A Glimpse Of Heaven


As I reflect on life, I realise I've had so many awesome times. What about you? Maybe you have had some great times with family and friends, with delicious food to enjoy, and perhaps even a sunny, blue sky overhead, a soft breeze blowing, and the world radiating God's glory in creation. It's at these times I'm reminded of the statement in the Apostles' Creed, "I believe in . . . the life everlasting".

 

It doesn't matter how exciting our times are, they fleet in comparison to the eternal joy we can look forward to with Christ. 

 

Scripture tells us, one day, we will stand before God's throne with Jesus, surrounded by countless sisters and brothers from around the world, completely freed from all fears, and filled with perfect peace and joy. There we will be fully doing what we were created for: "to glorify God and enjoy him forever".

 

Today and until that time when Christ will return, we will only have fleeting glimpses of our ultimate destiny. And those moments may come in the midst of struggles, challenges, and sometimes even utter defeat. But we are encouraged not to despair in the midst of hard times but to wait with hope for the day when Jesus will be all and all, when his kingdom will come in power and glory. 

 

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).

 

Let's Pray 

Yahweh, my greatest hope is being with you forever. Father, until that day, help me serve you wherever I am, with deeds of love. In Christ's name, Amen.
