ABM PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday October 28
Perhaps the most difficult thing in the Christian’s life is to submit to the will of God and to acknowledge God’s sovereignty over all. Few of us will suffer what Job suffered, but his story serves to illustrate that our challenges are not without purpose nor is our perseverance in our faith and trust in God without recognition. Even the blind man had to call out to Jesus twice before he was healed!
Pray that we can empty ourselves of ourselves, thereby allowing us to taste and see that the Lord is good!
