So, the point made last week is that God does not overwhelm us yet. We are in the kindergarten or even pre-school of life. We might get into first grade before we die, but we sure won’t understand His higher math. In this life the best we are going to get is just a hint. The real life and the real joy is in the life to come.
Let me just close in a prayer and if you have any questions, you can message me below.
Father we that You for this glorious passage that you have manifested your glory in Christ Jesus and He, the resurrection and the life, then, is our hope. At the end of the day it is a person that we want to see and not just a principle and that it is a person at the end of our journey that we wish to see. You have given us that hope. Here is the person that in fact dwells within us and we entrust our lives to Him. I pray that if there is anyone here who has not transferred his or her trust to you that they would do so, knowing that only the things we entrust to You are truly safe. We pray these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
