Thought of the Day May 14, 2021 Until he comes, remain in him.

By 11:55 AM

This union with the Lord is repeated in the other inspired writings of St. John. We read in 1 John 2:28, "And now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears we may have confidence and not shrink from Him in shame at His coming." The beloved disciple emphasizes the importance of remaining "in Christ" until the very end of ones life; showing that perseverance is seen from an eschatological (end time) viewpoint. If we live in Christ motivated by love and if we die in Christ, responding in love to him, then we will, by his grace and mercy, be with God eternally in love. Remaining in his love in each present moment means to be found in him and in his love in that present moment, which is death and the door to eternity. Blessed be God!
