Sunday's Message
January 13, 2018

LOOK TO THE FUTURE

 

 

 

In the U.S. suicide is the tenth leading cause of death. In 2017 there were 47,173 suicides in America. There were 1,300,000 attempts! Hamlet famously said, “To be or not to be, that is the question.”

 

These people had lost hope for the future. A Christian should always have hope for the future. Sunday I’m preaching on “Look to the Future” from Hebrews 12:1-14. The writer was telling Jewish Christians to stay faithful to Christ in spite of hardship. They must keep their eyes on Jesus and endure discipline. The Lord disciplines those whom he loves so that they may grow into wonderful Christians for eternity. When we suffer we should not feel cursed by God but blessed. He only disciplines his children because only they have a glorious, meaningful future.

 

Our church was really blessed in 2018, but it also endured a lot of suffering through illnesses. Let’s look forward to the plans that God has for us in 2019. God’s statement through Jeremiah to suffering Judah holds true for us:

 

“I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11.

 

Let’s cling to that promise and look forward to 2019 and eternity! It’s going to be wonderful!

 

By the way, ladies, you should come to the Women’s Breakfast this Saturday at 8:30. It’s a great time of devotion, food and fellowship.

 

Love,

Dr. Jim Meek
