#1: Christians Should Know That God Is In Control!
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
Notice that the Bible doesn't say that all things are "good" but that all things, whether good or bad, work out for good for those who love God and called according to His purposes.
This is why Joseph was able to say to his brothers after they had sold him into slavery and after he had become second in command of all Egypt that what they did they intended to harm him but God intended it for good. GOD NEVER WASTS A HURT!
#2: Christians Should Know They Have A Heavenly Home!
“For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” 2 Cor. 5:1
Maybe this is why Jesus, on the Sermon of the Mount, taught not to store up our treasures here on earth but instead store them up in Heaven! What good is an earthy treasure when you're spending eternity in Heaven?
"This world is not my home, I'm just passing through. My treasures are laid out somewhere beyond the blue. The angels beacon me from Heaven's open door and I can't feel at home in this world anymore." Old Gospel Hymn
#3: Christians Should Know That They Will Be Like Jesus!
“We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” 1 John 3:2
Boy I sure can't wait! A new body, a new life, a new character that's just like Jesus! Come Lord Jesus, Come!
