For All the Saints - November, 27 2018

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

This Thursday’s readings kick off the new church year, and begin to anticipate Sunday’s Advent 1 theme. Among Thursday’s lessons, we will read the following, from 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10:

“For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him.”

Following a reminder that Jesus will return “like a thief in the night” that draws from Jesus’ own language from Matthew 24, the Thessalonian Christians are reminded of their standing before God. While Jesus’ return will be a fearful thing for those who have rejected him, for God’s children it is the fulfillment of his promise to come again and take them to live with him!

As God’s children, we need not fear Jesus’ return. “Whether we are awake or asleep” – Literally, whether he returns at night or in the daytime; and figuratively, whether we are alive or dead – The sure and certain promise is that we will live with him. This is the final chapter in God’s story of salvation, and you are written into the story!

God’s richest blessing this Advent season,

Pastor John
