Grace to you dear friends!
"Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think,
to him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus to all generations,
for ever and ever. Amen (Ephesians 3: 20-21)."

WORD FOR THE WEEK

Hope

A humbling experience is always the best opportunity to look up, up for salvation. The “heights” is the place from where salvation comes (Psalm 121). Like the thief on the right hand side of Jesus, hope propels us to ask to be taken up and not to be taken down. The below is the beehive of despondency. Most of the conversion stories in the bible (whether it is of national or individual scale) resonate with a humbling experience. It is true with the conversion story of the people of Nineveh (Book of Jonah) as with Saul on the way to Damascus (Acts of the Apostles, 9).
