Do Not Let Your Hearts Be Troubled - 15th August 2016 - Monday's Dose

Pin It


"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God;
trust also in me. In my Father's house are many
rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.
I am going there to prepare a place for you. And
if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
back and take you to be with me that you also may
be where I am." - (John 14:1-3 ).

Jesus, of course, was talking about coming back to
get his followers to take them to be with him in Heaven. Jesus' first coming is an indisputable fact of history. His second coming is just as certain. What isn't certain is the date of his coming. Over the years many have tried to predict that date and have fallen flat on their face. Only God knows that day.

Others have accused us Christians of being so heavenly minded we are of no earthly use. True, some people are this way, but that is when they use their religion as an escape from or defense against
facing their own reality.

I appreciate what David Shibley wrote: "Remember a 'heavenly minded' Wilberforce whose passion for
human dignity helped eradicate the slave trade
throughout the British empire. Go to the inner
city of Chicago and watch the tireless workers
at the Pacific Garden Mission as they tell
inquiring street people how to get to heaven
while providing them food and shelter on the way.
Scan the world and look at the thousands of
hospitals, shelters, leprosariums, children's
homes and colleges that have been built in
heaven's honor. The point is obvious. Those who
truly set their sights on another world are
often the most active for constructive change
in this one.

Prayer: "Our Heavenly Father
As Jesus taught us to pray, may Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. And help me, while
here on earth, to be a part of your plans and
what you are doing in the world today. Thank
you for hearing and answering my prayer.
Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
