Our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. Titus 2:13
None of us knows for sure what will happen tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year, but we do know the final outcome.
In heaven, sin will be no more. It will not be in you or around you. Never again will you grieve your Savior. You will be a joy to Him and He will be a joy to you forever. You will serve the Lord as you always wished you could. Never again will you be tired, weary, or discouraged. You will explore the joys of the new earth, freed at last from the curse. There will be no floods, raging fires, storms, earthquakes, or mudslides.
You will enjoy the blessings of a world where every person truly loves his sister and brother. There will be no violence, hatred, or fear. You will enjoy this life in a resurrection body in which the dark cloud of depression can never cast its shadow over you, the strong pull of temptation will never rise from within you, and the sharp anguish of pain will never torment you.
You will be at home and at peace in this body. We often groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies, but in this hope we were saved (Rom. 8:23-24).
Old regrets that have haunted you will be gone forever. All tears will be wiped from your eyes. There will be no death, no mourning, no crying, and no pain! You will see the King in His beauty. You will behold His face. And in His presence you will find fullness of joy.
Are you more focused on the uncertainty of your life in this world, or on the certainty of your life in the next?
