On election night some of us stay up late watching the returns come in as the polls close. If the results are close we drink coffee and get some snacks as the hours pass by. Our future seems to balance on a razor’s edge as we wonder what our world will become
But in the kingdom of God it is not like that. The results are already in. Jesus Christ has been declared the King of Kings and the Lord of lords for all eternity! What is at stake is not His position but ours. Will we reverently prepare our hearts to serve Him? Heaven’s kingdom is not a joke a myth or an illusion. Through the blood of Jesus it has been purchased for His own. If we prepare ourselves for His return like the wise virgins, the faithful servants and merchants seeking pearls we will one day enter with joy. There will be nothing in all eternity to compare to the joy of serving Jesus who has given His life for our place in His unshakable Kingdom!
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. Hebrews 12:28 NKJV
