A Triumphant Entry Into God's Etenal Kingdom

“Look,” Stephen said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God” (Acts 7:56).
Immediately after this great  vision of his Saviour, Stephen prayed two prayers
- “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit” (Acts 7:59);
- “Lord, do not hold this sin against them” (Acts 7:60).
Stephen’s death wasn’t a sad exit from this world. It was a triumphant entry into God’s eternal Kingdom.
Through faith in Christ, we can die triumphantly.

For God so Loved the World

Life isn't easy. Sometimes, it seems like there are nothing but hard times.

2 Samuel 7:1-29 Life isn't easy. Sometimes, it seems like there are nothing but hard times. There doesn't seem to be alight at the end of the tunnel. That's the way it feels - but it's not the way it is! Our feelings will lead us away from You - if we let them! Our feelings can run riot over us. They can wreck our lives. Help us, Lord, to look beyond the chaos. Help us to look to You. Sometimes, it feels like You're far away. That's the way it seems to us - but it's not the way it really is! You are with us - now and always (Matthew 1:23; Matthew 28:20).
