Examin Sunday 20 Dec 2015

God established a time for his promises and a time for their fulfilment. The time for promises was the time of the prophets, until John the Baptist; from John until the end is the time of fulfilment.
From a discourse on the psalms by St Augustine

We live in the time of fulfilment, the time after the coming of Christ when we must prepare ourselves for when he comes again. God helps prepare us through the sacraments, through his Holy Word, and through his Church. We play our part by living in obedience to his will. Consider you life. Do reject what obedience may gain you for empty promises and false pleasures that will pass?
