Vicar Message - November 2017

Dearly Beloved in Christ,
Some of our Rituals and Practices of the Church worship like signing of cross, bowing of head, reverence to the Eucharistic elements, and kiss of peace are very important in their spiritual meaning. An understanding of what we believe and what we do are essential for experiencing the real spirit of worship. For example, kiss of peace is the symbolic action of reconciliation. It is through the faithful and sincere worship; the church retains its inner spiritual vitality. Learning to listen God’s voice is a key factor in our spiritual growth. When we are silent in the presence of God and the Word, we are experiencing his wisdom, insights and the renewal of our strength in daily living. We are not always happy to discuss our sin. Sin is more than the things we do or do not do. It is also a mindset. Our sinful tendencies result in our separation from God and fellow beings.
Confessing our sin with genuine repentance is the only way to be free from sin. God knows each of us have plenty of sin to deal with. Hiding our sins is not pleasing to God. He wants us to open with Him in prayer, accepting our weakness, and seeking help. Normally in our worship service, the confession is in public. While we are involved in public confession, we can genuinely repent for our sins privately. Through our confession, we recognize our failures, sincerely repent and turn away from such sins and renounce any evil effect that occurred in our life because of sin and seek forgiveness. Unconfessed sins become destructive poison in our lives not only spiritually but also emotionally and physically. Repentance and confession are always starting points for a restored fellowship with God. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness “. (1. John 1:9)
May God bless us all.
