Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Ezekiel 3:16-6:14 Hebrews 4:1-16 Proverbs 26:27

“The Saints of God – Shining in Christ Forever”

“And those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
[Isaiah 35:10]

It is stated in Luke 2:9 that when the angel came to the shepherds, the brightness of the Lord shone round about them. Such was also Christ’s countenance on Mt. Tabor: “and he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light.” [Matt. 17:2]. Such will be our countenance when on the Last Day we are raised for the glory which Christ has gained for us … our faces will shine like the sun at noon; no longer will there be those familiar wrinkles, the contracted brow, and the watery eyes. But as it is stated in Revelation 21:4: “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And so, let us hold fast to this hope, and let us live in the fear of God until, set free from this life fraught with misery, we shall live that angelic and eternal life. Amen.
