PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord Jesus, You not only place our feet under Your table, You have set an example of washing Your disciples’ feet. I pray that, by Your enabling strength, I will do a better job of washing the feet of others, as their servant, in a variety of ways. Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
Yesterday I learned of the passing of former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. I was very aware of her strong Christian beliefs when she presented Carolyn Cox to the Queen as a candidate for a peerage. The Queen then elevated Carolyn to the House of Lords, where she became Deputy Speaker. The reason for all this was that Carolyn, as an educator, had championed the return of the study of the Bible into British schools. With the Prime Minister’s support, this was accomplished. It was Carolyn who, in a TV appearance on 100 Huntley Street, convinced us to enter the Sudan to free slaves and help a very needy people with food, schools and medical clinics.
I’ve just pulled up on the computer a speech by Margaret Thatcher to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. Quote, “Reading recently, I came across the starkly simple phrase, ‘Christianity is about spiritual redemption, not about social reform’……most Christians would regard it as their personal Christian duty to help their fellow men and women. They would regard the lives of children as a precious trust. These duties do not come from any secular legislation passed by Parliament, but from being a Christian.” Actually I think it would be great for every blog participator to read the entire speech. You can find it here.
Yours for placing our feet under the King’s table, because of His amazing grace,
