2021 Our Relationship
 
 
August 8, 2021
Eleventh Sunday of Pentecost
 
"Our Relationship...Eternal Life"
 
Scriptures: 
1 Kings 19:4-8   Psalm 34:1-8
Ephesians 4:25-5:2     John 6:35, 41-51
 

Jesus continues his “bread of life” teachings with his religious community by explaining how through him the bread of heaven (Manna) that would last only for the day would become eternal through faith. Jesus declares that he is that “bread of life” that came from heaven to give to the world the gift of eternal life. He is inviting everyone to step into faith in this gift and eternal life. The Psalm reinforces this message by reminding us that God is both good and will deliver us from our fears.

Daily Devotion
Monday, August 2, 2021
 

Psalm 107 paints a beautiful picture of the creation that God has given us to be able to sustain us. I am sure that we are all no strangers to the news of the ways that our Earth is changing. The water is rising in our oceans, the temperature of our lands are increasing greatly, the gifts that we have received from God seem to be at great risk right now. The problem is far greater than we can handle alone, but it impacts all of creation. It is important to see how we can help protect and heal our creation, through prayer see how God might be calling us to be able to help others, and work in community to protect us all. Our climate impacts our neighbors, the food they might have, the comfort that they have living. The Earth that we live on, in the Universe that we exist in, is the greatest testament of intentional love, but we have to do our part in helping love the Earth in return. It seems so great and overwhelming, but our hope in God tells us that we must continue to protect our creation for the sake of the world. Prayer: God, show us the ways that you might be calling us to care for your creation better. Give us strength to continue to fight for a safer Earth, and provide for the neighbors around us. Thank you for always providing a bountiful creation for us all, show us how to protect that very creation. Amen
