September 25, 2013 – You’ve Got Mail: Letters from God!
// September 25th, 2013 // The Joy of Discovery
Have you ever received a letter from God? We may be familiar with his many encouragements and teachings found in Sacred Scripture. But, what about a personal letter from God, one addressed to you? In the Book of Revelations, in this great book that we are often tempted to avoid, we find seven letters from Our Lord. These are the letters written to the seven churches in Asia. However, they are also letters to each of us. We look for evidence in the Sacred Texts about who is writing these letters, and what their structure reveals to us. Did you know, for example, that they each include affirmation for the good work we are undertaking? Are you aware, also, that in each letter God makes us a beautiful promise? Only with these graces does God then, with the gentle hand of a Loving Father, exhort us to be all that we can be!
