Easter Monday

When Thomas encountered the resurrected Lord, he said, “My Lord and my GOD”. (John 20:28)  He worshipped Christ.  He “hallowed the name”.  It should be our daily prayer that all men do the same.  Predicting the cross, Jesus said, “If I be lifted up, I will draw ALL men to myself.” (John 12:32) No one was left out!  No loss acceptable!  As we enter this new week with Easter assurance still ringing in our hearts, are we concerned that so many still do not worship God?  Unaware, unconcerned, living secular lives, are these people the focus of our prayers?  It is a mistake to talk to people about God before we have talked with God about  people.  The Great Commandment is to love God with ALL our heart.  The Great Petition (and the first in the Lord’s Prayer) is that ALL men do so.  Is someone on your heart this morning who does not hallow God’s name?
