“O Israel, how great is the house of God, and how vast is the place of His possession! It is great and has no end, it is high and immense.”
-Baruch 3: 24, 25
Do you ever think about eternity? It has no end. Let that sink in.
“And when the chief shepherd appears, you will win the crown of glory that never fades away.”
-1 Peter 5:4
We are sons and daughters of the Most High God, known and chosen by Him before the world began. How does this thought inspire you?
“For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west,
so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”
When the Lord returns, nature will speak to His power and glory. How does nature speak to you about God’s power today?
“Lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven,
when all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble,
and the day that is coming will set them on fire,
leaving them neither root nor branch,
says the LORD of hosts.
But for you who fear my name, there will arise
the sun of justice with its healing rays.”
We long for the day when Jesus will come in all His glory and all will know that He is Christ the King. But for now, we must endure a world that is largely opposed to Him. Where do you find strength to persevere?
“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
When we fall in love with Christ, we detach from the world and more and more long for eternity with Him. If you aren’t there yet, pray for the grace to grow more in love with Him today.
“Rejoice then, you heavens
and those who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
for the devil has come down to you
with great wrath,
because he knows that his time is short!”
The Satan’s time on earth is short but Sacred Scripture tells us that he prowls around like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. When you consider this, how does it motivate you to utilize your spiritual weapons — the rosary, the sacraments, prayer, etc.?
“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?”
How much time is wasted on worry? The grace we expend on worry and regret robs us of the grace we need for the present moment. Entrust your cares to the Lord and live today for the glory and honor of God.
