A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
II Timothy 4:8
“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”
It is exciting to live the Christian life here on planet earth but it is nothing to what it is going to be.God tells us here in His Word there going to be a crowning day.We will receive a crown of righteousness and this verse goes on to say it will be for all those that love His appearing.It was the summer of 1957 that I began to understand that one day Jesus was going to return in the air and receive all His saints and take them up into heaven and they shall ever be with the Lord.I began to look forward to this grand event and I have taught it ever since, believed it, and looked forward to it.I love to think about the great event that is just ahead.Whatever we may face, discouragement, persecution, or even death --- we know we will be with Jesus throughout all eternity.Do you have this assurance?
Our God is alive ---put Him first in your life
