Certainty in Eternity

Looking for certainty? Desiring to know someone has your back? Wanting to have a guarantee you won’t be cheated out of? Want to know your future? Have you looked in the obvious direction? Have you looked to the only One who can give you all this?

Guarantees can be broken. I’m sure someone reading this has bought a product, it failed, took it back to activate the guarantee only to discover there was some small print that invalidated their claim. It is frustrating. It can make you feel small or stupid.

Certainty is only a pipe dream in this world. When we really think about it, we cannot be certain we will get another breath, another day, another week, another month, another year. We cannot be certain of much in this world, but there is one thing we can be certain of.

The one certainty, guarantee, promise we can count on is that those in Christ will be raised to live with Him for eternity. It is more certain than the sun coming up tomorrow. It is more certain than your ice cream being sweet. You cannot be more certain than spending eternity with Christ if you have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior.

Imagine the confidence you can have in His promise. Ask yourself why you fear anything. Think about the extravagant gift of a promise that is certain to be kept. Trust the guarantee made by God, the One who will never renege on it. Nothing can dislodge, disrupt, stop, reroute, or in any way keep God from fulfilling his promises.

I pray we are all confident in Gods promises. I pray we trust in the guarantee of eternity made to us. I pray each one of us are certain in our commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Be buried with Christ. Be risen in Christ. Be certain. Be confident. Trust the promise. Accept the guarantee.

Romans 6:5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.
