“All who live on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written since the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slaughtered” (Revelation 13:8).
How foolish humans are. We worship celebrities. We worship what we consider to be good things. We crawl on top of one another to be on top of the heap. What foolishness. Do not be fooled; the Lord is still Lord of all. Be humble and turn to Him and He will lift you up and out of the mire of this world. Seek the Lord while He may be found, and have your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
In what do you hope? Are you seeking to gain the whole world? Is it worth losing your soul? Are you seeking fame and a good reputation? Is it worth losing your soul? Many will disagree – and this will change nothing – but you were created for a purpose and your Creator has called you by name to abide in Him. Do not become caught up in the world’s game but live in the truth for all ages.
Lord, You have given me the gift of grace. In You I have hope for all my tomorrows. But the world has gone mad and I am often not even sure what is worth living for. Guide me in the way You have established so that I may now and always be led by the grace You gained for us on the cross. Lead me according to Your purposes in the truth You have revealed and grant that my hope will always be in You. Amen.
