What This Means for Your Future

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16
What This Means for Your Future Book Cover

Christ died for us.

Christ died for us because we are in desperate need of a savior.

Because we cannot save ourselves.

We cannot save ourselves from the ravaging curse that is sin.

Sin brings death and enslavement and has us constantly looking in the mirror, seeing our wretchedness, asking ourselves, “Why did I do that?”

But Christ has come for freedom, to set us free from the yoke of sin’s slavery so that we may have life and have it abundantly (Galatians 5).

Jesus died for us.

what does this all mean?

Christ makes us new and gives us the Holy Spirit as our helper so we can rest in who we are in Christ. Jesus says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). We can experience new life—here, now, and forever.

Yes, sin is at work in the world. It has wrecked humankind and it has also wrecked the world around us. Paul says in his letter to the Romans that “creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from the bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now” (Romans 8:19–22).

But the Spirit is also at work in the world. A day is coming where sin will be no more. Where all the old will pass away and everything will be made new. Where those who were made new in Christ will reign with the Lord and bask in the glory of his presence and enjoy the perfection of a divine eternity. That day is coming. And God wants to extend the invitation to us to join him for that day. By his grace, God has made salvation available to all humankind. And with open arms he’s asking us to receive it.

I have started posting scripture around my house and life verses on note section of my phone. I have these scriptures surrounding me so when life gets hard, overwhelming, devastating events happen or I just get too busy, I can quickly look and refocus myself on the promises of God. The truths of his word. I’m trying to become better at memorizing his word and having them in my mind and heart but it’s a process. Daily time with God in the morning and before I go to bed helps me start my day and end my day with peace and comfort. God reminds me that this is not my eternal home but a place I’m passing through on my way home and that I need to bring as many people along with me as possible. I think of it as a caravan to God.

I listen to christian music and keep The Word available to read or listen to.It is only God that can calm me.

For sure this is a challenge but nothing gives me perspective quite like God’s word. Weaving intentional dialogue in to my daily conversations and carving out a bit of time to reflect in gratitude of how the Lord is using things in my life tend to help.

#1. Be in constant prayer. #2. Confess as I see what I have done. #3. Remind myself of the Grace from God. #4. Repeat steps 1 – 4.

I like to start each day by praising God. I especially enjoy being in nature so I try to go for a walk and Thank God for the beauty of this creation.
