For Sunday 29 May 2016

 

As we gather for worship this Sunday the Scripture readings point us to issues of faith and works. In the Gospel, Jewish elders urge Jesus to assist a centurion because, “he is worthy to have you do this for him” (Luke 7:4). The centurion, however, sends the message, “I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. . . . But say the word, and let my servant be healed” (Luke 7:6-7). Jesus healed the servant, and was amazed at this foreigner's faith. Paul writes about some who wanted to supplement God’s grace with their own merit. Such, he says, deserve to be damned. In the Old Testament lesson Solomon prays that God would hear the prayer of all who call on him on the basis of his grace and mercy, whether Israelite or foreigner. May we be taught by the Spirit ever to cling to the mercy of the Lord and depend on his grace to heal and save.
