This Week’s Reflection: “Bring to perfection in our hearts the spirit of adoption as your sons and daughters that we may merit to enter into the inheritance which you have promised.” (Collect)

When we least expect Him, God surprises us, just as he surprised Isaiah with His gentleness, rather than a show of power. St Paul means us as well when he talks about his ‘brothers of Israel’, for we are the ones, adopted as sons, given the glory of the covenants, to whom the promises were made, and Christ is our brother. This is a huge responsibility; we have a duty to respond to all that has been promised to us. How strong is our faith? Do we set out, like Peter, full of confidence in Jesus’ gentleness, but fail at the first sign of adversity and become angry or aggressive?

God is gentle with us; we, too, should respond with gentleness to others and show them the face of God.
