5/17 Immortality

Rom 2:7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.

Persistence is simply working hard and not quitting. You persist in doing good. This is no small undertaking given the adversity that surrounds you with life: Family, work, church and your neighborhood. These all give great opportunity to exercise doing good.

Interesting that this is your pursuit. This is not ordinary but supernatural. You are after the very best. Not the best of this world but the best ultimately. That extreme best is by God. What could be better than that which he has in store for you? You seek honor, glory, and immortality. Eternal life!

You desire to be recognized by God. You want his esteem and nothing else is high enough. All other worldly honor and glory pales to you.

You pursue eternal life, an immortal body and eternal pleasures. Only this will satiate you. Nothing less is good enough for you and your high tastes.

You are promised eternal life. He will give you what you pursue because he has called you to this in your Christ like nature. This is your true exhibition of faith.
