Christ is Depending on You

Tuesday of First Week of Advent

Evening Prayer and Benediction

1 Cor 1: 4-9

Deacon Larry Brockman

Christ is depending on us.  Yes, He’s depending on you and me,  Just like Christ depended on Paul to spread the faith to the Gentiles.    We are the faithful ones- those of us who are so dedicated to the Eucharist  that we attend Tuesday Benediction.  Because we have been blessed with special gifts, gifts that help us with the knowledge of our Faith that Paul is talking about.   

At this time of the year, we are awaiting the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Not just the coming of the Christ child; but also the coming of Christ the King.  It can happen at any time for any of us- in a car accident; in our sleep; or in many other ways.  And as we’ve been hearing, we must be prepared for it- all of us.   

Many of our friends, relatives, and coworkers are not as ready as we are.  And Christ is depending on us to help them.  When we live according to our strong Faith, then we will be strengthened until the end.  And we will be blameless on the Day of the Lord.   

That is what the rest of mankind needs to know.  You can spread that confidence through your witness.  We all need to go forth from here resolved to share our Faith.   

Christmas is not about cards and cookies and holiday celebrations and all the rest of the hype, Christmas is about being ready for the coming of the Lord at all times.

So, let us all go share what it means to be ready for fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
