Psalm 34:1- 3, 8
I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
With all my heart I will praise the Lord;
Let all who are helpless, listen and be glad.

Praise the Lord, you his servants;   praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be praised, both now and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.

What was the most memorable meal you ever ate?
Everybody has one, or a few, where everything just came together perfectly — the food, the setting and the company.  These meals created memories that we treasure for the rest of our lives!

What do you think the disciples of Jesus would say, looking back at the end of their lives, was their most memorable meal?

Christ calls us to come and find rest in worship,
to find the wisdom that Christ Jesus can teach of life,
to become selfless and generous and
to return to the world and carry his burden, to serve!
Let us worship God.

Christ ordained two sacraments namely Baptism and Holy Communion. They respectively succeed the two sacraments in the Old Testament, namely Circumcision and the Passover feast.

 In Psalm 42 the poet is panting in the same way that a deer pants for shade and water as it flees from the hunter on a hot summer day in the semi-deserts of Palestine. But like the deer in flight, so this psalmist cannot rest next to the cool stream of water he needs to save his life.


As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.  My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?     Psalms42:1-2

 Without hope our lives turn into despair.  But knowing Christ gives us hope.
We start to hope again when we in faith know Jesus Christ and we receive his peace through the knowledge of his salvation.

 We never escape the presence of God!  He sees us everywhere and hears us wherever we are.  Whether we sit, stand, or lie down, God knows our actions, appearance, words and ways, our motives, our attitudes and our plans.

 Lamentations 3: 25   The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him..

This verse in Lamentations 3 is about faith in a God that finds me, when life is hard.  God will reach out to you in the midst of a hard time, because he is a God who seeks and finds. We believe in a finding God.
