REJOICE IN THE LORD!
“Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20
HOPE FOR TODAY!
Are you walking with Jesus in your life today? If you are considering this your victory this is great! There are many things that happen in life whereby people would consider them to be victories, to be close to Jesus is the one that will give to us the greatest joy! This is the one victory that we should rejoice about the most. This is true rejoicing!
So we see here, Jesus, while observing his disciples returning in victory, points not to their current success only, but rather He continues to turn their eyes towards heaven where their Father is, and where their ultimate victory will be. Our ultimate goal, final, and greatest victory will be when we are with Jesus in heaven. While we will have many successes here on earth, our greatest joy will be when we are with him in heaven!
Knowing this we should not rejoice in our earthly victories and forsake our goal of that future we will share with him! How shall we continue to rejoice if we simply stop pressing forward and fail to press forward to the mark of His high calling?
Press on towards the mark of His high calling and imagine what a day that will be! Then we shall sing and rejoice! Yes rejoice while we are here on earth, but rejoice because your name is written in the Lambs book of life, and in heaven, and your reservation awaits you! As it is written,
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus!” Philippians 3:14
There is coming a day when no heartaches shall come, no more clouds in the sky, no more tears to dim the eye! All is peace forevermore on that happy golden shore, what a day, glorious day that will be! Jesus is our Joy!
“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his son.” 1John 5:11
Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice!
