The Good Seed - Tuesday, May 23, 2017
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
1 John 3:2

“We must not tie our ship to a single anchor, nor our life to a single hope.” What is your opinion of this maxim? It actually comes from an eminent philosopher of ancient Greece.
Think about it!
In my own case, I should say: if it concerns God, then it is the very thing that I do! My whole life depends on a single hope. What is that hope? Today’s verse from the Bible expresses it: after this life, I shall see Him who loved me and gave Himself for me, that is, Jesus Christ, my Saviour and Lord. I shall be with Him in the glory of heaven. That really makes my life worth living. I have a goal that makes the trials of the pilgrim pathway worthwhile. I have a hope that is not an illusion but a certain future.
What gives me this certainty? One Person alone: He who bore “the chastisement for my peace” on the cross of Calvary (Isaiah 53:5). There He, the just One who suffered for me, the unjust, was made sin to bring me to God (cf. 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18). He is now in the glory of heaven with God as a Man, standing surety for my place with Him there.
This fact is indeed a sure “anchor of the soul” (Hebrews 6:19), to which I can firmly tie my whole life. Whether I go through death, or whether Jesus Christ comes to take me to Himself with all God’s children, that is my life’s goal. It is also its content and strength.
Today’s reading: 2 Samuel 21
