“…if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.”
(1 Corinthians 15:19 NLT)
We talk a lot about what God has done and what He is doing, and rightly so. But how often do we talk about what He’s going to do – in eternity? What if we were more conscious of the age to come – thinking about it, talking about it, praying about it, singing about it?
To help us “fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen” (2 Corinthians 4:18 NLT), we are going to hear seven sermons (starting next week) based on Bible passages which talk about our future hope. We won’t try to answer every question about the ins and outs of the events surrounding Jesus’ second coming. Rather, the aim of this teaching series is that by looking at the future we will all have more joy, perseverance, obedience and hope. Our discipleship should be significantly affected by what we believe about the future – our worship, our decisions, our sacrifices and our feelings being shaped by the amazing promises God has made to us.
“I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, ‘Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.’”
(Revelation 21:3-4 NLT)
