Reflections: Keeping our eyes fixed on the final resurrection is an important part of what it means to follow Christ in 2020. Christians are already raised with Christ, seated in the heavenly realms – we are eagerly awaiting the return of Christ who will bring us finally into the land of the living. All we need to do is wait for God to take us there. Do everything you can to keep your eyes fixed on that spiritual reality – it won’t make hard things easier, but it will give a little perspective.
Question: Do you long for the return of Christ?
Prayers: God, please bring us into the land of the living soon. Please help us be ready for Jesus’ return, and faithful while we wait. Amen.
