WPC: A Place In This World

This week THE DAILY POST HAS ASKED ME TO SHOW YOU MY PLACE IN THE WORLD.

This is actually something God has been clarifying for me of late.

Those who follow me know I am a preacher. I love the church God has sent me to. It is my place in this world for the moment. That said, though I have been here at Cornerstone for 20 years, and while I have no leading from the Lord to move on I know that Cornerstone is only my “for now” place.

My permanent place is with Jesus.

But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! 52 It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. 53 For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.

54 Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,[j] this Scripture will be fulfilled:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.[k]
55 O death, where is your victory?
    O death, where is your sting?[l]

56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I Cor. 15

Wherever I am in the now or the then. If I am with Him then that is my place in the world.

  1. I was literally just freaking out a few moments ago about all the tick diseases that are on the rise. Lyme is supposed to be bad this year… My family loves to hike and play in the woods. How can I keep them safe without forcing them to hide away? And God put on my heart “What is the very worst that could happen? To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Death has no sting.” And I was just really encouraged to lift my family up in prayer to Him and to trust that – no matter what – He will hold us. And that I don`t have to fear because – in the end – this isn`t my home. Heaven is! I was just praying about this and God put it on my heart…when I read your blog! I love it when God confirms a message like that. He`s really reminding me to focus on on Him and the home He has for us,as apposed to living fearfully and in confusion in thks temprorary home.
