Daily Fountain 2017 - The Route To Heaven






Monday January 30th

Bible Reading:     Heb. 11: 30 - 40

Topic:         The Route To Heaven

Through all generations, the righteous go through severe experiences, many to the point of losing their lives.

It was not easy for Noah of whom God bore witness that he was a righteous man. It was not easy for Abraham whom God called His friend. It was not easy for Jacob, Moses, David and the Prophets.

Above all, it was not easy for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Bible says about Him "For consider Him Who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself ......." (Heb. 12: 3)

The route to Heaven is not an easy road. The righteous are purified by it through the Baptism of sanctification. "these all died in faith, not having obtained the promises, but .... confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth" (Heb. 11: 13 - 16)

They were not of this world, Heaven is their home. (Phil. 3: 20)

Beloved, are you going through a crushing phase in your life? Does it seem as if darkness and hopelessness are all around you and that God is no longer interested in you?

Do not be utterly dismayed, you will soon burst into songs of everlasting praise.

All things will become new.

Prayer:
Lord keep me trusting you till the end, Amen

Memory verse:   Heb. 11: 39
"And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise."
