Julius Caesar Ė Silver
The distinction is made between what is Godís and
what is Caesarís. The decision remains: who shall be served? If it is God, then
Godís will shall be done. If it is
Caesar, then Caesar shall reign. Idolatry occurs when the distinction is
blurred. When put to the test, Jesus simply asks the question: to whom will
allegiance be given?
We are drawn to worship by a Reality unseen.
The One we call God is beyond human description.
God is more than we can ever imagine.
We sense Godís presence as we meditate.
We gather in awe to bring our songs of
The Creator of all things has given us
We are amazed by the wonders around us.
We feel Godís presence as we sing together.
We are summoned by One who is just and
The Ruler of all worlds expects us to
How amazing that God chooses us as messengers.
We know God is with us as we work for justice.
of the Day
Let us pray.
Appear to us here, God of
all worlds, for we need your assurance and blessing. We seek the strength to do
what is right and just. We long to see you, even though we sense that a god we
could see would be only a tiny part of you whose Spirit fills all time and
space. We want you to have a face like ours, so we find your face in Jesus, and
occasionally in one another. We want to be certain that our decisions and
actions are right, but often it is only long afterwards that we realize you
were with us. O God, we want to open to all you are revealing to us now. Amen.
