Are we there yet?
Don’t you hate it when you hear this multiple times on a trip. It makes a long trip seem even longer.
Sometimes on a trip it seems we will never arrive at our destination. Surely, it’s just around the corner or over the next hill.
But what if the journey is just as important as the destination. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Life is a journey, not a destination.”
Sometimes in the struggles of life we yearn for Heaven. One day we will break free from the bondage and chains that seem to trap us. Eventually, we will have victory over sin, sickness, death, and the devil.
But what about now? Though our ultimate destination is Heaven, we need to enjoy victory now. Like the Apostle Paul, we must be ready to go, but willing to stay.
This Sunday I will conclude a four-part sermon series called: Finding Hope. It is based on 1 Corinthians 15. In this series that defends the resurrection, I have uncovered that the resurrection is central to the Gospel, our faith, and our future, perfect body. This week, in my message “Our Future Victory” from 1 Corinthians 15:50-58, we will learn that resurrection will give us ultimate victory.
But it’s not just ultimate victory, we can have present victory. Did you know that God promises that whatever you do for Jesus really matters? You may not feel very productive or victorious, but God promises that we are “more than conquerors through Jesus Christ our Lord.” This Sunday I will encourage you from God’s Word to be faithful, strong, never quit serving Jesus.
Join us this Sunday @ 10:30 a.m.
