The Way Home

We were both relaxed as we heard the voice announcing the boarding time for families with children (not us) and first class (also not us). Anticipating the usual long wait in the airport, we continued reading calmly until departure time.

From Everlasting to Everlasting

Isaiah 57-59; Psalm 103; 2 Peter 3

Psalm 103:15-17 “As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field, the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him…”
2 Peter 3:8 “With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day…”

The beauty and yet the fragility of flowers is a picture of our lives in the scope of eternity. We are passing through and our significance is not based on the beauty of the flower but rather whether we know our Creator and live for His eternal glory. Our Creator God is from everlasting to everlasting and His love for us is also eternal. Our significance is found in responding to this love and sharing it with others, that they too could know God. Our lives here on earth will soon end, but for those who know the Lord’s love, they will live from everlasting to everlasting.

Lord God Almighty, I am humbled that you would love me and desire to know me. You are eternal, I am temporal. Thank you for filling me with your love and your Spirit that we would be united forever.

Daily Prayer Guide

J & M
Please pray for strength and endurance for this family as they continue to serve with the team in South Asia. Pray for J as he builds friendships with neighbors and reaches out to them with the hope of the Gospel. Pray for M as she teaches in a local school. Pray also for their children, that they would be encouraged in their faith and united in purpose.

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. - Philippians 2:1-3
