Devotion for Monday after the Third Sunday in Advent

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
     The scepter of your kingdom 
     is a scepter of uprightness. 
~ Psalm 45:6

Forever and ever. We say those words, but I can’t really comprehend them. Time in this world is finite. We measure the days, weeks, months, and years, and we know that at some point our life here will end. But if we love and trust fully in Jesus, we will be with Him for eternity. Time will never end. No one will get old and die; no babies will be killed in the womb; no one will end their life in an accident. And the ruler of the eternal kingdom will wield a scepter of uprightness. On this earth, no one is good—not one. But in God’s eternal kingdom, righteousness will rule.

Eternal, everlasting God, sometimes time seems to move so slow; other times it seems to move so fast. In this life, time will end. I look forward to an eternity of uprightness under Your rule. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Note: These devotions are also available in print and e-reader formats.

All author proceeds from the devotionals will be donated to Love for the Least. The mission of L4L is to share the compassion of Christ with an unreached world. Currently they are providing food, mattresses, milk and diapers for babies, and other needs for refugees from ISIS in northern Iraq.
