Vested Interest

In marriage, we work out disagreements and forgive wrongs, even perpetual ones, because we have a covenant in marriage, we have history, we have children, we have a shared home, we have God as our head, we are vested. Any relationship with history is a vested relationship. We share something, have a tangible reason to be together in spirit. People in war together have this strongly because the common history is deeply powerful and meaningful. As Christians, we have that same vested interest, only with more at stake… our eternity. It is easy to think of the now, but history is a bond and tangible memory and purposeful commitment to remind us of our bond. And Jesus invested in us with great suffering and His blood, even death, before He resurrected (praise God!). He has a vested interest in us and we in Him. It amazes me how people are so apt to accept every stupid thought in the world except Jesus, the only way to be saved for eternity. But He is the only Savior vested in us and that is where our loyalties should continually lie. ❤❤❤
