May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
This is the apostles Paul’s hope for the Corinthian believers. This is God’s promise to us as sons and daughters of His kingdom. This world is not our home. In this world we will face trials and we will face tribulation. But through it all the Lord sustains us. Through it all His grace is sufficient.
He has called us to fix our hearts and our eyes upon Him. Our focus in life cannot be what we are going through. Our focus in life cannot be the giants that we are facing at the present moment. Because in everything we face the Lord will lead us to victory. In everything we face the Lord will provide. In everything we face the Lord will fulfill His every promise.
There is nothing greater on this earth than the love of God, His grace, or the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. Through faith in Jesus Christ we have fellowship with the Holy Spirit every day. The Lord desires that we would draw near and spend time in His presence. His desire is that we would draw near and pour our hearts out to Him.
The day and hour of His return draws ever nearer. He is seeking a people today who will seek Him with their whole hearts. A people who will remove every hindrance and every idol. Let us remember that this world is not our home. That this life is but a breath compared to eternity. Let us be willing to lose everything for the sake of the cross. May our lives simply be used to glorify and magnify the name of Jesus.
