The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming–not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. Hebrews 10:1 NIV
Morning came, and with it, the children also stumbled into their parent´s room. Sleep filled everyone´s eyes, but a few more minutes in bed was not an option. The kids wanted to go downstairs and see what good things there were under the tree and the fireplace. But they had to wait. Daddy needed to go and check that there were no reindeer, elves, camels, or wise-men still in the living room to be startled. Everyone already knew that he just needed time to open the blinds and turn on lights so that he could get the experience on camera. But they begged and pleaded for him to hurry while obeying the routine. Have we got any idea of the good things that are coming to those of us who wait for the Lord?
Worshipping God here on earth can be one of the loftiest pursuits we can experience. As we come to an awareness of the presence of the Lord, wonder and reverence can sweep over u!. Awe may strike us as we near the presence of the Divine! All that led up to our conversion, and our coming to know Christ, may be marvelous experiences. But glorious treasures still lie ahead. As we draw nearer to God and come to know Jesus more, each new discovery will surpass the former ones! The shadows will give way to greater revelations. Shall we seek our Father today and beg to be shown what good is coming to us as we move closer to Him in Spirit?
Thank You for the joys we experience as we come to know You more! Thrill us with ever more amazing discoveries each day and prepare us for the endless ones to come, we pray!
