Epistle Reflection

So we press eagerly towards the goal
in order to win the prize,
the call that comes from God
to life with Christ in glory.

New Testament Reading - Praying for each other.

thumb

Whenever we pray for you we always begin by giving thanks to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 for we have heard how much you trust the Lord, and how much you love his people. 5 And you are looking forward to the joys of heaven, and have been ever since the Gospel first was preached to you. 6 The same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world and changing lives everywhere, just as it changed yours that very first day you heard it and understood about God's great kindness to sinners.
