Letter for the month
I’m writing this somewhat earlier than usual – it’s mid September on a very hot day. Why writing early? Well Judith and I are off on holiday next week and we are going to seek out the sun! We are getting prepared and looking forward to the trip away, to see somewhere new and to experience the local culture.
Many of you have just finished reading through Revelation either for the first time or again after a long time. Cutting through the various frightening things that are/will happen to our world, I hope that you can find hope in it. There are warnings of what is going to happen such that we need to heed and turnaround from past behaviour or lifestyle and seek Christ as our redeemer. Perhaps we need to return to our ‘first love’, repent of our ‘complacency’ or ‘compromise’ with the world. Whatever our current position is with the Lord I hope that we are all prepared and looking forward to the glory of what lies ahead for those whose name is written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Picked upon the link with my thought about holiday? I’m looking forward to our holiday and I’m looking forward to the time when I’ll be with Jesus in the New Heaven and New Earth where all will be glorious, joyful, and all questions we have now will be irrelevant and forgotten in the light of His glory.
With such a glorious hope of the future eternity with God does it not stir you to be prepared and to want to share the love of Christ with others so that they too will be prepared for that day when we are all called to stand before Christ and to hear our names read out from His book of life. For me the prospect of the future joy covers any fear of what I might witness or have to endure for His name’s sake.
What about you?
