I awoke this morning to another day on Earth,
closer to our Blessed Hope –
one day closer to the ecstasy of being with
our Almighty, loving Father,
our beloved, living, High Priest-Savior-King Jesus Christ,
our loving, guiding, comforting Holy Spirit.
Time decays the dross of this life to reveal the ever-increasing glory of life in Christ.
Let the oppressed, the sorrowful, the hurting and the poor rejoice in this:
all the demons in Hell,
all the ill-intentions of all our enemies,
all the adverse circumstances and
all the strained relationships of a whole lifetime
cannot overcome the ultimate victory of our faith in Christ
and His love for us!
Glory, praise, honor, power, blessing and dominion
be unto our precious, praying Master – Jesus, the Lamb of God!
32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:32-39 (ESV)
