This weekend, we have a visitor at our church who might become our new pastor of worship. He gave the choir three psalms and a chapter from Ephesians to read as "homework" for preparation. In the light of what's happening at LAC (see post below) which he couldn't have known about when he selected these readings, the following excerpts stood out to me the most:
Psalm 9:10 Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
3 Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place?
4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false.
Ephesians 4:25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body.
Psalm 133:1 How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!
Through everything, let's trust God. Let's find out and admit what our problems are and solve them together. Let's not put an idol before us that may distract us.
