Has your mother ever said those four words? Mine would as she consoled me with reminders of inevitable change. The absolute was fine in an undesirable situation but heartbreaking when not.
But one day the rollercoaster will end. All accounts will be settled. Nothing will need to change. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ you will be complete; transformed into the full likeness of Him. We, too, will be at the right hand of God. Every earthly situation, good and challenging, will be laid at the Throne of Grace…all for the glory of God.
Why accept Jesus? Because it was He who defeated death once and for all. Only He is worthy to break through the barrier of sin in order to give us access to God. Without accepting Jesus you will experience the ‘second’ death. It is never God’s desire for anyone to spend eternity in hell, but He is a gentleman who has given us the choice to choose life or death. What will you choose today?
“What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole.
I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.” 1 Peter 1:3-7 The Message
If you have chosen life then realize it doesn’t start when we go to Heaven…it starts now! You have everything to live for now!. Rejoice in all things for there will be a Day when we will celebrate our genuine faith. Keep on keeping on because this too shall pass.
