Love Is Our Mission
As our Academic year comes to an end we remember the simple truth in our missions in life.
Another school year is coming to a close, but before we depart for that poolside Oasis that we have dreamed for the past twelve months, we take a moment to pause. At this time of year we can often be so excited to get a way from it all that we occasionally fail to analyse our efforts and general lives up until that point. So at some point in the next week or so, or perhaps as you read this, I would like to invite you to take a moment to reflect and perhaps take stock on your life in the past few months. Find yourself wherever you are in a space of peace and relaxation and then ask yourself the following three questions:
What have I done?
What am I doing?
Where is God Leading me?
Then I would invite you to read the following:
A reading from the first letter of John
My dear friends, we must love each other. Love comes from God, and when we love each other, it shows that we have been given new life. We are now God’s children, and we know him. God has shown his love for us When he sent his only Son into the world to give us life.
Real love is not our love for God, but his love for us. God sent his Son to be the sacrifice by which our sins are forgiven.
Dear friends, since God loved us this much, we must love each other.
God is love.
If we keep on loving others, we will stay one in our hearts with God, and he will stay one with us.
The word of the Lord
We are all born and made for a purpose but chief amongst all others is that we are born to love one another and Love God and thus God will be in our hearts in all that we do.
So until we rejoin in September, remember this passage in all that you do and let it act as your guide in your future endeavours.
As our school year comes to an end, we thank you Lord for all that we have achieved. As we depart for our break we pray that we can find renewal and peace so that as we return we are ready and willing to continue our work in your name and in the name of Jesus Christ your Son, and our saviour
