When you are a time-bound soul (something we share with every human who has ever lived/or ever will) it is tough to see yourself in a different state or realm. And yet this is a critical part of the God Story. While this earth is special and our lives have deep, personal meaning – it is not even able to be compared with what Paul calls “the glory that is to be revealed.” (Romans 8:18)
So, when Jesus says we will be with Him forever (Revelation 22:1-5) it is not to be taken of little consequence. If Paul’s quotes of Isaiah are true, then “things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard and which has not entered the heart of man, all God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
That’s what we are talking about today. Jesus and forever. You and me and forever. Either at the right hand of favor (sheep) or not (goats). Pretty weighty things, my friend. But then, life is not a game to God – it is truly a matter of life and death – and a never-ending story..
Enjoy…we think you will!
