Romans 8:26â€“39 offers strong words of comfort for all who suffer and who see little concrete evidence for hope. The encouragement is to never give up because even in our weakness the Holy One is there to strengthen us with a love from which we can never be separated. Matthew 13:31â€“33, 44â€“52 gives testimony to the often hidden and subtle power of the Realm of God at work in our lives and world. The parables tell that the reality of Godâ€™s realm is at work now, and we are called to decide if this is the realm in which we choose to live.
During the Thought for the Day, we will be sharing in a blessing of the Bibles.
