2 Corinthians 5:6-8
Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. (KJV)
Having faith means to challenge our soul to venture past what the eyes can behold. It means to believe that our almighty God exists and that His Son died in the cross for our sins so we may have everlasting life. It is to know in your heart that Jesus was resurrected from the dead in order to conquer death. It means to know that our life here on Earth is only temporary and that when we leave these bodies, we’ll be in the presence of our LORD. Faith is our assurance that we will live forever.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit help us to stay strong in our faith that You and Your Son will be waiting with open arms when we pass from this life to the next. While here in these mortal bodies, let us always live by the teachings expressed in Your Word and do our best to follow in Jesus’ footsteps and live according to Your will.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ…Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
