Κύριος Notes


Purify my heart
Cleanse me from within
And make me holy
Purify my heart
Cleanse me from my sin
Deep within
Refiner's fire
My heart's one desire is to be holy
Set apart for You, Lord.
I choose to be holy,
Set apart for You my master,
Ready to do Your will.
Scripture Reflections Luke 17
6He replied, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you.

Lord I am your servant.

It is clear that faith like a mustard isn't a whole lot of faith to be talking about...even small amounts of faith nurture over time can see changes in the world and in me.

7"Suppose one of you had a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Would he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, 'Come along now and sit down to eat'? 8Would he not rather say, 'Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink'? 9Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? 10So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.' "

So what are you saying Jesus? The point of this parable is that doing what the servant is expected to do is nothing to write home and tell Mom about. It is what is normal and it is not extraordinary.

So when faith has taken root...and is growing that is what should happen that should be a normal process. Thank You Lord that your process continues in my heart and life. I am not looking for the extraordinary, but so many times Lord I settle for substandard...I guess I understand what you mean...I remain an unworthy servant who is sometimes successful at doing what clearly is my duty.

Faith and living up to it's duty in my is something that is a progressive moving target. It is dynamic and calls for more from me each time, nurturing my spirit as the challenge increases. I also notice that the risk increases as the challenge increases.

Lord Jesus I want to see some mulberry trees moving location in my life and in the life of Living Springs. Lord I believe help my unbelief...
