This week’s Old Testament reading tells the story of the first Passover. The people were told to be ready, to cook and eat quickly, and keep no leftovers. They were to be ready to move. Likewise, in our New Testament reading, Paul reminds his readers that “the night is far gone, the day is near.” They are to be ready!
What about us? Are we travelling light? Are we ready to answer God’s call whenever it comes? Jesus gives us great authority, not to order hurricanes to change their path, but to share God’s love with the world. We are literally commanded to “rewrite the rule-book”!
What exciting future does the Lord have in store for you? Find out at All Saints this Sunday.
I hope we can joyfully worship God together as we repeat the words of God’s people to this get music of the faith. Please give me your feedback!
Our bible readings for this Sunday are Exodus 12:1-14, Romans 13:8-14, and Matthew 18:15-20, and we will be singing the hymns Let All the World in Every Corner Sing, One Bread One Body, and Go forth and tell.
