Advent is a season of preparation for the return of Jesus to earth.  The thought of the Last Day causes fear for many.  We have the assurance that we have been enriched in every way, and lack nothing as we wait for Jesus to return.

“For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”

- 1 Corinthians 15:20-22

The Bible makes it clear that the wages of sin is death. We’re reminded of that truth in this verse from 1 Corinthians. Since Adam and Eve brought sin into the world, and passed that sin on to us, we will die. But because Jesus came and paid the price for our sins, we will also be made alive again through faith in Him. I’m talking here about the day of Christ’s return when our physical bodies will rise, restored and glorified to live forever. I’d also like to consider the impact of that fact on our lives right here and now.  For those who trust in Christ, aren’t we alive in Him right now? We don’t have to wait until the Last Day to be “alive in Christ”, we’re alive in Him today! The Holy Spirit given in Baptism gives us brand new life. We are living brand new lives in Christ right now. We’ll have to wait until Christ returns to get our new bodies, but new life is ours right now. Live that new life by loving your neighbor as yourself. Let the people you encounter every day see, and experience the new life that you have in Christ right now. We love because God first loved us.
