A reflection on sacrifice

Reflections for the day

John 14:15-21

“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever – the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

Matthew 18:1-3

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

 

 “There is no other activity in life so important as that of prayer. Every other activity depends upon prayer for its best efficiency.”

M.E. Andross

 

A reflection on sacrifice

Heavenly Father,

We are thankful that thou art almighty, and we are thankful that thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness, and we raise thou name on high to thou.

Heavenly Father, thou sent thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, into thou world to save Mankind from all sin. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died upon a cross, and we acknowledge that the death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, upon a cross was one that can be described as one that epitomises sacrifice, and the sacrifice is one that was made for all Mankind.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is at one with thou, and we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is at one with thou Holy Spirit, and we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is able to be at one with all, if all are able to turn a back upon a sin, and draw nearer to thou.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that in order for Mankind to be at one with thou that there is a need to address all areas of concern that there are in a life of a self that causes a self to turn a back on thou.

Heavenly Father, there are times in a life of a self when a self can be tempted, and there are times in a life of a self when a self may desire a thing of the flesh, and there are times in a life of a self when a self is unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear an area of concern that needs to be addressed.

Heavenly Father, much of what happens in a life of a self is for some less than desirable, and much of what happens in a life of a self is for some a cause of concern, and much of what happens in a life of a self can cause a self to doubt, and much of what happens in a life of a self means a self is unable to be at one with thou.

Heavenly Father, there will be a time in the future when many will desire to be thou obedient servant, and there will be a time in the future when many will desire to lay down a life for thou. We acknowledge that in order to be at one with thou, a self will need to lay down a life for thou, and we acknowledge that in order to lay down a life for thou, a self will need to make what is considered to be a sacrifice.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that for much of the time a self is unable to see a way forward  in a way that is clear what a self needs to do in order to lay down a life for thou, and much of the time a self is unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear a sacrifice that a self needs to make is one that can be described as a desire of the flesh, and much of the time a self is unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear a sacrifice that a self needs to make is one that can be described as one that relate to a worldly possession, and much of the time a self is unable to see a way forward in a way that is clear a sacrifice that a self needs to make is one that can be described as one that relates to a temptation of thou world that Mankind lives in.

Heavenly Father,there will be a time in the future when all of Mankind will be judged for a life that was led, and there will be a time in the future when all of Mankind will be expected to say sorry for the error of a way, and there will be a time in the future when all of Mankind will be expected to make the changes that are necessary in a life of a self, in order to be at one with thou.

Heavenly Father, much of the changes that are necessary in a life of a self are ones where a self will need to make a sacrifice in order to be at one with thou, and much of the changes that are necessary in a life of a self are ones that will cause a self to be separated from a life that was led in terms of turning a back on all that is sinful, and in terms of turning a back upon a relationship with another that is less than desirable in the eyes of thou, Our Heavenly Father, and much of the changes that are necessary in a life of a self are ones that will cause a difficulty with a loved one.

Heavenly Father, there will be a time in the future when many will desire to be at one with thou, and there will be a time in the future when many will desire to be at one with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and there will be a time in the future when many will desire to be at one with thou Holy Spirit, and there will be a time in the future when many will desire to be united with a loved one that has departed for thou place known as thou Heavenly place.

Heavenly Father, there are a number of passages in thou Scriptures which are ones that describe that there will be a separation from thou, Our Heavenly Father, and there are a number of passages in thou Scriptures which are ones that describe that there will be a separation from thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and there are a number of passages in thou Scriptures which are ones that describe that there will be a separation from thou Holy Spirit, and there are a number of passages in thou Scriptures which are ones that describe a separation from a loved one if a self is unable to be at one with thou.

Heavenly Father, there will be a time in the future when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, will return to thou world in order to judge all of Mankind, and there will be a time in the future when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, will be upheld as thou Saviour and will be upheld as thou Redeemer of all sin, and there will be a time in the future when many will see the error of a way, and will say sorry for the error of a way, and will repent for the error of a way.

Heavenly Father, many need to be more able, and many need to be more willing to turn to thou, and many need to be more able, and many need to be more willing to turn a back on thou world that doth lead a self astray, and many need to be more able, and many need to be more willing to make a sacrifice that is needed, in order for a self to be at one with thou.

Heavenly Father, there will be a time in the future when many will desire thou to guide a self in a life, and there will be a time in the future when many will desire thou to help a self to recognise the error of a way, and there will be a time in the future when many will desire thou to help a self to say sorry for the error of a way, and there will be a time in the future when many  will desire thou to help a self to draw closer to thou.

Heavenly Father, we uphold all that hath been spake, in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is thou way, and who is thou truth, and who is thou life, and who is thou way to thou, and we uphold all that hath been spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

A reflection on being led astray

“Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” 

A reflection on being led astray

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou love is there for each and every one of us. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that endures, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is eternal. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and 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 over spills into a relationship, and 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 art Our Heavenly Father that knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father that sees all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father that hath possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died for all of Mankind to save all of Mankind from all sins, and we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died for all of Mankind to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. We acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou, a self needs to be pure in a heart, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou, a self needs to be pure in a mind, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou, a self needs to be pure in a deed, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou, a self must be able to forgive another, in order for a self to be forgiven by thou.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of being led astray. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal to all of Mankind that in a time gone by that many were led astray, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal to all of Mankind that in a time gone by that many turned a back on thou. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal to all of Mankind that thou apostle St Paul was able to see in a way that is clear that there were many who were led astray, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal to all of Mankind that thou apostle St Paul was able to see in a way that is clear that there were many who had turned a back on thou. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal to all of Mankind that thou apostle St Paul desired for thou people to remain steadfast in a faith of thou, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal to all of Mankind that thou apostle St Paul wrote a letter to a number of thou churches, and a letter was one that expressed a desire for thou people to turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many  are led astray, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are led astray in thought, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are led astray in what is said, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are led astray in what is done.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that much of what that leads a self astray  is commonly described as sin, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for all of Mankind to turn to thou, and for a self to say sorry for a wrong doing, and we acknowledge that thou desire is for a self to make a change in a life that is necessary, in order for a self to remain on thou path, which a path that  is straight, and which is a path that is narrow, toward thou light which is one that is eternal.

Heavenly Father, at a time in the future, many will desire to be thou obedient servant, and at a time in the future, many will desire to lay down a life for thou.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to see the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to say sorry for the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to repent for a sin.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are unable to see that a life that emulates thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is a life that is desirable, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are unable to see that a life that emulates thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is a life that is uplifting, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are unable to see that a life that emulates thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is a life that can bring what is described as a peace which is inner, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many are unable to see that a life that emulates thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is a life that can bring what is described as a contentment which is inner.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will reflect upon the need to turn to thou always, and we hope and we pray that many will reflect upon the need to put thou first in all that is thought, and in all that is said, and in all that is done.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to focus on thou always, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to turn a back on a self, and we ask thou to grant many a wisdom to discern, and we ask thou to guide many to remain silent at a time that it is necessary to remain silent, and we ask thou to guide many to choose a word carefully at all times.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that is spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and we uphold all that is spake in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is thou way, and who is thou truth, and who is thou life, and who shows all of Mankind thou way to thou, and we uphold all that is spake in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.
