“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.” Philippians 3:20-21

normal_Jesus_Heaven“As I entered the gates of that city, My loved ones all knew me well. They took me down the streets of Heaven; such scenes were too many to tell; I saw Abraham, Jacob and Isaac Talked with Mark, and Timothy But I said, “I want to see Jesus, ‘Cause He’s the One who died for me.”

Every once and a while I need to reach back and focus on why I am on this journey. It is so easy to lose sight and forget your purpose and your destination. Sometimes you have to look at the map, and get a clear vision as you assure yourself that you haven’t lost your way, and that you are still going in the right direction.

Satan at times has us believing God’s Mandate is unattainable. But that’s when we tell ourselves. My Faith and God’s word lets me know God has my back at all times. Isaiah 48:17 (NIV) tells us.” This is what the Lord says your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.”

But struggles sometimes takes its toll on a child of God that’s why you can never lose sight of the vision of  walking with friends and love ones down the streets of Heaven, as the brightness of the Son, our Savior illuminates the eternal sky as the redeemed sings in unison Worthy is the Lamb who gave it all for our Salvation.

As I envision that scene, now the struggles of this old world become only a challenge, or a mountain worth conquering. The Journey now doesn’t seem so overwhelming thereligion2 setbacks and trials are but a moment in time. God knew we would all have times when we felt like given up, but he provided His Word a road-map that would never get us lost or discourage about the route we have to take too finish the course.

Each time I read a promise in God’s Word, a promise of love and Hope I understand failure can never be an option, only endurance until we cross into the Promise Land. My friends it want be long when we will received our true reward life eternal when Christ says “it is finished” until then, this journey will demand commitments from all of God’s children.

So we must remain focused, we must also stimulate ourselves, and set higher goals, in the work of bringing more souls under the umbrella of the faith of Jesus Christ. We must forever find ways to evangelize as we take the good news of Christ return to a world that is disintegrating before our eyes each day.

“This life at best is but the Christian’s winter; and the bleak winds of winter disappointments, losses, pain, and anguish–are our lot here; but our hopes are reaching forward to the Christian’s summer, when we shall change climate, leave all the wintry blasts and fierce tempests behind, and be taken to those mansions Jesus has gone to prepare for those that love Him.(”Life Sketches of Ellen G. White, pp. 239, 240.)

urlSuccess comes from finishing the course Christ sets for us. It must be all about Him and his will. We must die in Christ daily as we continue to stay focused on the prize, life eternal through Jesus Christ who gave it all for us. Friends remember the controversy and battle has been fought and won on Calvary, and it will also be won once our death to self and resurrection of a new life in Jesus Christ takes place as we now begin to carry the  cross for Christ.

But we must also endure while allowing the Holy Spirit and God’s Word too  keep us focused and moving forward. For it can only be our faith and the power of the Cross that gives us the strength to finish this course. As we become “more than conquerors through him who loves us.”


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
