Revelation 22:3-4 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.
The hope of our eternal promise should be our most powerful motivation to remain humbly obedient. Learning to serve my Lord in this life prepares me for my eternal habitation – the fullness of my relationship and contentment, with Christ, comes from my willing obedience to all He has commanded. May Jesus help me to stay focused upon experiencing His presence. It is so easy to substitute function and persistence for the indescribable presence of Christ. We have been called to glorify God and enjoy fellowship with Him forever. The Mary/Martha dilemma is a constant challenge – blending well intended service with pure spiritual devotion. We can neither neglect God’s call to service nor His desire for our worship and devotion. The transformation of our hearts demands the transformation of our will. My ability to see my Lord is hindered by my human nature – thank God He allows glimpses and provides promise, into His realm, to keep us focused and motivated in our faithful pursuit.
