Sound bites from the Bible

The Word of the Lord came to me saying “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart, I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."                                                                       Jeremiah 1, 4,5

In the season of Advent, as we prepare our hearts and homes for the coming of Jesus, perhaps we should think about God’s plans for us as individuals.  Just as He knew Jeremiah in the womb, he surely knew us too and knows  what we can become, if we trust Him and do his bidding.  During Advent, let us listen in those few quiet moments and search our hearts, willing to hear His call.


Sound bites from the Bible

During August there was panic and flurry followed by great relief or disappointment among young people everywhere as they anxiously waited for exam or assessment results. A lot of stress was generated by this one subject, though there are many other stressors in life.

What does the bible say about stress? Well, when Jesus had had enough of preaching and healing he often went to the mountains to pray and be alone with his father. Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. After leaving them, he went into the hills to pray. (Mark 6:45-46)

On worry, Jesus said simply, don’t do it. Therefore I tell you do not worry about your life, what you will eat or about your body what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens. They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn , yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds. Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life. Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest. (Luke 12:22-26)

Obviously, life today is not as simple as that, but at times of stress we should try to remember Jesus’ words on the subject.

Sound bites from the Bible

Luke 18:15-17

People were also bringing babies to Jesus to have him touch them.  When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them.  But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

This text is often quoted at baptisms and at other services where the intention is to make children welcome, but there is a much deeper meaning involved.  Are we to suppose that the kingdom of heaven will consist of nothing but children?  Of course not.  Jesus’ meaning here is that just as a little child trusts completely in its parent for all its needs, shelter food and love, so we must trust completely in the Father for all our needs.  If we did this how much simpler would our lives be?  Stress would become a thing of the past, the need for money to “keep up with the Joneses wouldn’t exist and loving one another as our Father loves us would take the I out of the word sin.

The passage finishes with verse 17: I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never receive it. Will you put your trust in the Lord.

Lynn Slater, Authorised Lay Minister
