“Your will be done on earth as in heaven.”
St. Paul’s statement of reality, which we confess in our Epistle Reflection this morning, is also a challenge to us. Do we show that we are God’s servants? When people see how we react to troubles, difficulties and hardships, do our actions in response to these circumstances show that we are God’s servants? Any one of us could be the first, or only, person that some other ever meets, who associates their name with Jesus’. As Jesus’ ambassadors, are each of us showing that we are His servants?
This morning, we might consider whose will is done in our lives – we know how we’ve been taught to pray.
