Gospel Thread - OT:

No direct gospel reference in today's OT reading.

Gospel Thread - NT:

"Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad."

John 8:56 (NIV)

Abraham knew that God's Promise to him would be completed and perfected in a coming Messiah. That Abraham "saw" Jesus' day means, in part, that Abraham had faith in that Messiah - evidenced by his gladness. Indeed, Jesus is that Messiah - the fulfillment of God's Promise and the perfection of His Law; the means of our redemption and the source of our salvation.

Gospel Thread - Psalms/Proverbs:

Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.

Psalm 112:4 (NIV)
