Many times we find ourselves struggling to stay pure, holy, and righteous. Sometimes we might struggle with trying to realize and see why we are living our lives as followers and disciples of Christ. The good news is that there are many reasons that we are following Christ and they all offer something in return! In Hebrews 12:28-29, the Bible tells us:
“Since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be destroyed, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping Him with holy fear and awe. For God is a consuming fire.”
This passage is so beautiful because it tells us what we are receiving because of our choice to believe. It says that we are receiving a KINGDOM THAT CANNOT BE DESTROYED. This kingdom is going to be our home, our place of eternal worship. This kingdom is Heaven! For this reason we should continue to be thankful to God and continue to praise Him and worship Him for all He is going to give us and all we will receive, despite the fact that we are SO undeserving.
Let’s just be encouraged by this passage and know that we are going to one day receive a Kingdom that will never perish and that is eternal. That is encouraging enough for me. Let’s really keep this in mind before sinning. Before committing a sin against God let’s realize that He is giving us so much, yet we are giving Him nothing and less than nothing by sinning. Be encouraged to stay on this wonderful path of beauty of hardship because it is SO worth it! Be encouraged to turn your head away from sinning because you now know what awaits you after this life!
God bless you and thank you for reading today’s post! Have a great day and make the right decisions!
