All Saints Sunday Worship Celebration

All Saints Day: We remember those who finished their Jesus journey and are with God in heaven.

Remembering our Saints

Revelation 14:12-13, MSG | “Meanwhile, the saints stand passionately patient, keeping God’s commands, staying faithful to Jesus. I heard a voice out of Heaven, ‘Write this: Blessed are those who die in the Master from now on; how blessed to die that way!’ ‘Yes,’ says the Spirit, ‘and blessed rest from their hard, hard work. None of what they’ve done is wasted; God blesses them for it all in the end.’”

Remain passionately patient > stay in love with God.

Keep God’s Commands > Love all and share how you’ve experienced God at work.

Find the Blessings > death is just a transition from this life to the next.

Experience Rest > God invites us into a life of rest.

Nothing you do for God is wasted > God keeps track and will bless you accordingly.

Ultimately, this is about keeping people one with Christ despite all the forces trying to divide.
