Victoria Bush Fires 4

The fires continue in certain areas. Firefighters continue to work long hours. They are doing a great job and making a real difference in these fire battles. They are heroes.

The relief workers are amazing too. Untiring, faithful and deliberate, these workers prove the grace of God with their willingness to give themselves to others unequivocally. It would be preposterous for them to select who to help on any basis and they do not.

God's love is indiscriminate and unconditional. Avail yourself to His grace and be set free from the selectivity and discrimination that this world promises.

2 Peter 1:4 (MSG)
4 We were also given absolutely terrific promises to pass on to you—your tickets to participation in the life of God after you turned your back on a world corrupted by lust.

I pray that when the immediate crisis is behind us, that the emotional and spiritual needs of those caring for the victims are remembered.

We are praying for you all here in the UK.

We were reminded this morning in chapel that our prayers are effective and useful. This really helps overcome feelings of being useless during this crisis.

So pray for the people of Victoria, for those who have lost family, homes, who have lost their 'world' and pray for those who seek to offer some comfort and assistance.
