Second Will Be First
Time Will Be No More!
Scripture Reading: 2 Peter 3:9-18
Key Verse: 2 Peter 3:8
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
Will you feel any pressure today with your time or your work? Do you ever get stressed out or overwhelmed? Have you ever experienced bouts of depression or discouragement? Do you ever say that you wish there could be a few more hours in your day?
My guess is that all of us have experienced these feelings in this life we have to live now, but try to imagine the life Jesus has gone to prepare for us who have chosen to be second. There will be no pressure because there will be no time. Our printed key verse reminds us that in God’s world a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day! In other words, God’s world that is awaiting us is void of all time pressures. Think of it, no rushing—ever! You and I will enjoy a world that just is and will never end. No anxiety, no wondering what is coming next in God’s world. Everyone will live in the present forever and ever!
Our reward for the sacrifice we make in this life will make being second well worth it! No tears, no sorrow, no discouragement, and no boredom. Living in God’s paradise will be 100 times better than the best day of your life now! The exciting thing is, it won’t be for just one day; we will enjoy if forever!
Father, I want to be a servant today. As I serve others, I know I will be serving you. Open my eyes to the needs you want me to see! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
