Spend five minutes focusing on a couple of things you appreciate and thank God for them.
Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit,[a] with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
3 No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. 4 And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. 5 And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever. (NLT)
When Jesus tells us to join him (“take my yoke”), we know we are living our lives with him working through us when we are joyful, kind, gentle…
So, when he says we will work with him and reign with him for eternity, we get a clue about eternal life being more than sitting around, relaxing, and getting lots of rest. There are things we will be doing together.
We can do many things in our lives where it is not necessary to receive supernatural help. What are you doing right now that you couldn’t do unless Jesus was there with you? Think about those things and if there isn’t anything you can think of, think about what that might mean.
