“I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.” — John 10:28-29.
“What a mercy to know that He alone has called us, will keep that which we have committed to Him against that day, and that, all these events which seem confusion to us are, even now, accomplishing His own eternal plans and purposes of love.” — Heaven Opened: The Correspondence of Mary Winslow, Mary Winslow, p. 19.
3 Steps to Take
1. Ponder: Do you ever look at world events, with all the vast misery and confusion that is around us, and wonder if God has a plan for humanity?
2. Remember: God’s love and grand plan for humanity is found in Christ Jesus. In Christ we see God’s love for us and because of Jesus we can look forward to a future of goodness, peace, and life in the new heavens and new earth. The wickedness and strife around us will be no more when Christ comes. Already Christ’s transforming power is seen in the world in the lives of believers who strive to love him and in those around them.
3. Rejoice: Our salvation in Christ is not dependent on our works. God loves us, has claimed us, and is changing us to be more like Jesus. By the Holy Spirit we will show fruit of righteousness because we belong to our heavenly Father and are being made fit for our heavenly home. Rejoice that you have a Father who has a grand plan for you.
