Is your life grounded in what really matters? As humans with finite perspectives, we are often troubled by the future. The events of today's world—global terrorism, economic fluctuations, war—certainly give ample opportunities for dreading what tomorrow might bring.
David Jeremiah, howeverm points out that Jesus never worried about the future but, instead, instructed His disciples to prepare for it. Jesus has told us to anticipate His return and to grasp a biblical understanding of eternity, so that we make intentional choices during the present age.
When we are unsure of how everything will work out for us, Dr. Jeremiah points out that Scripture calls us to rest in Jesus rather than worrying about the future. This involves being faithful with what Christ has given us, remembering our mission to be His witnesses, and building one another up. Dr. Jeremiah's words remind us that when we are seeking some sign of hope, our search is always satisfied when we discover and dedicate our attention to what really matters—a relationship with Jesus Christ.
