The Story Continues

2013-1-TheStory-Header(1)

Some days are hard, aren’t they? Some days are so full of stress and anxiety and fear and heartache that you long to get away. Maybe you were able to take a vacation this summer where you enjoyed some good food, a beautiful destination and a change of pace. No bills to pay. No deadlines to meet. No stress.

But then the vacation ended. And as soon as you arrived back home you could feel it again. The things that needed to be done. The projects waiting to be completed. The tension in relationships. Back to a world where it seemed as if Satan might be winning. But for a moment you had a tiny taste of what could be.

The Book of Revelation is a taste of what will be. It is the promise that in the end God wins and everything will be as it is meant to be. Life may be hard now. Life may be unfair now. There may be challenges now. But even now, everything is not as it appears to be. There is an upper story that is being played out. And in the end, God will demonstrate that he is on the throne and he will make everything right.

And for those whose names are written in the Book of Life, he will give a life in Paradise. The Apostle John was given a vision of the New Jerusalem that comes down from heaven. It is an immense and indescribable place. The end will be much like the beginning. The God who shaped Eden out of chaos will take the chaos of our world and shape it into something new. A New Heaven and a New Earth.

How do you get your name in the Book of Life? You have to know the Son of the Father. The Bible says, “All who call on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13). So call on his name and make your reservation.
