Today Reminder – 27 July 2016

A reminder for today
For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. (2 Corinthians 5:1)

How are you today, my friend? I do hope that you are well and that God’s strength will comfort you on your current journey. It is amazing to know that all we see now is purely temporary and that our current bodies will be renewed to heavenly bodies when we leave this earth. This is a time to which we must look forward too for it is in this time that all our burdens will be lightened and our way of life will completely change.

It is why we fight this fight and why we do not give up, because in the end we will live in His glorious heaven and we will be in eternal bodies that will never grow old or get sick. We will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. For we live by believing and not by seeing. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him. For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. (verse 6-10)

So today I want you to find time and spend it with the Lord. Seek Him with a longing heart and walk confident. I want you to live by believing in Jesus and in His grace and love over our lives. I want you to be ready for the day of the Lord’s return is getting closer and I do not want you to be unprepared for His return. Stand firm in your faith and be filled by the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Lord, today we pray that you will renew our confidence and we long for your return. Let your kingdom come and let your name be glorified. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
