Amaze you

The verse we finished with last Sunday has stayed with me through this week. Luke 5 v 26

‘Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, “We have seen remarkable things today.”

I have been considering what part we have to play in this. Obviously, only God can do these wonderful things through His Holy Spirit but there are clearly ways we can aid God’s work. As we meet we need to be both expectant and prayerful. Too often church becomes routine and we go through the motions instead of lifting our eyes to a spiritual plain to see what God wants church to be about. When we realise the transforming power of His Word and God’s desire to make Himself known to each one of us, the joy we can find in worshipping Him and the love of God that is found in our unity and fellowship together, it should cause us to come in anticipation of the remarkable things He will do in us and amongst us.

My prayer is that He will amaze you this morning.
