On the Lord's Day

"This life therefore
is not righteousness
but growth in righteousness;
not health but healing,
not being but becoming,
not rest but exercise.
We are not what we shall be
but we are growing toward it;
the process is not yet finished
but it is going on;
this is not the end
but it is the road.
All does not yet gleam in glory
but all is being purified."
~ Martin Luther ~

Six days we toil, pray, and work in Christ, by grace towards the coming of the Kingdom.  But, on this day, we rest, we worship together as His bride the church in small and large enclaves all around this huge world to give Him thanks for who He is, for His rescue of us, and as a bit of a reminder that heaven is coming.
Do not be afraid, I bring good news of great joy that will be for all people. -Luke 2:10
