Wednesday 23 November
You will often hear the saying that people “have never had it so good”. The line was used in the 1950’s by the Prime Minister of the day, Harold Macmillan. The whole context was one of optimism, what we can achieve from this point in time.
One of last Sunday’s readings, Colossians 1.13, told us we belong to the new age of Christ and we are already citizens of heaven. Our lives should befit this calling because in salvation terms we “have never had it so good”.
From Christ the King last Sunday we move to Advent and simultaneously await Jesus birth and return.
Are you already a part of the new age and how does that inform our preparation?
Looking for the blessings of today, the ever present prospect and reality of ’God with Us’ , may we be found ready and expectant of the Kingdom now and in the whole of this Advent season. Amen
