- The End
- No comments
Have you ever read a book so engaging that you didn’t want to put it down? Agatha Christie’s book “And Then There Were None” was like that for me. It is a winding path of mystery and intrigue. I remember longing to know the end, to solve the mystery, to know who was behind the plot. But then as you turn the last page and you read the last word… it’s over.
Rarely is the end as satisfying as the journey.
As Christians, we know “The End” is really just the beginning. This world is not our home. We are just passing through. The Bible calls us strangers, pilgrims, and foreigners because we are looking toward the end when we get to be with Jesus!
Colossians 3:1-4 says, “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”
It’s so easy to get bogged down in the cares and troubles of this world. But we must live with the end in mind.
Some of our most beloved stories end with, “and they lived happily ever after.” That longing inside us to have peace, rest, and happiness forevermore is not a fairy tale, it’s fulfilled in Christ.
