For all the Saints, we remember their faithfulness, we remember how they have witnessed to us and with us, and we are encouraged to live our lives in faithfulness.
Worldly ways call us to judge, to despise, even to hate; God’s ways call us to love, to welcome and embrace, to love and forgive. When we look at the witness of those who have gone before us, we remember their love and faithfulness, and are called to live into the same way, the same vision from God for life now, and eternity.
The writer of Ephesians declares that through Christ, the faithful have obtained an inheritance-Jews and Gentiles together. Christ is head of all things, and all things are under his feet. God raised Christ from the dead, and that power is at work in Christ. For the saints-the faithful-there is a glorious inheritance.
Jesus speaks the beatitudes and the woes, calling all who listen to love their enemies.
Sovereign of Creation, all that we have comes from you.
When we turned away, you called us home and patiently waited our return. We gather in your presence, surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, people from every tribe and nation, every kindred and tongue, to lift our voices in praise, to be transformed into your saints,
to be sent out to gather others to share the eternal banquet.
Hear the praise we offer, work in us and through us.
You alone are holy,
you alone are the Most High, you alone are worthy of our praise.
Glory to you O God, and to the Lamb that was slain and to the Spirit that unites us all, today and ever more. Amen.
