Scripture for Today

Revelation 14:13 I heard a voice out of Heaven, "Write this: Blessed are those who die in the Master from now on; how blessed to die that way!"
"Yes," says the Spirit, "and blessed rest from their hard, hard work. None of what they've done is wasted; God blesses them for it all in the end." (Msg)


Paul Gauguin is the famous French artist of the late 19th century. A sailor, then a stockbroker, in 1885 Gauguin left his wife and five children to take up life as an artist. He spent much time overseas, before spending his final years in poverty, disease and despair in Tahiti. So deep was his despair that in 1897 Gaugin attempted suicide. He failed and lived for another five years. It was during this time in Tahiti that Gauguin painted his masterpiece, a three paneled work entitled “Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?” The first panel shows three women and a child, representing the beginning of life – “Where do we come from?”. The middle panel shows the daily existence of young adults – “What are we?”. The third panel shows an old woman approaching death – “Where are we going?”

The three questions are written in small print in the bottom corner of the painting. They are the questions Gauguin wished to answer, the universal human questions of us all: “Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?”

This devotional is to answer the last question. We are going to rest. I say we because I believe you are born again and so am I. If you haven't made the most important decision, bow down your head and say a little prayer "Jesus come into my life and be my Lord and personal savior". You have just made the best decision of your life.

We as believers have a common eternity. We are going to heaven so why should we kill ourselves over the short and temporary stay here. It is a great treasure dying in the Lord. Even in death or in life we live to glorify the Lord. Let's understand we have a short stay here on earth and definitely we will give account for everything we have done. We will also rest from this earths trials and temptations. I personally am looking forward to spending my time with my maker in eternity.

Where do you want to be?

Prayer: Father, I give you my life, my love and my all.
