Mid-Week Update September 16, 2020
Welcome to the Mid-Week Update.
Welcome to the Mid-Week Update. This is the season we start looking toward next year. We want 2021 to be a fruitful year by the grace of God. In view of the current slowed-down environment, some of us find ourselves, rather focusing our thoughts on the ever-present question, when will this COVID thing ever end? I hope we are not overburdened by a situation we have little control over. Rather, I hope we will embrace an attitude of waiting for God each day. The Psalmist describes this as the pathway of confidence and strength. He writes, “I shall never be shaken.”
1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall never be shaken.
We are being led to see ourselves as Christ’s body, the church in our current sermon series on the book of Ephesians. Therefore let’s remember that we actually build one another up in confidence when we wait in silence on God alone. The person who meets God everyday will bring God’s presence, and a confident attitude, with them into every conversation.
This week’s Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-16
