"In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also." - John 14 V2, 3
"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself." - Philippians 3 V20, 21
For a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, the good news and the real hope is one day we will be in the presence of our Lord and Saviour. Our present state is a temporary one and our sorrows are for a short moment. We who trust in the Lord will one day be transformed in the likeness of our Lord. We will have a glorious body and there will be no more sorrow. But until we are in the presence of our Lord, we should persevere and remain steadfast in our faith. Rejoice in the Lord and keep your eyes on the Saviour. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
