Anticipation of Grace
“keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.” Jude 21 (NIV)
We should live in anticipation of God’s outpouring of today’s grace and of tomorrow’s eternal glory in heaven. What makes us saved is an intentional faith that believes and thinks in terms of biblical truth. We may see evil around us, but in faith we keep ourselves focused on the promises of a loving, merciful, faithful God.
Each day we wait for the return of our Savior is a day of opportunity to grow in His grace and reflect in gratefulness for His blessings of mercy. We have eternal life now by faith, but on that day we will have eternal life by immortality.
Let’s pray today that our heart, mind, and soul would be fixed in faith on God’s love for us through Jesus.
