Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 30 January 2020

The End

“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.”
(1 Corinthians 15:21-28)

Today’s Morsel:  They say that all good things must come to an end.  You can sit and watch a good movie, but it will come to an end.  Or maybe read a good book, but it too will come to an end.  You may be enjoying a good career or a good job, but someday it will come to an end.  When God created the heavens and the earth and man, everything was good.  But it all has an end.  No matter how good my life may be, someday it’s going to come to an end, and I need to settle that in my mind. Nothing here on this earth lasts forever no matter how good it is.  Writing to the church at Corinth, Paul tells them that death has an end.  One day, this world and Satan will come to an end, and Jesus will be seen on His throne as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Sing: Oh, my brother are you ready for the call?  To crown your savior King and Lord of all?  The kingdoms of this world shall soon before Him fall, we shall see the King when He comes.
We shall see the King, we shall see the King, we shall see the King when He comes.  He’s coming in His power, we’ll hail the blessed hour.  We shall see the King when He comes.

Thought For Today:  The end may be tomorrow.
