Fall In Love With Your Future 20.0: Consider Your Ultimate Future
Consider Your Ultimate Future
Fall In Love With Your Future 20.0
With chemical and nuclear weapons widespread today, with violent crime at an all time high, and with national debt towering over us, we sometimes wonder if we will be robbed of our future—or if our children will.
But alarming political, financial, and criminal developments aren’t the only threats to our future. Heartaches like cancer, the loss of a job, or the death of someone we love can make the future look bleak—the future in this world. However, our greatest future is yet to come.
At the center of this new future is what the corporate world might call a Turnaround Specialist. Many rate him the best CEO the world has ever known. In describing this manager’s style, noted author and business consultant Laurie Beth Jones says, “If you trace the results of [His] energy…, everything bloomed, was healed, or came to life in his presence.” He’s unique in that his awesome results are never at the expense of individuals. He’s a servant leader who cares deeply about each person and invites all to call him by his first name…Jesus.
When He reverses one of our losses or miraculously brings peace into the depth of a personal sorrow, He’s demonstrating small glimpses of what Heaven will be like in His Father’s presence—wrongs will be righted, hurts healed, and intimacy restored. Joy will be boundless in every way imaginable! Jesus invites all to know Him, learn His ways, and come under His leadership. Those who accept His offer can look forward to the future for which we were all created—an eternal face-to-face relationship with the Specialist of our souls.
When we receive and embrace this magnificent future, we begin to see how temporary our current challenge are, and we can more easily focus on maximizing the time and talents God has given us for this short life.
“My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, except to always be ready, no matter when it may overtake me.” General Stonewall Jackson
