Those he gathered in from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south: Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind. Psalm 107:3,8
I tell you, many will come from the east and west and will eat with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 8:11
Jesus calls us one and all to be his and to look forward to being with him in his kingdom. All witnesses who seek a relationship with God will be accepted to celebrate with the family of God in the kingdom of heaven. How glorious is this assurance! We thank God throughout our walk on earth as we marvel at such a gift God has given to us.
God is beside each one of us to hear our every trial and to comfort us in every need. Life is not always easy, but we know he hears our every call and answers with love beyond measure.
Dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
To paraphrase a favorite hymn: When Christ comes with shout of acclamation and and takes us home, we thank you for the joy which will fill our hearts. Help us to always proclaim, "My God, how great thou art!" Your blessings fill our souls, our Savior God to thee! Thank you for your blessings to each one of us who believe. Help us to share with others what you have done for us, your children. Amen.
