TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
1 See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. 1 John 3:1-3
We are made saints by God’s calling of us, not because we gave accomplished great things. We are blessed by the witness of God’s people of all times – prophets, priests, servants, apostle’s, and so many more.
- Who, in the history of the faith, and your own life experience, has helped to form your faith and reassure you of God’s promise?
- Who are you a witness to?
PRAY: O God, the generations rise and pass away before you. We rejoice in the company of your saints. We remember all who have lived in faith, all who have peacefully died, and especially those most dear to us who rest in you. Give us in time our portion with those who have trusted in you and have striven to do your holy will. In Jesus name. Amen
BLESS: May God strengthen your faith, and your witness. Amen.
