So often, we get discouraged by the fiery darts that life throws at us.  We sometimes let these things drag us down and forget that this is not our home.  As awful as life can be, we are sometimes content with what we see, and never think of the greater things that lie ahead.

Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us where we will never again have to deal with sin, death, sickness, poverty, or any other travesty that haunts us every day.

John 14:3
New International Version (NIV)

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

Throughout the Word of God, you will find examples of where Christ came to those who thought there was no other way.  The ultimate example is where He died on the cross, taking the place of everyone… those who mocked Him, the ones who pierced His side, and the ones who wept at His feet.  Every single person who was born of a sinful nature received the promise that they could live with Him for eternity if they accept Him as their Lord and Savior.

Regardless of what you are going through, remember that you are not alone.  There is One who walks with you, and there is an ultimate promise that awaits you.  Accept it today!

Questions to ask yourself…

  1.  What are the things you deal with most often that make you feel alone?
  2.  Do you sometimes just forget that Christ has promised that He will return and take you to be with Him.
  3. Are you ready?  Have you asked Christ into your life as your Lord and Savior?
