It’s been a long time, good old blog.
It’s been a time of learning and growing. A time of discovery and reflection. There have been times of laughter and times of sadness. There have been times when I wanted to shout for joy and yet there have been times when life didn’t seem so easy.
But still I know this:
„Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord – for we walk by faith and not by sight – we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. Therefore also we have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him.”
II Corinthians 5:6-9
As Christians we are sojourners, guests in this world – we are not of it. We are already citizens of another kingdom, we already have been given the most vital, valuable gift of all – salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ. And yet we are still here on this earth, struggling with sin, running the race, longing for the time when we will finally be with our Savior. That time will come and it’s fast approaching. Each day, each hour, each minute brings us closer to that day. What a comfort.
Let us then live „in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:10)
