It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Reflection on Hebrews 10:5-7

The earlier readings this Advent from Thessalonians and Philippians were preparations for the return of Christ. The reading from Hebrews this week shifts the emphasis to the incarnation, when Christ came into the world.

The words spoken by Christ in the verses from Hebrews refer to Psalm 40:6-8. What God desires is not empty worship, but true worship filled with following the will of God.
