He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:8
04/09/09 I learned something while studying this verse today. The Greek word for “end” is telos. It means “termination, the limit at which a thing ceases to be (always of the end of some act or state, but not of the end of a period of time), eternal”. WOW! This definition teaches me that the Lord strengthens my participation in His plan even after my death. God will use what He has called me to do until His plan is fulfilled at the end of time and possibly beyond. The description of the New Jerusalem in Revelation shows that the very architecture of our heavenly home is built upon God’s people. Their involvement in God’s plan is eternal. So is ours! Hallelujah! After all, I’m a Christian, and I assume you are, too, if you’re reading this. That means that the message of the 12 apostles reached you! Their legacy lives on. What legacy is God building from you?
