Our hope in Christ, and the reason we have received salvation, goes beyond the few years we have on this Earth. Jesus Christ didn’t die for our sins and rise from the dead just so we could have a good life on a temporary Earth that will pass away. Jesus Christ did all He did so that we can have eternal life in the Kingdom of God when we finally leave this Earth.
Dear God, I realize that everything about this earth is temporary, including my life. It’s because of your son, Jesus Christ, that my life doesn’t just end here. I have joy because I can look forward to a life with you in your kingdom for all eternity. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
