Greetings to all,
Have you ever wondered what is going to become of you? Take a look at the following scripture and see what your future looks like:
“Then he could present it [the Church] to himself as a glorious church, without any kind of stain or wrinkle—holy and without faults” (Ephesians 5:27).
As Christians we are a part of this glorious Church that the Lord is shaping. You might say, “Me? Glorious without any kind of stain or wrinkle? Holy without faults? That’s impossible!” But God is the God of the impossible.
So how do you approach life knowing that you have such a glorious future? Hebrews 12:14 tells us to “pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.”
You will notice that it is the “pursuit” of peace and holiness that give us an audience with the Lord. As we pursue Him, He provides what we need to find Him.
Ephesians 3:20 tells us, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” You can count on His power working in your life to bring you to the place of experiencing more than what you can imagine.
More of His peace, more of His goodness, more of His joy and in the end of this earthly life, the greatest eternal blessing of being in His presence continually.
YOU HAVE AN AWESOME FUTURE.
Love to all… pb
