Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Hebrews 6:10 -20
Jesus was/is a critical development in the plot of God’s relationship with human kind. By his incarnation, ministry, death and resurrection, Jesus explained once and for all time, our relationship to our Creator, as his beloved daughters and sons. This is the ‘hope set before us’, that the writer of the letter to the Hebrews calls the steadfast anchor of the soul. It is a hope that mercy overcomes injustice, that love overcomes selfishness, that light overcomes darkness and that life ultimately triumphs over the death of the souls of the faith-full. This hope is set before all human beings, before you and me today. Will I embrace and live into this hope in each thought , word and action I perform today? Holy Spirit, help me seize the hope set out before us.
Come to me heedfully, listen, that you may have life. (Isaiah 55:3)
With God, every moment is the moment of beginning again.
