Psalm 47, Zechariah 14.1-21, Titus 2.7-3.15 - Lectionary for 2/3/11

Today's readings are Psalm 47, Zechariah 14.1-21, and Titus 2.7-3.15.

The life of the Christian is a life of expectancy. In Titus 2.13 we see our hope is in the coming of our Lord, who will execute justice on those who reject him and will gather his people together into permanent healing and blessing. This is the message Paul tells Titus to emphasize. "Let no one disregard you"( 2.15, ESV). 

It is very easy for us to fail in our insistence on the truth. But this is destructive to our world. It does not love our neighbors when we leave them to blithely ignore God's Law and Gospel. May the Lord remind us constantly that we are working with life and death issues.
