Inspired to Persevere

Description

God's love motivates us to live for Him.

2 Peter 3:14

"Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless;" NKJV

Some say, "It's too far-fetched. It's just wishful thinking." God says it is reality. What am I talking about? I'm talking about a Christian's future home, Heaven. This place of perfect beauty where the streets are gold and the river of living water flows. No more tears, no more pain and no more evil. This is the place we look forward to.

Revelation 21:2: "Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. " NKJV

So why did God give us such a vivid picture of Heaven? Just like a loving father desires to give good gifts to His kids, God wanted us to catch a glimpse of the home He has prepared for us. This picture of Heaven was given to inspire us to persevere through this life. God wanted to, once again, show His love to us. He showed His love through the death and resurrection of Jesus, and now He shows us that His love for us extends into eternity in a place where God dwells with man. Now, with that inspirational look into Heaven, we are able to walk in joyful obedience to God. Loving God, loving others and changing this world. Are you ready? Take a long look at our future home and then let that inspire you to tell others how they can get there.

Life Lesson: God's love motivates us to live for Him.

Dear God, 
Thank You for Your amazing love. Not only did You give us eternal life through faith in Jesus, but we also have the hope of Heaven where there is great beauty and no pain. God, fill my thoughts with Your heavenly home so that I will be inspired to persevere through this world, sharing Your love with others and pointing them to a new home in Heaven. In Jesus' name, Amen.
