“Everlasting Fellowship”January 3, 2008
I John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
This is just a note to let everyone know how much I appreciate the fellowship that we have here in bloggerland. Even though I’ve never met anyone here personally, (despite my fervent desire to do so) I know that each one is travelling through this temporary world, and running with patience the race that is set before us. Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, wherein we greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, we are in heaviness through manifold temptations. (Sorry for running scriptures together) A lot of times, I don’t get around to responding as I would like; primarily due to time constraints, but I love all of you dearly nonetheless.
It makes me, all the more, desire the day when we are no longer separated by atoms, but are forever in the presence of the Lord Jesus in a city not made with hands. This corruptible having put on incorruption and this mortality having put on immortality. I’ve been thinking about this lately; just how temporal this world is. It appears solid and unmovable; and yet we know that heaven and earth shall pass away. When we can grasp the eternal perspective, the trials of this present realm seem to become ever so insignificant. May we all endure unto the end and not be sidetracked by the ever increasing array of diversions that cross our path.
Last Friday, as we were traversing Georgia (we drove down on I-95, but returned on I-75) I was thinking of all the saints who reside there and wishing that I could somehow meet up with them. Yet I know that even if we never meet on this side, we shall be shall all be together forever in that heavenly place that resides beyond time and space. Therefore, I rejoice in lifting up each one in prayer upon every rememberance; knowing that effectual fervent prayer avails much.
Well, I have to get ready for work. This post probably seems a little strange, but I just wanted to share how much everyone out here means to me. I wish to all a blessed day in Jesus.
Revelation 19:7-8 “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his bride hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”
