I recently visited Japan. Because of my Japanese descent, I always wondered if I would find a connection to my cultural heritage? After a week long visit, I can unequivocally state that a connection has been made. The Japanese people are known for their attention to detail, their politeness, and their deeply ingrained sense of humility. All of these traits deeply resonated with me during the visit. I saw myself in the Japanese people. All during the trip, I proudly proclaimed, to the chagrin of my family, “I’m with my peeps!”
And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!”
I look forward to the day when I am in Heaven, before God. But it will be more than just a deep resonation; I will be worshipping and serving Him in the way I was created to be. And I will be worshipping with other believers who have trusted God with their eternal destinies. I will truly be with my peeps!
If you have confessed your sins, repented, and accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can join the family of God. You can experience forgiveness and peace. And you can be with your peeps for all eternity. Your heritage will not be determined by genetics but by God’s sovereign choice by His mercy and grace.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
