And He will reign forever. John reported this in Revelation:
Today will be a great opportunity to witness to others. In our neck of the woods, many people say that today is a sad day in history, one that will bring forth some changes that will cause our nation to slide into further moral decline and more of an economic slump. Point them to the One who reigns on the true throne and can bring peace into their hearts during such a time as this. Help them to know that in the midst of uncertainty, there is One who has all the Earth under His control - our God.
"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you." ~ Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)
One thing we can be sure of. No matter what happens here on earth, this world is not our home. No matter what country you are a citizen of here in the natural, if you are saved by the precious grace God has given through His Son Jesus Christ, you are a citizen of Heaven.
"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body." ~ Philippians 3:20-21 (NIV)
Are you content here on the earth? It's one thing to be content with the loved ones in your life, but do you long for the promise above? Are you eagerly awaiting a Savior who will bring us home to Heaven? I am. This world proves more and more each day that it is not my home, but I know I have nothing to fear. I know that one day the One who rules my life will call me home, whether by natural death, accident, illness or Rapture, and I will be with Him forever. Do you have that assurance? If not, please email me at email@example.com and I'll be happy to talk with you more about it. If so, I can't wait to meet you, either here on earth or when we are called Home.
