Day 30 In Him we find...

 
Wow- I can't believe it's been 30 days already!! Thank you so much for following along with me in my first series! I hope it has been a blessing for you, as much as it has been for me! I had been praying about this series a few months before I decided to do it and I even wrote out the 30 topics before hand. Guess what?! I didn't even use all the topics I had planned. God revealed to me so much more. That's how awesome He is!
 
Before I reveal to you the last topic, I figured I would do our last, final recap of what we've found in Him:
 
Last, but not least...
*drum roll please*
 
In Him we find eternal life when we believe in the truth that He sent His one and only perfect son, Jesus Christ, to suffer and die on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead three days later to prove that death has not overcome.
 
When we believe in that truth, we are saved from condemnation in hell. We are given the most precious gift of eternal life with Him in heaven. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." When we die, it is not a time of sorrow, but a time of celebration. We get to spend eternity with Jesus in paradise. Revelation 21:4 says, "and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away." We don't deserve it, that's for sure, but He has given it to us anyway, as a gift if we accept it.
 
Ephesians 2:4-10 says it beautifully, "But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them."
 
There is absolutely no one else who can give you the gift of eternal life. Don't even try looking elsewhere, because you won't find it. It is the most amazing gift you can and will ever recieve. It's better than your dream car, dream house, and whatever else that you dream of, because guess what? Those things don't last forever, but when you believe in Jesus, you will spend forever with Him. We can't even measure eternity, because it goes on and on and on and on and on....etc...you get the picture. 1 John 2:17 says, "The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever." Nothing gets better than that. I always hear young people say, "I wanna live forever!" Well, that isn't gonna happen without a relationship with Jesus Christ.
 
In Him we find eternal life.
 
Just because this series is over now, doesn't mean that these are the only things that we find in Him. The list continues. He has many wonderful characteristics that my 30 day blog series could not cover. I hope my series was just a snapshot of a few of the amazing things we find in Him. I pray that you continue to find more in Him and praise Him for who He is. If you have any questions or prayer requests, please let me know either by comment or email!
