SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK - ISAIAH 25:6-9

In this beautiful passage, Isaiah paints a portrait of the Kingdom of God. It is a very broad picture...all the nations shall sit at table together. It will be a time of feasting and celebration with good food and the best wine. The celebration is sparked by God's dramatic action to swallow up death forever. God will then wipe away all tears. In addition he will ensure that nothing which causes tears shall ever again exist.

Isaiah concludes with a prayer for all of us in all times and places: "Let us be glad and rejoice in His salvation".

Jesus paid the price for this salvation on the cross. God has assured us all that some day it will be through Jesus' resurrection.


QUOTATION OF THE WEEK

"Let us do something beautiful for God."

Mother Teresa
