Jesus is building his church – even here, in Amington! – and nothing, not even a pandemic, can stop him.
Before we start repairing, like Nehemiah we must first identify where the gaps are.
We all build; in fact we were made to build, to create.
Jesus needs to and must be our focus – so let us look, let us fix our eyes on him, and on him alone.
Which light would you rather live by? The false dawn, or the true dawn?
The decision to follow Jesus and be faithful and true like him, is both a huge, life-changing decision, and dozens of tiny decisions, every day.
The Spirit wasn’t only given to give birth to the Church – the Spirit is given to keep the church alive.
The church is the army of the weak, made strong by the blood of the Lamb.
Jesus is ‘the Amen’ – he is God’s ‘Yes’ to you. God looks at us and says, ‘Yes!’
To John, prostrate on the floor as though dead, Jesus says, ‘Do not be afraid: I am the Living One.’
