Mid-Week Message - Forever Relationship
In 2012 I broke my leg and ended up spending over four months in a hospital bed in our living room. He had to do everything for me. And I do mean everything. This year he has gone through his illness. I haven't had to do all the same physical things for him but he has needed me to be emotionally and spiritually available and I have done my absolute best to do that for him.
Both instances have reminded us of the relationship we have with Christ Jesus. As we promised not to leave each other, so He also promised not to leave us, only His promise is for eternity. We have been together 27 years. Our Lord knew us before we were born. He was there when we were conceived. He saw each of our cells dividing and the first beat of our tiny hearts. He watched as we developed each limb and hair. He was there when we took our first breaths and through all of the bumps and scrapes of childhood. He has walked with us through every moment of our lives, good or bad, and has promised to never leave us. We have no fear of being separated from Him even through death, unlike an earthly relationship.
This life, and everything in it, is temporary. Everything except for the bond we have with our Savior. That will continue forever. Are you feeling alone or abandoned? If you are a believer then you can turn to Him and He will hold you tight and reassure you that you are His and that you will never be alone. If you do not know Him personally but would like to have that same oneness please feel free to ask me, or anyone who carries the name Christian, how to have that same relationship. There is no need to wait and all of Heaven will rejoice over you with singing and celebration when you make that choice. Have a blessed week and know that you are loved completely by the Creator, Almighty God.
