An Advent Request – Good News for December 14

14 12 2010

Matthew 21:28-32

Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people, “What is your opinion? A man had two sons. He came to the first and said, ‘Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.’ The son said in reply, ‘I will not,’ but afterwards he changed his mind and went. The man came to the other son and gave the same order. He said in reply, ‘Yes, sir,’ but did not go. Which of the two did his father’s will?”

They answered, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Amen, I say to you, tax collectors and prostitutes are entering the Kingdom of God before you. When John came to you in the way of righteousness, you did not believe him; but tax collectors and prostitutes did. Yet even when you saw that, you did not later change your minds and believe him.”

The Daily Path: On this day in Advent I’d like to ask each of you to pray for a member of our spiritual fellowship. He and his family are in a great deal of pain following the tragic death of his sister. Tracy has left this world. Her pain on earth has ended. Let us ask God to wrap her in his promise of infinite love and forgiveness. And we ask for His grace to flow through our brother Geoff in these trying days so that he may be a pillar of strength for the family.

If there is someone in your own life who is in pain… go to them. Be the light.
