PCT and The Great Day

Well, another Christmas has come and gone and many are faced with the symptoms of Post Christmas Trauma (PCT); weariness, a strange lack of money, reluctance to return to work or school, an irrational clinging to Christmas music, and an absolute terror of shopping malls, to name a few...

Anywho, while we exit this time of remembrance, it can sometimes be easy to leave Jesus in the manger.  But that was not His destiny, and we would err in leaving Him there.
Our Lord Jesus Christ came to once and for all pay the ultimate price for our sins; He came teaching and preaching salvation for the lost (i.e. all of us), healing the sick and infirm, raising the dead, and He died to set right the wrong set in motion by that One Act of Rebellion in the Beginning.  And yet, that wasn't the end, for He rose to give us hope.  Hope for the end of all pain and suffering!
Isn't God great?

But even now, there is more.

He is coming back again to reign as King!  That is the beautiful focus of the song I want to share with you today.
Listen to The Great Day, sung by Michael W. Smith and Darlene Zchech, and worship God for His great mercy, grace, and love!


I have heard it said that mercy is not getting what one deserves, while grace is receiving what one does not deserve.  Think on that for a moment.

"But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun
will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the 
stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens
will be shaken... they will see the Son of Man coming on the
clouds of the sky with power and glory.  And He will send
forth His angels with a great trumpet and they
will gather together His elect from the four winds, from
one end of the sky to the other."
Matthew 24:29

Blessings,
Julia
