Upon Their Lives, watercolour in sketchbook
Day 36 (Wednesday)
Our ancestors in faith
bequeath to us experiences of their faithful living;
upon their lives our lives are built.
Our living of the gospel makes us a part of this communion of saints,
experiencing the fulfillment of God’s reign
even as we actively anticipate a new heaven and a new earth.
Upon whose lives is your life built upon?
Who will be building upon your life?
How do you live the gospel?
How do you experience the fulfillment of God’s reign?
