Can you imagine never suffering loss again? Heaven is such a place. Never again will we suffer the loss of loved ones, of finances, our health, a home, job, or a spouse through death or divorce, or friendship. There are two things we will lose, though; the ability to sin and our entanglements with this world, those things that tie us down and wear us out. Amen!
In light of Christ’s glory this world will become an instant, distant memory.
Once the treasures Christ has for us are unveiled we’ll welcome earthly loss. If only we would loosen our grip on earthen treasures now, those things that break, fad, tarnish, rot or burn. Oh, what a glorious hope we have in Christ Jesus. Doesn’t it give you thrill chills?
Being in heaven with Jesus will outshine the beauty of this world in infinite ways. What we enjoy here is a foreshadowing of what awaits us in glory, most importantly, Christ himself. Although we enjoy His presence now, I can only imagine the wonder of seeing Him face to face. I can hardly wait. How about you?
ll Corinthians 4:18 ~ “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
Hebrews 11:13-14 ~ "All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own."
Lord, inspire in us today an awakening of our spirits that we might see you high and lifted up; that we would perceive your fame. Strengthen our faith as we live and move in you. And fill us with your Holy Spirit that we reflect your glory; that others will be drawn to you. In Jesus name, Amen
