Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
2 Corinthians 3:4-11
What is my competency level as a minister of the new covenant? As a baptised, committed follower of Christ, I have learned about the new covenant in which forgiveness replaces vengeance and mercy takes precedence over law-keeping. But how competent am I at living forgiveness and mercy in and through my connections –with God, with relatives, with colleagues and human kind in general? How competent am I in real-izing the new covenant brokered by Christ’s death on the cross, here and now the world’s present? How do I need to improve my competency as a minister of the new covenant with my life? Holy Spirit, help me be a competent minister of the new covenant.
Teach me your paths, my God, and lead me in your truth. (Psalm 25:5)
O Holy Spirit, by whose breath
Life rises vibrant out of death;
Come to create, renew, inspire;
Come kindle in our hearts your fire.
