God Loves You and Wants You With Him Forever

This day we honor all of our Veterans, both those living and those who have passed on in their duty to help keep America safe, as a land of liberty, freedom, and justice for all. We must realize,  recognize, honor and give thanks to all of these heroes for all of  their sacrifices for our sakes.  When we remember and reflect upon all that has been done by our brave military men and women; it is only then that we know,  in our hearts, minds, and souls,  that they have dedicated their lives and sacred honor in order for ordinary citizens, like me and you,  to enjoy the freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness here in the United States of America.  Let us thank them, in every way possible, for their service!

Today also happens to be Sunday - the Lord Jesus Christ's day - where we attend services all around the nation (and around the world) to honor our Savior, Lord and King.  One day, believers will be with Jesus.  We will also be with all the loved ones in Christ who have already passed on into eternity.

Today's message from Dr. David Jeremiah in his series called God Loves You - He Always Has and Always Will was truly awesome!

 David God Loves You and Wants You With Him Forever | Week of November 11, 2012

After the disappointment that many family members, friends, and fellow Christians felt about the election on Tuesday, it is good to take our thoughts away from this temporal earth and see what God has in store for us In The Father's House.  Jesus told us that "in my Father's house, there are many mansions."

Here's the entire verse:

Jhn 14:2"In My Father's house are many mansions; if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Dr. Jeremiah does a brilliant job of providing many Scriptures that whet our appetites for heaven!  There is a very good reason why we can never be completely satisfied here with life on earth.  And the biggest reason is because God has placed eternity upon our hearts.  We yearn and long for something else - other than what we experience in this world.  Knowing this makes the disappointment of the election absolutely pale in comparison.  At a time when many are grieving over the horrid direction our country is moving, it is so good to know that no matter what happens in politics, it is only temporary.  We grieve, but not as those who have no hope.

Rom 8:38For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
Rom 8:39nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What's more, even though it is normal and natural to grieve deeply for those loved ones who have passed on, the hope of Jesus Christ gives us an eternal perspective which the secular world cannot.

 1Th 4:13But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.

I hear that Golden Corral® is giving free dinners to veterans on this day. (I assume that will be Monday, since it will be officially observed then.) There is no Golden Corral here, so I'll be fixing my own dinner as I usually do.
Tomorrow I'll be visiting vets who aren't as fortunate as me, as I've done before.

As're welcome.
