Today's Good News


7/22 Colossians 1:3-5
We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we have heard that you trust in Christ Jesus and that you love all of God’s people. You do this because you are looking forward to the joys of heaven — as you have been ever since you first heard the truth of the Good News.
We are here and now creatures. This world is not our home and yet it is hard for us to imagine what the next world will be like. Paul gives us some indication of the afterlife as he encourages us to pray for one another. Heaven will be a place where we will be close to the Lord and one another. Community is difficult to accomplish and hard to maintain. In heaven, community will be the norm. No tears there nor will their be any loneliness. Pray for others. This is an activity of the saved.
