The Future Starts Now!
Today’s Scripture: “What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now!” 1 Peter 1:3-4 (The Message).
When Jesus came to earth He brought heaven with Him. His mission was thereby half completed. When he died on the cross and rose from the dead, He finished the job and reconciled earth with Heaven. Mission accomplished!
This Good News, called in a more formal tongue The Gospel, has been preserved by God through the ages and preached in every nook and cranny throughout our world. Some believe; some do not. Where do you stand?
For those who do believe — the future starts now.
The same Jesus who brought heaven to earth, and then reconciled us to God, now brings heaven into your life. And as a result, even though your feet are yet firmly planted upon the ground, your spirit soars to heights of glory as you hear God’s voice, see His wonders, learn His Word, experience His power, and fulfill His purposes in your life.
So, what are you waiting for? The future starts NOW!
