Freedom In The Future

October 21, 2013

My friend, the freedom we now have as Christians is so wonderful! But when the Lord Jesus, the Great Liberator, comes back to earth for His own, you will know at last the fullness of the glorious freedom of the children of God. He will change your body into a perfect body like His own and take you to your heavenly home. Eventually, Christ will even free the earth from the presence of all sin and all its effects.

Listen to what God says in His Word Revelation 21:4 –  “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

This is the verse I use most of the time when I write a sympathy note to a loved one or friend during their time of sadness and loss.

In the future my friend you can know God has a wonderful plan that includes you and me.

Listen to what the Apostle Paul said about the future in Romans 8:20-21 – “For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”

My friend, you are free, enjoy your freedom now in what we call the temporary. Look forward to the future. God is in absolute control of both. You are in good hands because you are in the hands of a loving heavenly Father.
