Well its November 1, All Saint’s Days, or All Hallows Day- the actual reason we have Halloween or All Hallows Even. I am not much of a Saints guy – neither the New Orleans variety or the granting sainthood variety, as I think we all, everyone of us, have fallen short of the glory of God. However, we all have an opportunity to become saints or followers of Him.
8-9You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him—with laughter and singing. Because you kept on believing, you’ll get what you’re looking forward to: total salvation. (1 Peter 1:8, The Message)
Yep, keep on believing and your will get total salvation. Salvation for all who believe, so that all of those who believe can become saints! Now that’s an All Saint’s Day I can celebrate!
14-16“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16, The Message)
Enjoy All Saints Day by being a light to all those around you!
