1 Peter 5:10
“But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.” (NKJV)
“In His kindness God called you to share in His eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, He will restore, support, and strengthen you, and He will place you on a firm foundation.” (NLT)
He wants us to SHARE in His ETERNAL GLORY. Can you even grasp what that means? God- so perfect in all His ways, wants to share with us His magnificence!
Jesus has given us passage to be with Him here and now through His perfect and selfless sacrifice on the cross. Our suffering is so short compared to the eternal glory we get to experience with Him.
Thank you Lord for all the amazing things you are doing in my life, continue to give me opportunities to grow- I want to be more like you!
