Contented with Christ

Today’s Reading: Hebrews 11:8-16


Hebrews 11:13 — These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. 


God promises a heavenly homeland. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob lived as foreigners and nomads in tents. They did not have homes built on foundations in cities. They lived in the wilderness by faith in the promise that God would somehow make them a blessed nation. None of these men lived long enough to see this promise fulfilled, but they were content with the life God had given to them.


No matter what country we live in, there is a better country, a heavenly homeland waiting for us who are Christ’s. In that place, we will be part of a city designed and built by God Himself, one with eternal foundations. None of the great cities of this world with their architectural marvels can compare to the city God has made for us.


One day, we will leave these tents—these bodies that we have been given by God to live in while we dwell in the wilderness of this world. We will go home to the place Christ and His Father have prepared for us to live forever. We will not miss our lives in this present world because where we will go is the best place, far better than anywhere we can imagine.


But for now, we are foreigners and nomads in this world, living by faith in God’s promises. Paul wrote “Godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world” (1 Timothy 6:6-7). Godliness is our privilege. We can be like God—loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled—and have divine contentment with what God has given to us.


Is Christ enough? Is He your heart’s desire? Is His grace sufficient? Do His love and His words of life satisfy all the needs of your soul? Let us pray today to be contented with godliness that comes from having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Devotional

“Is Christ enough?”

When I get to the bottom of the pain, I eventually feel that everything is in vain. From there, I realize that Jesus is my only hope. right!

I can't take anything. I leave everything behind.

On the day I meet Jesus

, looking forward to seeing Him that “You did a good job, Inhae living according to my words.”

Christ is enough!


..2024년 5월 5일 묵상


“그리스도면 충분합니까?”


고통의 밑바닥까지 다다르면 결국 모든 것이 헛된 것임을 느끼게 된다. 거기서 나는 예수님이 나의 유일한 희망임을 깨닫는다.

맞다!

나는 아무것도 가져갈 수 없다.

모든 것을 놓고 가야한다.


예수님을 만나는 그 날

, “인혜야, 내 말대로 사느라 애썼어. 잘했어.”라는 주님을 기대한다.

예수님이면 충분하다!
