SUNDAY'S SERMON ON THE BLOG.


Your real life is Christ, and when he appears, then you too will appear with him and share his glory! - Colossians 3:4.

Today, my life is fantastic, a loving wife who came home from Hospital last Monday, and is looking beautiful and healthy, great kids and grandkids, great church, great weather, and totally blessed with all I truly need.

But this will change, because life is bound up with mortality. Love is connected with flawed people. Separation by distance, difference, and death are bound to happen to a certain extent.

The incredible blessing I have in Christ, however, is that my true and lasting life is hidden with Christ in God. So while things may be good in my life right now, they're always vulnerable to being touched by mortality. When Christ comes, they will be gloriously perfect and unstained by evil, death, or decay. Now that's good news! Hallelujah!


Loving Father, I thank you so much for your overwhelming and generous grace that saved me from sin. Thank you for Jesus, whose resurrection from the dead insures my resurrection to lifewith you, and the resurrection reunion that I will have with all those who belong to you. Until that day, when I get to meet you face to face, I will continually thank you and praise you. In the wonderful name of Jesus, amen.
