Best is yet to Come
Your best life is just over the horizon.

Of Jesus’ many miracles, one of the best known is when He turned water into wine at a wedding in Cana. Running out of wine at a wedding was an unacceptable social blunder. At the wedding celebration in Cana, such a situation was about to embarrass the bridegroom.

Then, at the request of His mother, Jesus set about saving the day. Taking several pots that were normally used for ceremonial cleansing, he filled them with water and, miraculously, turned the water into wine and served some to the master.

It was exceptional wine, prompting the master to exclaim to the bridegroom, “Most people serve the good wine first and, when the guests have had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have saved the best for last.”

What a great message this is to us! Jesus’ miracle not only reiterates His promise of provision and that we will not run out of wine, it reveals that the wine we drink now is the “cheap wine” compared to the wine  – and the life – we will know in His Kingdom to come.

When we let go of this world and grasp His promise of eternal life in Heaven, we will begin to live in the freedom that comes in knowing that He has “saved the best for last.”

A Step Away
Heaven and Hell. Where a just God draws the line.

People have asked me, “If my God is so loving and kind, why would He allow some people to go to Heaven, while letting others go to Hell?”

I respond by saying that God does not have a scoring system for rating “when good is good enough to go to Heaven” and “when bad is bad enough to go to Hell.” God knows that we all fall short of the standard created by His Holy (perfect, flawless) nature. So, rather than thinking in terms of “good enough” and “bad enough,” think about a wall of separation caused by our sinful (flawed) nature being “incompatible” with God’s holiness…as we choose to go our way instead of His.

Jesus is (so to speak) “God’s line in the sand.” Those who seek to follow the light of His way will stand in eternity with Him. Those who prefer the darkness of the world’s way will not. Although God wants an eternal relationship with everyone, He only makes the offer. We must make the choice!
