Far Beyond

Description

If you are finding yourself overwhelmed by what the world has that you don’t, and if you ever become dissatisfied with your appeared lack of worldly treasures, remind yourself whose child you are.

"Far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come." Ephesians 1:21, NIV

Nothing is better than what the Christian gains from their relationship with God, through Christ!

I used to think I wanted to be President of the United States! When I was 18, I thought that I would be the nation’s youngest president at the age of 36. Well, needless to say, that didn’t happen. What if it had? What a title! President of the most powerful nation in the world would have certainly been impressive!

I have a friend who is worth millions! He has worked hard, been blessed greatly, and was often “in the right place at the right time.” It would be easy to be envious of him and his wealth. I try, however, to appreciate what God has done and is doing through my friend.

Often we look at people or positions in life and think to ourselves: “if only I could be where they are” or “if only I had that, everything would be okay”. For the Christian, Paul reminds us that we have what is far better than anything this world can offer. We have a relationship with the Creator of the heavens and the earth. We have an inheritance that we share with the Son of God. We have a promised eternity that outshines all the wealth of the world! We have Jesus!

If you are finding yourself overwhelmed by what the world has that you don’t, and if you ever become dissatisfied with your appeared lack of worldly treasures, remind yourself whose child you are. You are heir to the Throne of Grace. Your Daddy owns the cattle on a thousand hills. You can brag that your family heritage includes Jesus!

What you have is far beyond what this world can ever offer!
