God reigns

The 14th Sunday after Pentecost

LORD God, you created heaven and earth by your great power and outstretched arm; nothing is too hard for you! ~ Jeremiah 32:17 (CEB)

Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you.” ~ Matthew 28:18-20 (MSG)

God reigns over everything and he's assigned us to share that good news.

LORD God, thank you for including us and giving us responsibility as you oversee the world. I confess that I don't always prioritize that responsibility. I let my own life preferences get in the way of yours. Help me to sort through all of that so my life is totally aligned with your priorities. I'm going to share the good news of Jesus and the kingdom of God way of life. Amen.
