Psalm am: 40, 54
pm: 51 Deuteronomy 10:12-22 Hebrews 4:11-16
John 3:22-36

So now, O Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you? Only to fear
the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD
your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the LORD your God and his decrees that I am commanding you today, for your own well-being.

All three readings today concern the Christian life.
The readings remind us that how we lead our life means that our
commitment to Jesus continues after we leave church. We live
our faith each and every day trying to follow Christ’s example.
Our life is lived not for our own glory but for God’s glory.
Christ was able to lead the perfect life. However no matter how
hard we try we cannot lead the perfect life. God knows this that
is why He sent Jesus. He is our High priest who is able to understand
our weakness and forgive our short comings. John says in
his gospel. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with
boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace in time of
need.
