Unto the Hills – August 31, 2013

There are countless opportunities to comfort others, not only in the loss of a loved one, but also in the daily distress that so often creeps into our lives.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction.

2 Corinthians 1:3,4 RSV

Victory is yours.  Claim it!  This doesn’t mean the Christian can never suffer defeat or experience low periods in life.  But it does mean that the Savior goes with you no matter what the problem.

Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:57 RSV

Once we have reached heaven, we will no longer be troubled or inhibited by physical or bodily limitations.  The crippled, diseased, wasted bodies will be strong and beautiful and vigorous.

When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”

1 Corinthians 15:54 NIV

As we trust Christ to save us, we can be comforted in the knowledge that He waits on the other side to take our hand and welcome us into His (and our) dwelling place where the mansion He has prepared for us stands in readiness.

Listen, I will tell you a mystery!  We will not all die, but we will all be changed.

1 Corinthians 15:51 NRSV

Paul believed in Christ and committed his all to Christ.  The result was that he knew Christ was able to keep him forever.  Strong faith and living hope are the result of unconditional commitment to Jesus Christ.

For we know in part and we prophecy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

1 Corinthians 13:9,10 NIV

We Christians should stand out like a sparkling diamond against a rough and dark background.  We should be poised, cultured, courteous, gracious, but firm in the things we do or do not do.  We should laugh and be radiant; but we should refuse to allow the world to pull us down to its level.

Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

1 Corinthians 4:2
