now that excites me

August 30, 2017



As I write this blog there is great excitement surrounding  the quickly approaching eclipse of the sun. Many events have been planned around this rare event in nature.
 

But – somehow this eminent event is not becoming a priority for me. Obviously, the eclipse is a reminder of the marvelous creation that is all around us. It also is a reminder of the great creative powers of God.
 

However, there is something ahead that is far more exciting for me. That “something” is the indescribable glory surrounding the throne of God. The anticipation of seeing THAT is what brings excitement to me.

You may recall the statement made by Stephen as he was dying.  In Acts chapter 7 we have the record. Stephen had been preaching Christ. The enemies of Christ began to stone him. Just before his spirit left his body, he cried with a loud voice,  “Lord Jesus receive my spirit” (v.59). But just before that statement we have this recorded in verse 55, "But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and SAW THE GLORY OF GOD, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God.”



Have you ever tried to envisioned what that sight – seeing the glory of God – would have been like? 1 Timothy 6:16 will help us. Here are the words describing Almighty God: “Who only has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto: whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.”



One day in a spiritual form I will be allowed to view that glory. Now THAT is what excites me. How about you?
