We are the stranger. The strangers appeared to Sarah and Abraham. God appears to us, in the course of return, due season, the living time comes around.
We look to find favour, in this stage of life, in this awkward time of pregnant moments. The story of Sarah is late blessing in the stream of time.
We look to find God’s love poured into our hearts. We look to find promise, righteousness, peace, hope of sharing glory in the future.
We look to find Jesus in the cities and villages, seeking labourers, go to Gentiles and Samaritans, believers and seekers,
Go to come to us today. Go to grant authority. Sent out as sheep into the wolves, so be wise, give without payment. The Gospel is free, human need has no price. Just needs to be met in the realm of the kingdom.
When there is need, Jesus shows compassion, God provides avenues, meet the needs of others, call to mission, faith in action, agency of grace
