Friday 25 November
Jesus’ words at the end of this Sunday’s Gospel are a call to vigilance. Why? The Sunday prayer tells it plainly: “when he shall come …. we may rise to the life immortal.”
Once more the theme of preparation for a superb hope is placed before us.
Vigilance is this awareness of Jesus – His birth, life, ministry, death and resurrection – and placing that awareness into a state where it effects our actions and relationships.
Make today one in which something you know of God helps you react or interact. Vigilance of God meaning we are vigilant for God in other.
Lord Jesus, make my vigilance for the freedom you offer spill over into the things that I do and for the people I meet today. May my awareness of your grace lead me in my present vigilance for and with you. Amen
