“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).
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.
Let me say it again. You can know God’s presence, sense His pleasure, love His people, serve His purpose, experience His power, receive His provision, and show forth His praises.
So, what are you waiting for? You have been given a brand-new life, and you now have everything to live for. Your future starts NOW!
