God’s Call our Response
Good morning everyone – good to see you here in church today
There is an internet Blog called Thoughts about God. Now for those who are not familiar with digital technology and terminology this is a sort of online diary where people offers reflections, on a variety of subjects and in one of the Thoughts about God reflections titled Embracing God’s Call there is a prayer I have that cribbed into this devotion.
Dear Heavenly Father, create in me a faithful heart that is sensitive to your prompting. Empower and equip me to be your hands, feet, and voice among those I encounter in my life journey. Amen.
We welcome the Rev Jim Gemmell and his wife Catherine who will and conduct worship today along with our friends from Carnwadric who join us to meet with him later. A man my wife and I met many years some years ago in Drummnadrochit when he discovered I was a parish minister told me that he felt that ministers were strange people as they only heard God’s Call once every 7 yrs usually when it was time to move. The truth of course is that God’s Call is an everyday story where He leads us and guides us always. The Psalmist said, “ Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalm 119:105 )
As Rev Gemmell Explores where God is leading him in our service this morning, the above prayer is a good place to begin in the search of God’s lead and direction and we hope that all will enjoy the challenge of God’s Word and Worship this morning – being “sensitive to God’s prompting empowering us and equipping us to be His hands, feet, and voice among those We encounter.” Do you know what? We don’t need to be a minister for that to happen to us . Have a good week and see you next Sunday
