Now here's Alistair with the closing thought. In the 17th century, Samuel Rutherford was a godly minister. He died by the time he was 61. And one of his great legacies were letters that he wrote to members of his congregation, many of whom were members of the aristocracy. And he had a particularly long dialog with a lady called lady Ken Muir who, whose marriage was a disaster who had lived with great bouts of depression and sadness. And in one of his letters to it, he says, madam, when you are come to the other side of the water, and have sat down your foot on the shore of glorious eternity. And look back again to the waters and to your wearisome journey. And so see in that clear glass of endless glory nearer to the bottom of God's wisdom. Then you will be forced to say, if God had done otherwise with me, then he had done. I would never have come. To the enjoying of this crown of glory. Gracious God, I pray that you will help us to take Jesus at his word when he says to his disciples, your heavenly father knows that you need these things. Help us to turn to you in genuine repentance to repent of our arrogance and our pride. To repent of how we choose to worship our own little substitute gods. Rather than to bow before you. And grand to his childlike faith. And the joy of discovering what it is to be able to name you as our father in heaven, not simply as a result of creation. But as a result of your redeeming love, the redemption in our ethical question that is found through the substitutionary atonement provided by Jesus on the cross. And then let us go out into the week that lies ahead, resting, and trusting. Avowedly, in the fight the father knows best. Before we pray in Christ's name, amen. And bob lupine, thanks for listening today. There's a lot of behind the scenes work in every successful movie or play. And in our lives, that's true as well. Join us tomorrow when we'll take a behind the scenes look at Esther's story. The Bible teaching of Aleister beg is furnished by truth for life. Where the learning is for living.
