Time With God - Aug. 31, 2009
Monday 31st August
For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Because you have been united with Christ, you can be certain that you will be with Him in glory in the life to come!
“Your life is hidden with Christ in God.” Do you feel the security of your position in Christ? You are spiritually safe! As Jesus put it, “I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand” (John 10:28-29).
The Lord wants you to rest in your relationship with Him. Rest, knowing you’re cradled in the hands that rule the universe. Don’t be anxious about your eternal destiny. If you have put your faith in Jesus Christ, who died for you, then you have been spiritually united with Him by God (Romans 6:3-5). Your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Jesus returns and His glory is revealed, you will be there in glory with Him.
Your justification before God is finished. Stop trying to accomplish it and start living in light of your safe, secure relationship with Christ. Let Christ be your life and live for Him!
