THURSDAY, November 29

Ephesians 1:17-18 I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints.

Throughout this month, we’ve talked a lot about the lives of the saints. With All Saints’ Day, the commemoration of All Souls, and Veterans’ Day, it’s easy to see why November is often referred to as the month of Holy Souls. This month is not meant for lament or remorse but as a time of rejoicing for all those who have finished their course in faith and rest from their labors.

This month is a holy time for us to take courage in the faith these saints have made real and to learn from their examples. In less than a month, we will celebrate God being born among us so long ago. For now, let us remember the saints who make God real for us each day and offer thanks for what they have given us.

MOVING FORWARD: Compile your own list of saints to celebrate throughout the year, in addition to those commemorated by the church.
