Lantern To My Feet

#182 #psalm119 “Your word is a lantern to my feet and a light upon my path.” #light sustains us, it leads the way, it highlights things, it helps us to learn and grow by providing light to read, sunlight is nourishing, light is necessary! God gave us #eternallight and protects us from darkness. #godisourlight (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)

The Ten Commandments

#180 #thetencommandments provide the basis for a moral code. It is easy to think of moral code, and law which later developed, as a set of rules which you must keep…and which failing to will result in punishment. It is more than that though. Moral code and law is life-giving for all who abide by it, and it brings great freedom. That freedom is lost when the code is broken. God loves us so much, He wants us to live in the true freedom which He designed for us. “Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes and I shall keep it to the end.” #psalm119 (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)

Privilege of Serving

#122 “I am your servant; O grant me understanding that I may know your testimonies.” #psalm119
It seems a little old fashioned to think of servants today, and yet Christians are called to have a #servantheart. For the last two weeks I have been serving in my college community as Church Sacristan but today was my last day and I can hang my cassock back up for a while. As I have served, I have had my eyes opened to so many things, both on a practical and relational level. People who walk through the doors bring the days story or testimony with them. They are looking for God in different ways, needing different things from Him and offering different things to Him. It is a true privilege to watch facilitate and to listen as appropriate. #serving in this way has been one of the most lovely things I have done so far – I highly recommend it!
