And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV
God loves us so much that He gives us an inheritance and a covenant. When God blessed Abraham, He asked Abraham to move, and to go to the land that He promised.
I received the keys to my new house on 4/9/21, and I couldn’t help but marvel at how much the Lord has given me. I wanted a safe place to live, and He delivered more than I could ask or think.
We have hope that we will be with our Heavenly Father forever, and the relationship continues no matter where we are.
We have faith that Jesus saves us, heals us, and blesses us. We are incredibly fortunate to have a loving God who provides for all our needs. Amen.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled that does not fade away, reserved in Heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. – 1 Peter 1:3-5 NKJV
Each one of us is a trust fund baby: we are heirs to an eternal inheritance through Jesus Christ. We are rich beyond measure!
Regardless of the trials we face in life, our Lord shows us mercy when we come to Him in prayer and trust Him.
It is our hope that we will see our loved ones who have passed away, not just in our dreams, but in Heaven on that glorious day. Salvation through faith is powerful. Amen.
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:12-13 NKJV
When babies look in the mirror, they don’t recognize themselves until they reach a certain level of maturity.
When we see Jesus again, we will know His face immediately. What a revelation!
When we have faith, we believe in Jesus without seeing Him, although evidence of His works can be seen every day.
When we have hope, we trust that Jesus will come again, and we will see our loved ones who have passed away.
When we love God, all the things of Earth grow dim, because we can focus on Him through everything. Amen.
My heart says of you, “Seek His face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek. – Psalm 27:8 NIV
When we seek Jesus, the things of Earth will grow strangely dim.
What a glorious day it will be when we finally see the radiant face of Jesus!
Instead of a sad end to one way of life, seeing His face at the Second Coming will be a joyful occasion with someone we love and have waited for.
I don’t know when that day will come, and the Bible says that nobody knows the day nor the hour of Jesus’s Second Coming, but by having a daily relationship with our Savior, we don’t have to fear that day. It will be a good day.
Seeking His face on an ordinary day is like a meditative practice. Many things can distract us, but we can gently turn our attention back to Him. We can never go wrong when we turn our eyes upon Jesus. Amen.
