The Good Seed - Wednesday, June 14, 2017

For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
Philippians 3:20-21

If our expectation of the Lord Jesus fills our hearts and makes us happy, then it will be noticeable on earth that we are heavenly citizens. Heavenly life can only be evident in those who already live in unclouded fellowship with Christ and know heaven to be their future dwelling place. Our hearts cannot possibly enjoy fellowship with Him and simultaneously enjoy the pleasures of the world.
The apostle Paul longed for a full knowledge of Christ and fellowship with Him in glory. His eyes were directed towards heaven, from where he awaited Him. Paul had laid aside all that might come between him and the glorified Christ. He could thus live in the joyful expectation of his Lord’s coming.
Do we live in this expectation day by day? Is that the hope whose brilliance lights up our pathway of faith? How much comfort and strength for our daily we find in it! And the more this hope is a living reality within us, the less trials and difficulties will discourage us.
We are still our “lowly body” that suffers under the difficulties of life. But contemplating Christ in glory and trusting in His promises, we receive strength to withstand all adversity. Whether the Lord comes today, or difficult years lie ahead of us, the expectation of His coming to take us home enables us to overcome the trials of the wilderness journey. He is coming: that is certain!
Today’s reading: Acts 4:23-37
