Ours for the Asking

Such beautiful water

Such beautiful water

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
love and faithfulness go before you. (Psalm 89:14)

We all want a land with the environment as it should be, unpolluted by the trash, clear crisp horizons, green healthy forest. If this is how we feel for the physical world how much more for spiritual. Oh, for a land where rightness and justice stretch from horizon to horizon. Where love and faithfulness flow unending from God to sustain life in all its abundance. The problem is me, I have pride, lust, selfishness, and other faults that hold me captive, and if I were permitted to enter would spoil the land of my dreams.

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(1 Corinthians 15:57)

In Jesus Christ I have a way to regain my innocence and purity, a new creation never to be a blemish again. I can enter into God’s presence and be part of the joy.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! … God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:17,21)

This is ours, just for the asking.
