God knows we are imperfect, and doesn't expect us to be perfect just yet. That should not prevent us from doing our best though.
I really want to be one of those who are living on earth when it is again a paradise, and free of all wickedness, forever.
This past week, we lost two friends to man's worst enemy, death, both in the same day. A couple of weeks ago, we lost another dear friend to Cancer.
These three people all had the same hope as do I. They are now resting, waiting for the resurrection promised in the writings in the Bible.
I look forward to the day when the dead are resurrected, just as God has promised, and that Jesus demonstrated was possible when he resurrected his dear friend, Lazarus, as well as several others while he was walking the earth as a perfect human.
These are the things he taught and and what he died for; So we may have a chance to live on this earth, without ever being sick, or in pain, or born with physical deformities. No more will mankind have to fear for his safety because of crime or war. For as Revelation 21:4 states: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning not outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Our heavenly Father, Jehovah God has promised this, and he cannot lie.
I am trying to be a "footstep follower" of Christ Jesus. The scriptures say that if we want to live on the earth when it is restored to the paradise condition it was before Adam and Eve sinned, we must do as Christ did, and follow his example as closely as we possible can.
