for Thursday 25th June 2020

Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.

 
Good morning.

Our beautiful church remains closed for the time being, as we all play our part in fighting the invisible enemy of Covid 19.

As we continue to work from home, or on the front line with our brave key workers, I hope our daily prayers and readings from the Bible, bring you hope, some comfort and sustain you during this difficult time.

Our church remains empty, but together, in a virtual world, we give thanks to our Lord and pray for those whose lives have been touched during this time.
Blessings to you and your family.

Bible Reading

Matthew 7.21-end
Concerning Self-Deception
‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord”, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only one who
does the will of my Father in heaven. On that day many will say to me, “Lord, Lord, did we not
prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in
your name?” Then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.”
Hearers and Doers
‘Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who
built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that
house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. And everyone who hears these
words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—
and great was its fall!’
Now when Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were astounded at his teaching,
for he taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.

 
 

Prayer for today

Remember, Lord, what you have wrought in us and not what we deserve, and as you have
called us to your service make us worthy of our calling through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
