I’m reading thru this scripture reading plan if you haven’t selected one for the #vista40 Days. What strikes me, that has been certainly observed by others is the independent actions of Eve and the passive response of Adam. We are compelled time and again throughout scripture to stick together…that in community there is truth and safety. The rugged individual hero of pop fiction, gets shot and killed in reality. Yet we are called to action and to speak. God’s man and God’s woman are not to stand idly by, but to act in faith and to speak the truth in love. Let’s move together for the sake of Christ.
Father, bless the church today. Make yourself known to the men and to the women today in the midst of whatever circumstances they have. If there is difficulty give them joy, if there is comfort give them joy! Give us certainty Lord in our hearts that you are present, that you are strong and that you are good. Change our hearts to be a bit more like yours today. Thank you God.
