The Lord is merciful and good. So let us fear the Lord in every season.
We have all become like one who is unclean,
and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment.
We all fade like a leaf,
and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
— Isaiah 64:6, ESV.
But the Lord is merciful, and sends rain in the Spring and in the Autumn. Because of Christ crucified and his mercies:
‘Let us fear the Lord our God,
who gives the rain in its season,
the autumn rain and the spring rain,
and keeps for us
the weeks appointed for the harvest.’
— Jeremiah 5:24, ESV.
Every day and every season brings us one ticktock closer to his final return. For those in Christ, his return will be beautiful.
