Pondering for Wednesday, December 29, 2021

This is the 5th Day of Christmas

Daily Office Readings for December 29: Year 2:

Morning, Psalm 18: 1 to 20; Evening, Psalm 18: 21 to 50:

2nd Samuel 23: 13 to 17; 2nd John 1 to 13; John 2:1 to 11:

“His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5)

I agree with the Late Verna Dozier in her book, “The Dream of God,” that we, as Christians should be more concerned with following (obeying), our Lord Jesus than worshiping him. I also hold these words of the Mother of Jesus as one of two most powerful (although shortest), sermons in the Christian Testament; “Do whatever he tells you.” She is talking to the servants. Jesus gives them instructions about what to do, and they do it. Jesus also gives us, his servants, instructions about what we are to do. Will we do them?

As followers of the Christ of Christmas, we should do whatever he tells us.  Merry Christmas: Day 5

We are never to hurt or harm children, only love them, teach them, save and help them. Children are what Christmas is all about. Merry Christmas: Day 4

The testimony of John the apostle about our Lord Jesus is true; Believe.  Merry Christmas: Day 3

Let us not take our hate or ill will for another with us to our mortal death.  Merry Christmas: Day 2

Our being saved has as much to do with the birth of Jesus as it does his Resurrection from the dead.  Merry Christmas: Day 1

As we listen to what the Spirit is saying to us, let us live to love, to serve, and to teach, while pondering anew what the Almighty can do. John
