As is the case with most people I am committed to getting up, be it in the morning or what ever time of day it might be and go to work. For the majority of us it will be a full time commitment. The definition of full time will of course vary from place to place.
Day after day it seems we continue to keep pressing on. And then finally on that fateful day, we get paid. Perhaps not as much as we would like but we do get paid none the less.
Speaking for myself, my routine is I would image similar to most people. I figure out what to pay out via bills and expenses and then hopefully I am looking at what I can save and put away.
When I do figure out what it is that I can save via a savings account or which ever option is available to me I always want to know one thing in particular. Is my money that I am giving to you, does it come with a guarantee? I want to have the assurance that when I need my money will it be there for me. Can I when it’s all said and done count on you?
These days if the truth were to be told are days where not much of anything can be guaranteed. Yes my bank does indeed make a promise for my money being there, but it is not an iron clad guarantee.
This life that we are living finds each of us looking for guarantees. Guarantees that will provide us with a sense of peace and as well with a measure of assurance.
But if we are honest about it nothing in this world that we live in is capable of providing us with guarantees that are absolute. Each of us at some point in our lives have found that something or someone that we counted on that perhaps we saw as being 100% assured, untimely failed to live up to our expectations. These disappointments are not unique to any one person, but surely have been experienced by all of us.
This journey of life has never been easy. It will come with both the good as well as the bad. But as Christians while traveling this road called life we do so knowing that we have a guarantee that is solid as a rock. In fact our guarantee is with that rock of ages. For as we find in Ephesian 1-13-14 we know that for those who are included in Christ, who have heard the message of truth, we will receive the gospel of our salvation. For as believers we are marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
Satisfaction guaranteed. Nothing else in this life that we are living can compare to the guarantee we have as believers. It is 100 % assured for each of us, it is unbreakable and will never disappoint us. What better guarantee as Christians and as a part of the body of Christ could we ever hope for.
To God Be The Glory
