Joni And Friends 5 May 2022 Daily Devotional | More of Heaven

Read and Meditate on Today’s Joni And Friends Daily Devotional for Thursday 5th May 2022 written by Joni Eareckson-Tada. God bless you as you study God’s Word!



Scripture: “When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’” – 1 Corinthians 15:54

Suffering gets us ready for the resurrection.

Broken necks, broken homes, and broken hearts crush our hopes that earthly things can satisfy. Only the promise of immortality can truly move our eyes from this world. The glorious day when “death will be swallowed up in victory” becomes our passion as we realize, once and for all, that earth can never meet our deepest longings.

Suffering also prepares us to meet God when we get to heaven. Suppose you never knew pain. No stained reputation. No bruised feelings. No sore back, twisted ankle, or decayed molars. How could you appreciate the scarred hands with which Christ will greet you? What if no one had ever offended you deeply? How could you adequately express your gratitude when you approach the Man of Sorrows, who was acquainted with grief?

When you meet Jesus face-to-face, your hardships will have given you a taste of what He went through to purchase the promise of your resurrection. And your loyalty to Him in your sufferings will give you something concrete to offer in return. For what other proof could you bring of your love if this life left you totally unscarred?

I praise you, Sovereign Lord, that You use suffering to prepare me for heaven. Help me to live today with the promise of the resurrection before me, giving me a reason to thank You in the midst of my pain. Keep me from complaining and grumbling. For on the day that I stand before Jesus, I want to offer Him proof of my love and faithfulness.
