“We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18
Perhaps you have had a few extraordinary times with loved ones, with delightful food to appreciate, and maybe even a bright, blue sky above, a delicate breeze blowing, and the world emanating God’s magnificence in creation. As children of God, our passing moment of joy in this life fails to measure up to the eternal satisfaction we can anticipate in Christ. However, this we know with assurance: at some point, we will stand before God’s throne with Jesus, surrounded by His glory, totally free from all feelings of fear, and filled up with amazing peace and joy (Revelation 7). In Heaven, we will be doing what we were created for: “to worship God and appreciate him until the end of time”. Moments may come in the midst of struggles, challenges, and sometimes even great defeat. However, we are urged not to surrender in that frame of mind of difficult situations; however, to hang tight with trust for the day when Jesus will be all and all, when his realm will come in power and greatness. It is never too late to turn to Jesus, that we may have eternal joy.
Heavenly Father, my family and I look forward to being with you till eternity. Before the end, help us serve you in truth, in spirit and in love. Amen
