Epistle Reflection

We may seem poor, but we make many rich;
we seem to have nothing,
but we possess all that there is to have.

New Testament Reading - God's age-old purpose

thumb

8 Just think! Though I did nothing to deserve it, and though I am the most useless Christian there is, yet I was the one chosen for this special joy of telling the Gentiles the Glad News of the endless treasures available to them in Christ; 9 and to explain to everyone that God is the Saviour of the Gentiles too, just as he who made all things had secretly planned from the very beginning.

10 And his reason? To show to all the rulers in heaven how perfectly wise he is when all of his family - Jews and Gentiles alike - are seen to be joined together in his church, 11 in just the way he had always planned it through Jesus Christ our Lord.

12 Now we can come fearlessly right into God's presence, assured of his glad welcome when we come with Christ and trust in him.

Remember, O Lord, your compassion and love,
for they are from everlasting.
Lord, have mercy. E te Ariki, kia aroha mai.
Let the sorrowful sighing of the prisoners come before you;
and by your great might,
spare those who are condemned to die.
Christ, have mercy. E te Karaiti, kia aroha mai.
Lord, give strength to your people,
and give us your blessing of peace.
Lord, have mercy. E te Ariki, kia aroha mai.
Amen.
