Holy Week ~ Worth Dying For – The Next Advent – Closing Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
My mind runs a binary liturgical calendar. Most of the days are filled with thoughts of the Advent and life of Christ. I commit time each year to mourning the death and celebrating the resurrection. There is a reason for this imbalance.
I not only have great love for celebrating the first Advent of Christ but I am longing for the second Advent as well. The entire reason for both seasons is to get us to the latter event. It is the return of Jesus that will get all things back to good. It is this that we have been journeying toward since the expulsion from the garden.
I may not live to see this moment but I believe it will come. The resurrection is our security. It means nothing or it is everything. It is at this next beginning that all things wrong and unjust will be needed. That of which we dream and long for will be fulfilled.
Christ will return. He will end injustice. He right our course and give us a path that will always meet our needs. This life is for us to practice following so the great adventure in the undiscovered country will be less of a shock.
Jesus did ask a question about this. He questioned if he would find faith on the earth. I hope that he does. After all, he does not exist because we believe in him. He is here and always with us longing for us to walk with him.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
