Wednesday, May 22, 2013 – Psalm 89:1-18; Ruth 2:14-23; 1 Timothy 3:1-16 and Luke 13:18-30

1 Timothy 3:1-16 – 16Without any doubt, the mystery of our religion is great: He was revealed in flesh, vindicated in spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among Gentiles, believed in throughout the world, taken up in glory.

Hold on to the mystery of the faith: Jesus was born. Jesus lived. Jesus healed the sick, forgave sinners and even rose dead back to life. Jesus was arrested and tried. Jesus was crucified, dying the cruelest of death. Jesus was buried. Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to the women, to his disciples and many other faithful witnesses. Jesus ascended to where he had come from, heaven and is seated even today in glory.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”  (John 3:16-17)

Great is the mystery of the faith; hold on to it in life and in death.

Luke 13:18-30 – 18He said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what should I compare it? 19It is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in the garden; it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.”

Truly as we hold on to the mystery of faith, God multiplies and grows our faith and does great things through each of us.

So believe and know that God has done, is doing and will do great things.

Psalm 89:1-18 – 2   I declare that your steadfast love is established forever;
your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens. …..

14  Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
steadfast love and faithfulness go before you.
15  Happy are the people who know the festal shout,
who walk, O LORD, in the light of your countenance;
16  they exult in your name all day long,
and extol your righteousness.

O Lord, great is the mystery of faith. May I trust in you seeking always to grow in faith. I know that as I believe and trust you will do great things through me. O Lord God, thanks for guiding me in the faith and thus in life. Amen.
