Remember that “…Christ has many services to be done. Some are easy, others are difficult. Some bring honour, others bring reproach. Some are suitable to our natural inclinations and temporal interests, others are contrary to both… Yet the power to do all these things is given to us in Christ, who strengthens us.”
Because Jesus longs for us to be of service, I invite you to join me for two evening discussions to deepen our sense of belonging at CMM as well as to prepare us to renew our Covenant relationship with God on Sunday 27 January.
7 p.m. on 23 January: Jesus’ Invitation
7 p.m. on 24 January: Jesus’ Dream
This may give us the courage to pray the most dangerous prayer we will ever pray … and the most fulfilling!
I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for you or laid aside for you,
exalted for you or brought low for you.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to your pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer,
you are mine, and I am yours.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven.
Be courageous! Alan
