In these dark and troublesome days in which we are living, the most striking difference between the followers of Jesus and those desperate souls in the the world, is their peace and satisfaction.
This sign earmarks them as being totally different from those in the world, even though they are facing the exact same challenges. The sons of men (the world) are very rarely satisfied with their lot in life, no matter how much they have or how much they gain.
When God converts us, then Father God satisfies us also. We do not have to earn that fulfilment, that peace and satisfaction, it is given to us freely by Jesus at no cost. The farmer Job experienced it, so much so that he could boldly state, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him,” (Job 13:15).
Paul the Apostle said: “For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:21). You cannot frighten a Christian with heaven, if he lives he lives with Jesus, and if he dies he goes home!
The Psalmist says, “For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere,” Psalm 84:10.
God Bless you richly, as you enjoy the constant presence of Jesus!
