Day 13: Life's Dress Rehearsal


LIFE IS NOT A DRESS REHEARSAL!

As I thought about these words

I believe the opposite

that

LIFE IS A DRESS REHEARSAL.

Think about it.

DRESS REHEARSAL is defined as

PRACTICE~

"Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the GOD of peace will be with you" (Philippians 4:9)

And as a

TRIAL RUN~

"Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the LORD has promised to those who love HIM" (James 1:12)

or as

Merriam~Webster defines it~

"the final rehearsal of a live show,

in which everything is done as it would be in a real performance"

Hmm.

So maybe, just maybe

LIFE IS A DRESS REHEARSAL

because there is so much more

beyond what our eyes can see

in the here and now

as

the here and now is not the

real performance

because~

"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a SAVIOR from there, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who, by the power that enables HIM to bring everything under HIS control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like HIS glorious body" (Philippians 3:20-21)

Therefore

let's make this the best

DRESS REHEARSAL

and

"Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,

fixing our eyes on JESUS, the pioneer and perfecter of faith" (Hebrews 12:1-2)

So we can

Enjoy the REAL SHOW~

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith" (2 Timothy 2:7)
