Daily Reading – Daniel 7-8 / 1 John 3
Daniel 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
OK, let’s just get it out there. The bold honest truth. I’m not the most athletic guy God ever created. OK, I said it. However, I, and most everyone I grew up with, have known this for years. Whenever people were picking teams, I was not normally the first one chosen. Oh, I jumped around yelling; “Pick Me,… Pick Me,” just like all the other kids. Yet the cold hard fact was, I wasn’t anyone’s first choice to help win a game. I wasn’t picked last, but I wasn’t chosen first either. I often thought, it would be nice, just once, if I could choose what team to be on instead of someone else choosing for me. To look over both teams, judge the players on each team, and then I would choose who to play with. I could pick me to be a part of the winning team. Sound like some sort of fairy tale dream? It’s not.
In the most important competition that will ever take place, you and I have the choice of which team to be a part of. In the final battle between Christ and the Devil and his followers we are told who wins. Here in Daniel 7:14 it says of Christ. “And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” He wins and You get to choose which side you will be on.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
There is a catch. You have to choose before you die. You have all the facts written down for you in God’s Word. It has always been completely accurate about everything. So the choice is yours to make.
If you haven’t already,
why not choose the right team today?
