Verse for March 25th

Jeremiah 31.34

No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, ‘Know the Lord’, for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.

6: Transforming Hope

Knowledge

A verse from today’s Old Testament reading which sets the theme for the week—Transforming Hope

Forgiveness makes relationship. God’s forgiveness brings us into relationship with him—so we can know him.  What an amazing gift.

Pause

  • Take time today ... to reflect on what it means for you to ‘know God’. (Not simply to know about God.)
  • Transforming Life … ‘be still and know’ ; let the knowledge of God bring transformation to your life today.

Act

  • Make time today … ‘they shall all know me’ … celebrate and share the knowledge of God that is in other people.

Pastor from Malawi.

He went to Livingstone’s church in Blantyre, Scotland. God used Him to bring folk into the church. They were previously alienated, as the church had not really done anything effective about taking God’s love to them.
There are a couple of other programmes on BBC tv on the same theme; a reverse missionary process as it were.
The African exhuberance was a marked contrast to western behaviour.

The cloud of unknowing

Who is like the Lord? Julian of Norwich in her little cell knew that the Almighty is like a parent and we are made in the image of God, each one of us. Wow. Tht takes some knoweing but we need to try. We are going to fall back into the everlasting arms underneath soon enough and need to trust when we do.

Pastor from Malawi

I served in Malawi for a year with VSO.  IF you have time, Keith, would you say how God used the Pastor?

Today.

As we share in Communion, may we share our love for God with others in His world.
I was struck by the pastor from Malawi on the television, who was in Scotland, and how he was used by God in the local community.
