For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9.
God’s ways are well beyond what we see right now. I believe that if we: “Drive out the scoffer, strife will go out, and quarreling and abuse will cease.” Proverbs 22:10. The higher way of living is to stand for what is right. This is done in love. Love “does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” I Corinthians 13:6-7.
My prayer and fervent hope is that we will pursue this life in love. That we will care more about the condition of another’s soul, than anything else. I want us to bring as many people to heaven with us as possible.
May we be intentional in focus – to redirect our attention to God and His Word. That we will not lose sight of the fact that: “Christ died for our sins, . . . that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day . . ..” I Corinthians 15:3b-4. This is the love that conquered death. This is 2020 vision.
