In regards to TV, there’s almost nothing more exciting than the 2-hour special finale of our favorite show. I miss Survivor so bad!!!
In preparation for the 1/16/11 sermon, I was reading the epistle scripture for that day from The Message. It says, “Just think???you don’t need a thing, you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale.” (the beginning of 1Corinthians 1.7-9)
I love that image, of a Finale. I picture it as God’s people running around all excited and prepping for a Red Carpet Premier. The film has been shot, put together, and made ready for viewing. We’ve worked hard to enlist the right people to set-up, advertise, promote and invite as many as possible to the star-studded event. Then, the limo pulls up and “boom” God is here and he looks SHARP! the rest of the night is pictures, interviews and celebrations. It’s a night to remember.
Makes me kinda excited!
As for the commentary on the gifts we have, well, that’s for January 16. I hope you are blessed as you live and breathe and move today. Remember to honor God tomorrow and join the worshiping community somewhere. Prayers from me to you from Kentucky today.
