The Only Life Worth Living For
Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.' Revelation 18:21
There are certain things that are just going to happen. I mean, these things are more certain than the sun setting at the end of the day.
Certain thing number one-everyone will someday die, unless Jesus takes them in the Rapture.
Certain thing number two-Jesus will come one day in power, overthrowing the Babylonian system of the world and destroying all the power of the devil.
Nothing is more certain than that. The economy is certainly not certain. You can't count on your job always being there. You don't know what might happen someday in traffic. Accidents happen all the time.
Happy surprises happen, too. Maybe you thought you were done having kids. Maybe you didn't see that promotion coming. Or maybe just your son mows the lawn without you asking him to. The point is, there are a lot of things that we think are certain, that we think we can plan for, that really are not certain at all.
But there's this thing in us in how God made us that we like security. We like certainty, because then we can plan. Certainty is strength, it's immovable, it's a rock upon which we can build our lives.
I'm here to tell you today that there is only one rock, and His name is Jesus Christ. He is the one and only guarantee that can protect you from death, judgment, and Hell. He is the only one who can deliver you from getting caught in the ruin of the Babylonian system that will certainly come.
Nothing in this world is certain except that it's going to end. The question that we all face today is, will we place our trust in Jesus so that we can have security when those truly certain things come?
Prayer Lord Jesus,
Thanks for helping me to see that You are the only truly certain thing in my life that I can trust. I turn away from all the things that I have trusted that steal my heart from you and I turn to You today!
