About Today Readings

Ephesians 1:15-23. Psalm 8:2-7. Luke 12:8-12.

You gave your Son authority over all your creation – Psalm 8:2-7.

‘May he enlighten the eyes of your mind.’

God, who is great, loves and upholds life, and is our constant example, our hope. Paul reminds us that Christ, installed by God in heaven, is above earthly rule, authority, dominion. Christ’s reign is beyond our human notions of power. His greatness is all-encompassing, all-embracing, for all time.

And we, the church, his body, are one with him. We learn also that we need to place our trust in the Holy Spirit, who guides us. In faith we experience the fullness, the totality of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in all and for all time.

Lord, we wonder at your greatness and trust in your unending love.
