A reflection on responsibility

Reflections for the day

1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.

Romans 8:1-2

Life through the Spirit

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.


A reflection on responsibility (one of several)

Heavenly Father,

We are able to see in a way that is clear that  Our Lord Jesus Christ, died for us in order to save us from all of our sins, and to show us the way to you, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that Our Lord Jesus Christ, died in a manner which caused him pain. We are able to see in a way that is clear that Our Lord Jesus Christ, died in a manner which caused him suffering, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that Our Lord Jesus Christ, died in a manner which caused him heartbreak.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who believe in your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who believe in a resurrection. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who believe that the death of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is one that is largely ignored.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that we have a responsibility towards you, and there are many who are able to see in a way that is clear that this responsibility is one that is enduring, and there are many who are able to see in a way that is clear that a responsibility is one of looking after another. We are able to see in a way that is clear that this responsibility is one that enables some to use a gift you have bestowed upon some, and those gifts are ones that are to do with money, and those gifts are ones to do with time, and those gifts are ones to do with energy, and those gifts are ones to do with talent, and those gifts are ones to do with bodies, and those gifts are ones to do with minds, and those gifts are ones to do with your Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask you to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask you to guide many to balance a work life with a private life, and we ask you to guide many to invest all that we have in you.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many have a position of responsibility, and this position of responsibility is one that often carries a sense of power, and this position of responsibility is one that often places a person in the eye of the public. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that those who are in a position of responsibility, and those who are in a position of power, will reflect carefully upon a responsibility to another, and we hope and we pray that those who are in a position of responsibility, and those who are in a position of power, will turn to you always.

Heavenly Father, there are some who are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear, and there are some who desire to be more responsible, and there are many who desire to be more obedient. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that those who are unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear will reflect upon all that is said in the name of you, Our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to yourself, Our Heavenly Father, all that has been said in the name of the Father, and in the name of the Son, and in the name of the Holy Ghost, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.
