A Good Thing - Mar. 30, 2011

Day 30 Theme: Future Things

God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away– Revelation 21:4

Sometimes the future looks dark. Because of financial problems or health problems it can look very uncertain.

We must accept the fact that life is often full of troubles and disappointments. In fact Jesus said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation.” But for God’s children, there is always a sight ahead which gives hope and joy. There are burdens to carry now, there are battles that must be fought, and often there are tears to shed. But think of that day when God will be with His people in heaven.

Here is the promise: “there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying neither shall there be any more pain.” What a day! Home at last. Free from conflict and struggle. Free from the temptation to sin; free from the very presence of sin.

Where there is no sin there is no sorrow, there is no crying, no pain. Living in the presence of Jesus and finding it a delight to praise and serve Him forever.

While we are yet here we need to remember that the Lord uses our sufferings to move us to think about heaven, and to rejoice in the thought of going there, and to live now in the anticipation of having every tear wiped away one day soon.
