Faith needs to be constantly replenished.
Faith alone saves, but faith is never alone. It always abounds in good works.
This is not how life was supposed to be so God came to fix it all by His cross.
The church is waiting for the Bridegroom. You are the church. So you are waiting for the Bridegroom to come. You wait by receiving God's forgiveness in Word and Sacrament…
Time is a gift from God. Time swiftly brings us closer to Christ's return and our salvation.
In the Word and Sacraments, Christ fills up your lamps with oil so you are ready for the Day of His coming.
What should you be doing as you wait for Christ's return?
These events in the world and in the visible church should not surprise us. Christ told us they would happen. So be prepared.
Keep the fire of the Spirit.
All that we are is because of Christ. All that we receive is because of Christ.
