Hold Fast to Good While Waiting for Redemption

“John prepared the way for Jesus Christ (John 1:6-8, 19-28). God has done great things for us (Psalm 126); he brings good tidings to the afflicted and loves justice (Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11). Rejoice always, pray constantly, hold fast to that which is good (1 Thessalonians 5:16-24).” – Thomas Oden, Ancient Christian Devotional

Comfort My People and Prepare the Way of the Lord 

God’s promise of redemption is rooted in his steadfast love and faithfulness (Psalm 85:1-3, 8-13). We quickly fade like flowers, but the eternal Word of God will save and renew his people (Isaiah 40:1-11). Prepare for his coming through repentance and expectation (Mark 1:1-8), for one day Christ will come again to renew creation and establish his righteous rule (2 Peter 3:8-15a).

Our Faithful Savior Will Come Again

“Our awe-inspiring heavenly Father knows our sins (Isaiah 64:1-9). Restore us, O Lord God, that we may be saved (Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19). God is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:3-9). We must keep an ever-present watch, for Jesus is coming again (Mark 13:24-37).”
