Keep Your Eye On The Goal!
We know we will be changed so we do not lose sight of the goal. This life is
temporary; it's the next life that is eternal. So what should our eyes be
focussed on as we go through life? What is it that should be our glorious
obsession; the thing which makes getting up a pleasure and pushes depression
2 Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if the tent that is
our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with
hands, eternal in the heavens.
God's plan for us is to give us everlasting life and to enjoy this we will be
given a new body (tent) not as this earthly one but spiritual and built for
that life with Him.
We could come under trial in this life and even
lose our lives through persecution but we have a guaranteed future that others
who rely on their own salvation works cannot share in.
We walk by faith
in God and His Son Jesus Christ, for the just shall live by faith.
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it
is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and
also to the Greek. 17 For in it is the righteousness of God revealed
from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
For Greek read nations. God's blessings are available to all who choose freely to
follow Him and live by the example of Jesus and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
He's good to all.
Best wishes for Grace and the Peace of Jesus.
