Advent 1- Stars that shine brightly – Thursday 30th November 2017 – Revelation 14:6-13


   advent star smallHere is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the faith of* Jesus. v12

Advent is a time where we marvel at the bright white light that reminds us of God’s pure love for us, in the midst of our chaotic world. As we read this passage, chapter 14 of Revelation is where we glimpse Eternity where the Messiah dwells. However, there is a call to endure the difficulties that face us daily, and the secret of endurance is trust and obedience. Trusting that God will always be with us and will give us the patience to endure the small things we face daily and obedience to the will of the Creative Spirit.

Lord, who is the mystery, majesty, and the Messiah; who dwells in the stars and in hearts of all people. Bless us as we wait for patience. Amen
