Daily devotional: This world will end

Scripture
The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.”
Revelation 11:15 NIV

Observation
This world will end. Things will not just go on forever and ever the way they are now. God will establish an eternal kingdom, and Jesus will judge all who have ever lived on the earth.

Application
Live therefore with the end in mind. Do not live for today, but for eternity. Have priorities that reflect the eternal reality.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for revealing yourself to us in Your Word. Thank you for showing us what is to come. Help me to live in such a way that I bring You glory. Help me not to put trust in wealth or abilities but in You. Help me not to value material things but to value You and others. Grow my love and passion for people, and help me to be passionate about what You are passionate about. I love you, Lord!
