If we open our hearts to God in true repentance, asking for forgiveness of our sins, doing what is right in His eyes and trusting Him with everything we have, He will not forsake us. He will be our God forever, and He will give us everlasting life through Jesus Christ our savior.
“Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.”
This life is a vapor. In the blink of an eye, all of this will fade away. God has promised us, though, that He will remember us. He will raise us from the grave, give us the crown of glory for which we have desired, and we will reign with Him forever.
Even more so, we are to judge the angels. If we are to inherit such power, what manner of people ought we to be? Be kind toward one another. Give hope to brothers and sisters who bear sorrow in their heart. Show mercy always as the Lord has shown mercy to us.
When someone asks us of our hope, proclaim the good news of Christ’s life, death and resurrection and the coming kingdom, which will one day rain down from heaven as water pours from a cloud. Give hope to others and trust in the Lord always.
