“And he [Jesus] was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he opened the book, He found the place where it was written…”
Expectations. What are yours this year? Do you have any? Are you ready to face the new term?
It was lovely to start the new year as staff with a Eucharist service at St Luke’s with Rev Cath Brooks. Her message was both inspiring and challenging. In Luke 4, Jesus picked up the scroll for that day and found the scripture that declared that the spirit of the Lord was upon him for a purpose. This heralded the start of Jesus’ mission on earth.
Maybe if you are a new member to the Saint Wilfrid’s family then this is the start of your mission. Maybe you have been around for a while but this could also be your time to take on the challenge to live out a new calling or mission.
Whatever stage you are at, we pray that this year is one that you experience and recognise the favour of God in your life.
Maybe this could be the year of the Lord’s favour for us all. Remember too the challenge from Rev Cath; If God was to show you favour this year, what could you see happen?
