In Balaam’s third oracle, God gave the diviner a vision of the future blessing that the Israelites would enjoy, and He warned Balak not to come against His people. The promise of blessing that God spoke through Balaam was a promise of abundant provision and powerful leadership. The warning that God gave Balak was a warning of destruction should he attempt to fight against Israel.
God’s promise of eternal life for us is a promise of shelter in His presence and provision that we will delight in (Rev. 7:15-16). We live in a broken world full of broken people, and we look forward to a life with God where brokenness will be no more. As we live today with this hope, we are called to proclaim the good news that Jesus has died on the cross for our sins. The hope that we have is not just for us. The message of the gospel is a message for all the world. God has saved us to display the immeasurable riches of His grace for the rest of eternity, and He calls us to start now by inviting those who don’t know Jesus to trust in Him and enjoy His presence and provision forevermore.
How will your guarantee of eternal life in Christ motivate you to share the gospel today?
