The Circle of Life
For they themselves declare how we were received by you, and how you turned to God from idols, to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead—Jesus, who delivered us from the wrath to come.
– 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
There is a circle of life. We are born. We live. Then we will eventually die
should Jesus tarry in His return.
While on this earth we are to, in the words of Paul, serve the living and true
God (1 Thessalonians 1:9b). No matter our station in life, we will all one day
step through the door from this life into eternity.
As it is appointed for men to die once, but after this comes the judgment…
(Hebrews 9:27). Every Sunday, all across the world, you can hear beautiful
messages about Jesus coming out of the grave, but His resurrection is past and
yours is yet to come. If you are part of the first resurrection, then the
second one will have no power over you. If you are waiting for the Son from
heaven, then you will be delivered from the wrath that is to come upon the
I bow my knee to the Son of heaven and I choose to serve You, Lord, the only
true and living God.
