St. Jacobi Tidings ~ September 21, 2014
Devotion: Philippians 1:21-30
How am I supposed to act? What should I do? When we are faced with difficult circumstances in life, we will struggle to get things right. Sometimes there is not a clear right or wrong solution – sometimes you are picking between options that would all likely please the Lord if you did it in service to Him. There is a reminder here that we are to conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. This is not only a friendly reminder and a historical reference to Paul’s ministry, it is also the purpose of worship. We know that some day we will again be joined with God, but until that time we should seek every opportunity to be in his service, to be worthy of the Gospel message, and even when we suffer, we shall act in his Spirit.
Reflection: Do I fear those who oppose me?
Prayer: Comforter Lord, you have reserved me for your work, put me aside and have given me the preparation needed to bless your work on earth. Be with me in my struggles and in the moments that I am feeling far from you. Remind me that I am not fear any opposition to this good work and word that you provide. Instead allow me to grow through all struggles. Amen.
