"How to Respond to a Messed - Up World"
“This world is not our home; we are looking forward to an everlasting home in heaven.” Hebrews 13: 14 LB
Many people say that this world seems pretty messed up. I agree with them. Next thing they ask is how do we respond to it?
First, receive God’s grace daily. If God is willing to wait to end this world so that He can show us His grace, then we need to receive it on a daily basis.
Second, remember this is temporary. Don’t get too caught up in this fallen world, the fashions or its values because nothing you see is going to last forever. One day it will all be gone.
There are only two things that are going to last for eternity: God’s Word and His people. So you need to build your life on those things, rather than the temporary.
The good news is that if you are having a pain it’s not going to last forever either. That should be incredibly comforting to you as you go through your day today.
Pain will come your way. It will likely come your way, often. But it won’t last.
Some day, you’ll be in heaven if you believe in Jesus. All the pain, physical, metal or emotional, will be gone. You can count on that!
Peace in the Lord,
