Acts 20:28-38; Psalm 68; John 17:11-19
We’re not on our own
Both readings today carry a sense of warning – things are going to get difficult for the followers of Jesus: both from outside the church and, as Paul indicates, from within. But both readings also stress that it’s not going to be a case of “everyone for themselves”. God is with us to protect us. That does not mean we can sit back and leave everything to God – but it does mean that we do not, and should not, aim to rely totally on our own resources to cope with all the challenges we will face.
