Thoughts on Today's Verse...

My world is beautiful today — great weather, wonderful church, loving spouse, great kids, and blessed with all I truly need. But this will certainly change. Life is bound up with mortality. Love is connected to imperfect people. Separation by geographical distance, disagreement, and death are bound to happen at different points in our lives. However, my incredible assurance in Christ is that my true and lasting "life is now hidden with Christ in God." While things may be good in my life now, they're always vulnerable to being touched by mortality — changed by our broken world, flawed people, and personal missteps. When Christ comes, however, my life with God will be made gloriously perfect and unstained by evil, death, or decay. Now that's good news — and not just for me, but also for you as you center your life in Jesus!

My Prayer...

Holy and Righteous God, we thank you for your overwhelming and generous grace that saved us from sin. Thank you for Jesus, whose resurrection from the dead ensures our ultimate transformation into life forever with you and the resurrection reunion we will have with all who belong to you. Until that day when we get to praise you face to face, please receive our thanks and praise in Jesus' name. Amen.
