The Seventh Day of Christmas: December 31
As we work together with him, we urge you also not to accept the grace of God in vain. For he says, "At an acceptable time I have listened to you, and on a day of salvation I have helped you." See, now is the acceptable time; see, now is the day of salvation!
- 2 Corinthians 5:16 - 6:2
It’s the last day of the year. I love to think of life as “working together with God.” We’re in the middle of a big project, and another year of our time has come and gone. It’s always a struggle … but often, it is also a delight. Have faith that the delight will be worth the struggle.
“All Delighted People.” I think it’s about taking stock and choosing to continue the struggle of loving and working with God. (I also enjoy the way he pays homage to Simon & Garfunkel.) Note that the lyrics are available if you expand the text segment below the screen.
