Earthbound to Heaven Bound

Today's Scripture

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst” - (John 4:13-14).

Thoughts for Today

With his last breath, Thomas Hobbes, the self-confessed atheist said, “I am taking a fearful leap into the dark!” On his deathbed the French agnostic Voltaire sadly spoke these words, “I am abandoned by God and man. I shall go to hell.”

In contrast to these two men, who died without Christ, is Christian evangelist Dwight L. Moody, whose last words were: “This is glorious ... Earth recedes; heaven is opening, and God is calling me.”

For believers, the moment we take our last breath is the first moment we will draw in the heavenly air of our new home; our abode with the Lord Jesus Christ. To be out of earth’s atmosphere is to be in His holy presence.

We rarely think about the difference between life lived here on earth and the one we will have in heaven. Instead, we often focus on our temporary home; how we can make it larger, decorate it with our favorite things, and enjoy it.

At some point, our thinking has to switch from being earthbound to heaven bound. The short time we spend on this earth is not even a fraction of the time we will spend in eternity. Jesus never missed an opportunity to prepare His followers for His death but, more importantly, He wanted them to understand His resurrection and the future blessings that would be theirs.

Nothing, but Jesus, can satisfy our thirst for living water. Only Jesus has the ability to provide the “living water” that satisfies our souls.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for satisfying my thirst. Forgive me for trying to quench my thirst with the things of this world. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.".

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
