In the End, God Wins

In review of Matthew 24:14 it says, “The Good News about God’s kingdom will be preached in all the world, to every nation. Then the end will come.”

Bottom Line:
The Good News about the kingdom will be preached to the whole world, so that all will hear it. Then the end will come.

What this means to me:
The end will not come until the Good News about the kingdom has been preached and heard by the whole world.

God’s Word tells me how it’s going to end. One day God’s going to wrap it all up here on Earth, and he’s going to take his children home to Heaven to be with him forever. The Bible says, “The Good News about God’s kingdom will be preached in all the world, to every nation. Then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14 NCV).

The goal is not to set up a kingdom here on Earth. Rather I should help populate the Kingdom of Heaven. My desire should be to take all of my friends and everybody else with me. The goal should be to get people in the Kingdom of Heaven so they can be with God for eternity.

It’s all about the glory of God. God gets glory when I love him with all my heart. God gets glory when I love other people in the family of God. God gets glory when I love the people who are unlovable. God gets glory when I share the Good News with everybody. God gets glory when I trust him with problems in my life that cannot be solved except through a miracle. And God gets glory when I know and trust that the end is inevitable and that God wins.

So today I pray, “Jesus, I want to be a part of what you’re doing in the world. I believe you want to use me. I want to return to my first love, you. I want to be your hands and feet in the this world. Help me to believe and live by my convictions.”
