The Best Ending is a Glorious Beginning

They say everyone loves a tragedy, a Romeo and Juliet kind of tale. I guess I'm not everyone. I hate a tragedy. I want the happy ending. Every time.

We are all born into a great tragedy that began at the fall in the garden of Eden where we, who were created for fellowship with God and for His glory, are separated from Him. Our lives are full of all the elements we find in the great tragedies: love, hate, joy, sorrow, desire, rejection, success, failure, etc., and woven through all our experiences is futility and hopelessness.

Every chapter of our lives is driving us closer to our common end: eternal death, separation, and suffering in Hell. Tragic! Tragic! Tragic!

But, wait, there is another thread woven through humanity's tragic tale. A thread of hope, born of a promise: the God who made us would rescue us.

At just the right moment in the story, God sends His only begotten Son, the God-Man, Jesus Christ, to save His people from their sins, to rewrite their story, to redeem every element, every chapter, and to give their story a happy ending.

Jesus is the Hero that enters our tragic tale and saves the day. He left His kingdom of glory and humbled Himself, taking on human flesh and being born of a virgin. He lived the sinless life we couldn't, then died the death we should have, and just when all seems lost, He rises from the grave victorious, the first of the resurrected dead, securing forever the future of those who place their faith in Him.

Through Christ, death and separation will never have the last word in our story again.

Although He has returned to His kingdom for a time, He did not leave us without a Helper, but sent the Holy Spirit, that through His power we would live our lives worthy of our Hero and tell many of Him so that their tragic stories might be redeemed and have a happy ending as well.

Jesus Christ is coming back again. He has promised. And He who was faithful to keep His promise to come, will be faithful to keep His promise to return. And when He does, it will be to reign as King.

For those who place their faith in Christ, their story no longer bears the sad words, "The End:" the end of this life and the beginning of eternal death, separation, and suffering in Hell.

Instead, the words for those in Christ will be as those in Matthew 25:34, "Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.'"

Now that is a happy ending. An ending that is really a glorious beginning. And aren't those the happiest endings of all?

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
