First Sunday of Advent (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
God knows our struggles and challenges well, and he gives grace and help wherever we need it. But there is one excuse that God will not accept from us that is trying to pass off personal responsibility for our lives and for our decisions to someone else. God's judges each of us independently according to how we have responded to his gracious invitation to live for his kingdom. No one can discharge his or her duty by proxy or association. The good news is that God is merciful and he gives grace to turn away from sin and he gives us the help we need to follow in his way of holiness. God's judgment is good news for those who are ready to meet the Lord when he returns in his glory. He gives us fresh hope each day so we can keep our eyes on the eternal prize waiting for us. In every age God issues his warning as a sign of mercy to those who will pay attention to it. The people in Noah's time ignored the Lord's warning of judgment. They missed the boat, literally! Those whose hope is firmly anchored in heaven will not be disappointed when God's judgment comes. They rejoice even now that they will see the Lord in his glory! We can live and work with godly Christians, but no matter how close they may be to God, they cannot win a place for us in heaven. God offers each of us a personal invitation to accept his kingdom or to refuse it. There is really no middle ground. We are either for God or against him, for his kingdom of righteousness or against it. The choice is ours. And God's grace is available to those who are willing to believe in God and obey his word.
Today's Scripture: Matthew 24:37-44 (December 1, 2013)
Prayer ...
Glorious Father, thank you for putting us where we are. We know we are here to do your work and carry on Jesus' ministry. Help us seize the opportunities you give us today to bless others in the name of Jesus. In that mighty name of my Lord we pray. Amen.
