Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age…
Jesus has come for our rescue! Why? Because he knows the times in which we live aren’t easy. He knows that the world in which we live is caught up in wickedness. He knows our world is broken and in decay. These, however, are not the only realities we face in our world. Jesus gave us overwhelming victory over sin, death, demons, and hell through his cross (Colossians 2:12-15). Now, we can greet each day and each other with grace and face the future with confident peace, knowing our Lord is near and our rescue is assured (Philippians 4:5; James 5:8; Luke 21:28).
Father, please help me distinguish between good and evil as I seek to live for you daily. Make evil repulsive to me despite the many ways that Satan tries to make it look attractive and seductive. Thank you, Jesus, for coming to my rescue when I was a sinner and unable to save myself. Thank you for sharing your grace and giving me peace. Thank you for returning to take me with you to share in your glory. Through the intercession of the blessed Holy Spirit, I offer my thanks and praise. Amen.
