Why This is all So Worth it

I was thinking the other day about the things we are constantly barraged with in the media, the glitz and glamour of this world, and all the things that are so highly respected. Then I considered the promises of God to us, His children and I almost laughed out loud at how little this world understands. One of the promises the Lord has given us is that we will rule and reign with Jesus for a thousand years on this earth. Think about that for a moment. Someone like the president of the United States may have a political career that lands them at the peak of power for 8 years maximum. We will rule and reign with Jesus for 1000 years. Pretty incredible stuff. The other sweet thing about this whole deal is that when we are ruling, our Jesus will hold power with an iron fist, there will be no revolutions, no coups, no overthrows. Anyone who might think of doing such a thing will be overthrown and destroyed with such violence and certainty that its almost comical. Think about 1000 years man, its a long time. Compared to eternity its nothing however, we'll have a good full dose of ruling over this world before the Lord torches it and gives us something that's really worth having. The future is bright, and its right at our doorstep. Time is short, keep the faith.
