Cryptic Masons

God of our past and our future, thank you for good role models we discover in the Bible. Teach us to follow their example and to model their abiding love for you.
In Your name we pray, Amen.
Grand Chaplain's Weekly Message
Unrecognized and Unknown
June 17, 2007
My Companion,

We all travel through life in a very hurried pace.  Sometimes we can attend religious services, sometimes, we cannot.  However, we can always take a few minutes to thank God for allowing us to be here, and to serve our Grand Council.

Being faithful to God is often not easy. Ask Obadiah, governor in King Ahab and Queen Jezebel's palace. Jezebel was putting followers of God to death and Obadiah believed in God. Obadiah could have maintained quiet devotion and not risked life or property. Instead, with godly wisdom and faithful dedication, Obadiah risked everything to care for 100 prophets.

We learn from the 1 Kings reading that God entrusted Obadiah with this position and role. Since his youth Obadiah had worshipped God. Those who taught Obadiah to honor and obey God made it possible for God to work through him in the midst of a corrupt society. Their investment eventually showed its worth.

These little-known servants of God inspire me. They seem closer to my situation and to me than more famous people; they challenge my excuses. They are God's encouragers to me. They motivate me to teach others to faithfully serve God, unrecognized and unknown.

How are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him?

- Romans 10:14

Our faithfulness brings fellowship with God and the joy of service.
May YHShVH Bless and Keep You,
May you have a glorious Father's Day with your Father and your family,
