God’s Love LEtter
Be Alert! –WEEK 39:
This Sunday in our Gospel Reading from Luke 21:25-36, we talked about this Advent Season and our need to “Be Alert!” Advent means “a coming.’ For us, it really means two comings. We celebrate Jesus’ first coming as the Babe in Bethlehem, and we also celebrate His return when all things on this side of eternity are drawn to a close. Are we ready for the celebration of His coming? Are we ready for His return? This celebration of our Lord Jesus’ birth is even bigger than it was last year, because we are one year closer to His return. Not everyone is ready for that return. This week, let’s continue to reach out to them, encouraging them to be ready at all times for His return.
Look how far we’ve come in 2021. We’ve read the Old Testament Books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Ruth, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah, the New Testament Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1&2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1&2 Thessalonians, 1&2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1&2 Peter, 1&2&3 John, Jude and Revelation. This week we will finish the Books of Jeremiah, Lamentations, Nahum, and Habakkuk.
