Philippians 1:21 - To live is Christ and to die is gain.
I shared this verse from the Bible on Wednesday night to remind those who were present about the apostle Paul’s outlook on life. That as long as God gives us breath, life ought to be about Christ and serving him right up until the day they the Lord takes us home. The great hope we have as Christians is that those who trust in what Jesus did for us in living, dying and rising to new life, then death is gain. People who trust in Jesus, go to Jesus when they die.
Are you ready for spending forever with Jesus?
Are you ready now for Jesus to return?
This weekend, we are looking at the Parable of the Ten Virgins. This is an odd parable, perhaps the meaning isn’t crystal clear. But by the end, we’ll see the importance of being ready for when Jesus returns whenever that will be.
Thank you so much for the warm welcome that we as a family have received in our first week in the parish. I have met many people and will work hard to learn your names quickly. We have received many kind gifts and feel very welcome into this community. We look forward to meeting you, working out the best way to have a meal with many of you and together reminding each other of the hope that we have in Jesus.
