“I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.” (1 Corinthians 15:50, ESV)
Sometime after creation, our lives were stolen. Sin entered the world and corrupted God’s gift to humanity. Sin, disease, and death became normal. But…
God gave a solution: Jesus’ death and resurrection! And because of His sacrifice, we now are no longer bound to the terminal illness infecting all life.
Sometimes we forget…without heaven, we are hopeless. If this life is the only time frame we have to possess all that we are to receive, then this earth ride is pretty meaningless. But, if one day we will be translated into the fullness of who we were designed to be, then everything here is a call to believe for something more—an opportunity declare that what God has planned is actually good. The journey has no end; increase and growth is eternal. Hallelujah!
Today, let’s renew our faith in the promise. This life is not it; we were made for more. Let’s live as if we believe what we say is true.
