Thought For Today: “Our Present State”
In this world, what lies before us are hardships and strife. Jesus makes this abundantly clear saying that while in Him we can have peace, but in this world, we will have troubles, even though He has overcome it through His death and resurrection (John 16:33).
But if Jesus has overcome the world, then why do we go through these trials and tribulations?
Even though Jesus has overcome the world, the world is still overcome by evil, therefore, both nature and humanity groan waiting for final redemption (Romans 8:22-23).
What will help, is for us to remember that we are pilgrims passing through this world (Romans 2:11-12), because our real home is heaven where Jesus has gone on before us to prepare a special place for us (John 14:3).
Therefore, we are to endure our present state of trials and tribulation with this hope and assurance of heaven being our true home where there’s no more tears or suffering but true and perfect peace.
