Day Twenty-Nine
Sunday August 29th, 2010

And all the prosperous of the earth
Shall eat and worship;
All those who go down to the dust
Shall bow before Him,
Even he who cannot keep himself alive
-Psalm 22:29

When Jesus reigns on this earth, those who are prosperous, those who have saved up their riches in heaven, will eat and worship God. All those who decided to rebel will be judged and they will bow down before God like a defeated nation to their captor. There is no escape. Either we are on the side of Jesus or we are against Him. I want to be on His side. There are so many reasons to make that decision easy. Jesus is good. He takes care of us and loves us. That should be reason enough but in case you need something to fear, there’s also hell to consider. The natural eternal consequence of our sin is to spend eternity without God and that place is hell. We cannot escape death, and even in death we cannot escape the punishment. Give your life to God and you will escape. The only escape is surrender. Save your soul. The cause is lost. There is more than mercy for those who have surrendered, there is also grace.

There is a certain sense of inevitability that excites and causes a great hope for me. One day (...and I hope soon) EVERY knee WILL bow. All will know that God IS Lord of Hosts and Ruler on High. These current circumstances we find ourselves in will pass away and I will get to know my Lord in full. I can't wait.
