Where’s your crown?

Road to Heaven-COVER-KINDLE-THUMBNAILThe scripture for today, April 8 (4/8), is 2nd Timothy 4:8 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

“Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day ~ and not only to me but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”

The Apostle Paul was somewhere around his seventies at this writing. He’d been converted probably in his thirties. He’d spent the past forty years calling the bluff of all the governments who made it illegal to be a Christian on pain of death. Forty years of defying them all and telling people how to escape a place they didn’t believe they were going to and disrupting the religion they already had.  

Forty years of tolerating persecution, sometimes hungry and cold and beaten and hated. Forty years of seldom staying in a city longer than a few months, always on the go.  Forty years of never being satisfied with the number of people he had reached with the Good News of their escape from Satan, the Good News of a God who actually loved them, Good News of heaven.

Now he is in prison.

“I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

Oh, that we all could say this at the end of our life.

Road to Heaven-COVER-KINDLE-THUMBNAILTHE ROAD TO HEAVEN.  The road was never simple. It had many detours. It all began in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve sinned and their souls immediately died as God said it would. Satan had them and intended to keep all mankind.  So, God developed a plan. It took thousands of years to put the plan together. But finally, Jesus came.  He faced Satan head-on at the cross.  Satan had no choice but to release mankind at last.  A good read during the Easter Season.
