Glimpses of Eternity

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. (Matthew 5:6)

This is one of my favorite verses that Jesus spoke in the sermon on the mount.  It speaks to the truth inside all of us.  We all hunger for something beyond what anything in this world can satisfy.  At times we might try to satisfy that hunger with temporary things or people, but eventually we come to realize that God is the only One who can fully satisfy the hunger within us.

He sent His Son to be the bread of life, to renew a relationship with us.  He is the living water, ready to quench the thirst of our souls on a daily basis.  It’s time to go back to the fountain and draw from the source of living water.  On this earth, we will have moments of hunger and thirst, which can only be satisfied in God alone through His Word.

Conduit of Grace

And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. (2 Corinthians 9:8, AMP)

‘I have made it back from my vacation in Minnesota.  It was so good to see my family and now it’s time for me to get back to writing.  Unfortunately, I did not have the time I needed to create new devotionals for you this week.  But I am working on a series that I think you will enjoy.  I’m looking forward to starting this new series with you next Monday.

The series will be on the Greatest Commandment that has been given to us.

Jesus replied, ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it:  ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “

Take Up Your Cross

Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.’ (Matthew 16:24-25)

Overcome the World

Who is it that overcomes the world?  Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. (1 John 5:5)

I want in on this!  I want to be an overcomer!  I want to overcome this world and it’s challenges.  Are you in?  Do you want to overcome the things of this world?  The only way to do it is by making Jesus the Lord of your life.  Hand over the keys to your pain, give Him the reins to your heart, and surrender your life to His purpose.  I promise you that you will go much further in life with Jesus as Lord, than without Him.

Jesus wants to make Himself at home in your heart.  He wants to be real to you.  He wants you to know the power of God!  He wants you to experience the love that can set you free!

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”  ~John 8:36

Do you want to experience this freedom?  You can only have freedom when you have Jesus as the Lord of your life.

“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”  ~1 John 5:12
