradox, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all” (Mark 9:35). That’s what Jesus tries to teach us as well. May we, by the power of the Spirit, put this lesson into practice in how we live
