Reflection for the Week- September 29th 2008

God’s new city measurements emphasize its perfection and completeness as the dwelling place of God. John continues to describe in further detail, at the very limits of human language, the reality of the Holy City (Rev. 21:15-21). It is made of pure gold, transparent as glass, with walls of jasper, and visible foundations decorated with a list of precious stones.

The general picture of God’s city is one of magnificence, brilliance, purity and the assured rest of completion as all waiting is now translated into the present. In the midst of the great city there will be direct fellowship with God and the Lamb. The ‘not yet’ will be ‘already.’ In the literal and figurative sense, blurred vision will be corrected, healed, and brought to perfection. God will dwell with his people, and they with him in everlasting fellowship.

Reflection for the Week- September 22nd 2008

We should neither be reading every event on the world’s stage as end times prophecy, nor should we be naive. Interpreting the times calls for Christians to have minds of wisdom and hearts of patient endurance, so that we can continue to trust in both God’s faithful working out of his purposes and the victory that believers already participate in because of the blood of the Lamb.

Reflection for the Week- September 15th 2008

The tragedy of monologue is that it impoverishes our spirituality. A one dimensional perspective is ruinous for living spirituality as it robs us of what is really true. We are made by God to be in dialogue – God and self, self and others, others and world.

God is the great sculptor in time. Catch the vision of this imagery for yourself and live it out as you sculpt a life in time.

Reflection for the Week- September 1st 2008

God is the mystery of the world. What a wonder that we have in Scripture and nature the knowledge of God that we do. Praise God today for the gracious revelation that has been given to us and may we act on what we have, as we await the fullness of the future.
