Faithful and True

Do you realize that there is way more to this life than living, working, going home, doing the dishes, driving to and fro, errand running, grocery shopping, hanging out with friends, getting heartbroken, getting car insurance, watching tv, eating popcorn, going out to eat, piling up money, attaining career goals, and cutting the grass?

There’s just more. Immensely more.

Before I came to Christ, I honestly didn’t know why I was here. Everything was a big mystery with no solid answers, such as we evolved from apes and we have no meaning. I would honestly wonder why I’m even here. What’s the point? What’s the point of doing anything – like reaching goals, doing the dishes, and planting a garden, if we’re just going to die and cease to exist. There seemed to be no purpose behind anything. We’re just here, life formed out of nothing, with no ultimate purpose, and then we die, leaving it all behind, having no clue why we even existed.

But there are more answers than we think.

This feeling in our lives of no purpose or true meaning is a sad and dreadful place to be. I was there. Until God came into my life, then it all changed…and it changed more than I could have ever imagined. I received purpose. Meaning. Love. Salvation. Fullness. Security. And I received an inheritance of Heaven and God Himself.

There is no bliss greater than a soul lovingly in God’s tender hands.

We don’t have to put all our hope in this world, when there is a greater hope, a greater promise for the world to come. One that will never end. And one that is better than this.

His promises are real and secure. He is a faithful God who is true in all he does.

{2 Peter 1:4}
“For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.”

{Revelation 19:1}
“I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God;”

{Revelation 21:4-7}
“and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be their God and they will be My children.”

If you love God, just know that your life has more meaning than you could ever comprehend. You belong to the Creator, and you’re going somewhere beyond our wildest imaginations. We are free to let go of this world and chase after Him.
