Luke 20:41-44

41 Jesus said to them, “Why do people say that the Messiah is the son of David? 42 David himself says in the Book of Psalms, “ ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand 43 until I put your enemies under your control.” ’ (Psalm 110:1) 44 David calls him ‘Lord.’ So how can he be David’s son?”

One day I’ll see Jesus. I mean really see Him – face to face. I know where He’ll be; God the Father will be on His Glorious throne – I’ll look to the left and I’ll see Him in the flesh. His hands, His feet brutally scarred but His welcoming smile unmistakeable. I know the Holy Spirit will be there – siding up next to me like He always has – my advocate. What a reunion that will be! All pain will be gone. All the confusion and doubt and fear and insecurity will just evaporate. I’ll be with Him!

David kept this picture in the front of his mind and recorded it in Psalm 110:1. He knew there was more to this life. There was a higher purpose and greater thought than just living for myself. I wonder if I’d do life differently if I constantly lived in the light of one day seeing Jesus at God’s right hand?
