A reflection on Church (its conformity)

Reflections for the day

1 Corinthians 3:11

 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:7

 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.

The base trunk is our relationship with the Lord. Everything above it, all the branches, leaves and fruit rest in this relationship. It is out of our relationship with God that every kind of prayer comes forth. It is interesting that Jesus spoke of his relationship with his followers in similar terms. He said, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)


A reflection on Church (its conformity)

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us, We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and we acknowledge that  thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that overspills into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour, in thou way that thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all.

Heavenly Father, thou hath created thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and all things unseen by all of Mankind. Thou art Our Heavenly Father that sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father that knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is in possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, thou hath sent into thou world thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins. Thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power and for thou mightiness. Thou art our Heavenly Father who is our redeemer.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of thou Church, and it is at this time we reflect upon the conformity of thou Church. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church means many things to some, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church means one or two things to some, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church means little to some, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some thou Church means nothing at all.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that there are many who desire to uphold thou Church that was established following the ascension of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we acknowledge that there are many who desire that thou Church is one that is attended, and we acknowledge that there are many who desire that thou Church is one that is meaningful, and we acknowledge that there are many who desire that thou Church is one that remains sacred.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church is one where there is a need to worship thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church is one where there is a need to pray to thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church is one where thou Holy Spirit is moving, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church is one where all of Mankind can be nourished in a way that is spiritual.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church is for all of Mankind, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou hath created all of Mankind for a purpose, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou purpose is for all of Mankind to draw closer to thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that by drawing closer to thou, thou glory is one that is evident.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church is a gathering of thou people, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Church is a scattering of thou people, and a scattering of thou people is one that enables a self to be a witness of thou word of thou, Our Heavenly Father, and a scattering is one that can be seen in a life of a self that is led daily.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we pray for thou Church, and we ask thou to guide a self to draw closer to thou, and we ask thou to guide a self to be thou witness of thou word that is of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we ask thou to guide a self to emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We hope and we pray that thou Church is one that will remain constant, and we hope and we pray that thou Church is one that will uphold all of thou teachings, and we hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and who governs all who are on thou earth that we live on, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Heavenly Father,
    We are aware that the local church has been at the heart of the community for generations. However, nowadays it has become less so. May we be enabled to attract more to come into thy churches particularly at this time of celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of our Queen. She has been staunch in her faith and dedication to serving the Commonwealth and is such a good example to us all. Amen.
