This world can be corrupt. “What keeps me hanging on?” You may ask. It’s the hope of eternity. “The hope of glory” (1 Colossians 2:7) beats any day boring, sick, tired, sad, angry, or anxious day. Since “satan only comes to steal and kill and destroy” (John 10:10 ) life can be corrupt.
I wish we could keep our doors unlocked, then maybe we could our hearts wide open as well to others 24/7. But is that realistic? We have to protect ourselves at times, in my honest opinion.
But I found this hope in God’s Word:
Isaiah 51:6: Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
look at the earth beneath;
the heavens will vanish like smoke,
the earth will wear out like a garment
and its inhabitants die like flies.
But my salvation will last forever,
my righteousness will never fail.
Yes, this life as we know it will eventually end but the hope of glory will be forever! Amen!
God, prepare our hearts today as we seek You in this corrupt world of ours. Even with satan tempting and the consequences of people’s sins, You are good, God. Protect and love us, Father today. Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus to pay the ultimate price for our sins, so we could have a hope of a everlasting life filled with love and peace. Amen.
