Daughters of the King


We won't be here on earth forever. This is not our home.

It's almost overwhelming every time I think about it. Earth isn't our home! Earth can be a tough place to live at times, especially if you are a Christian. But if you think about it, our time on earth is so brief compared to eternity. The trials that we face here are nothing compared to the glory we will experience in heaven. If we are truly a daughter of the King, we will spend eternity with God our Heavenly Father.

So what are we to do while on earth? I think our purpose is to first and foremost bring glory to God...to make our life count for something that really matters. He is the one who gave us life, it should be all His! People are watching. If we profess to be a Christian, yet live like the world, people will wonder what the use of being a Christian is. Yet, even if someone doesn't know where we stand yet they see us living differently than the world, set apart for God, they will start to wonder what makes us different! The way we live our life does matter! In the end it won't matter whether you were popular, had a lot of money, or were a professional at something. The only thing that will matter is how you lived your life.

Our God's love is so amazing! That He would send His only Son, His perfect Son, to die for my sins...it's the best example of love there is. If we accept this gift and surrender our lives fully unto Him, we become a daughter of the King and can be sure that we will live with Him for eternity. The sad thing is, so many people think they can do it on their own. They say that they don't need a Savior, and that they can get to heaven just by being good and trying hard enough. So many miss out on the gift God has extended to us!

When you are gone, what will people say about you? Will they have seen Jesus through you? As daughters of the King, we have the opportunity to make a difference for Christ. We have the chance to be a light in this dark world. We need to remember to live, not for this life, but for the life that is to come.When we die, that's all that will matter. 

Just remember that this is not our home. You only have one life on this earth...make it count!
