Living In The Future

When we know Jesus we live with complete confidence.  Jesus will restore everything that is broken, all that has been lost, joy and laughter will reign.  Just as Jesus has been raised, we shall be too.  Oh what a day that will be!

I can, therefore, live with deprivation and loss.  I can confidently live forward.  I can live without regret and without fear, knowing that Jesus will make everything right and good.

This is the good news we have to share with the world.  The Holy Spirit comes upon us so we can experience some of the future in this world, in our caring and fearless relationships with one another.  The Holy Spirit spurs us on, pushing and leading us to be representatives of God's future now, standing against the destructive and short-sighted ways that we human beings try to make ourselves comfortable while caring less for others, sending us to seek and save the lost in Jesus' name.

Let's live in that future today.
