The early disciples lived in light of the day when Jesus would return. His incarnation, His death and resurrection had inaugurated a new day. They knew Jesus would return as He promised. This is why in the midst of great opposition and persecution, the apostles urged the early church to rejoice. This is why grace and peace and joy were present realities for them. Jesus had come, Jesus was with them, they were in Him and He in them, and He was coming back again. Is this truth a reality for you today? Live in such a way that your life reveals His living presence. Live in light of His soon return.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The   Lord is near.— Philippians 4:4-5

Prayer: Jesus, set our focus on You. May we live today in light of Your return, reflecting our confidence in You as we interact with others. We pray in Your name, amen.
