Sometimes we forget where we are headed. Sometimes we settle for the second-best that this world offers,become content with with it, and forget to seek God. Other times we are not fascinated with the things of this current, short lived, world and do not have an eternal focus. Here is Jesus’ promise to His followers:
“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” John 14:1-4
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, 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.” – Revelation 21:1-4
Sometimes we feel so downtrodden that we forget to look up to our magnificent Savior, Father, and Holy Spirit. What would be more awesome than living side by side with God without the stain of sin?
