Good Friday Walk of Witness
We went of the Walk of Witness through the town this morning, behind the cross and a banner for ‘Churches together in Our Town’ and an open air service in the town centre.
There were Anglicans, Catholics, Methodists, Baptists and Free Evangelicals, whose ministers all took a turn in the service. We sang two traditional hymns and a modern one. I tend to prefer the older hymns, although it always comes as a slight shock when I find that a hymn that I consider ‘traditional’ because I sang it at school is only from the 1950s and was thus new and modern at the time. But at Easter I do quite like this one. Verse One and chorus:-
From Heaven you came, helpless babe,
Entered our world, your glory veiled;
Not to be served but to serve,
And give your life that we might live.
This is our God
The Servant King,
He calls us now
To follow Him,
To bring our lives
As a daily offering
Of worship to
The Servant King.
If I had to bring just one thing that I don’t like about Allah that verse shows what.
God has a son, Jesus Christ, and we are all His children.
Allah may be “the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (and Colours)” but his creations are not his children.
His creations are his slaves.
But our Lord is King and serves us, and we worship Him.
