As we enter a new reality, let us not forget how God met us in our time of need and showed us how much He loves us.
During the pandemic season, we saw:
- Lives transformed by the gospel of Christ
- Over 500,000 people came to faith
- Weary patients were comforted
- The digital church rise up
- Innovation take root – both in the church and in medicine
The Lord met us where we needed it most.
Today, as we close out this devotional season, we rest in the words of Jude,
“Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.”Jude 1:24
Jude reminds us that all glory and honor goes to God. As believers, we have the assurance that if we were to die tonight, we would be with Him in glory immediately.
As believers, we want this for our neighbors. We want our friends who are far from God to know him. We learned that we need to lay our burdens and fears at the foot of the cross. God can handle it.
Jude issues a doxology to us,
“All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.”Jude 1:25
We are His children, and we rest in Him. Life will not be easy, but it will be rewarding. Our charge, as believers, is to plant, water, and harvest souls for the kingdom of heaven.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ever ask or imagine, I encourage you to live your calling.
Go and encourage your friends, family, and neighbors. Let God use you to change generations for His kingdom.
Prayer: Thank you for being my Savior and for calling me to your family. Help me to live my calling, and to plant, water and harvest souls as you guide and direct. Thank you for your grace and your goodness! Amen!
