Christianity Is . . . About Time

Does the future make you nervous?

We all have felt the tremors of nervous fear, thinking about our tomorrows:  how we will do on a test; how our children will turn out; whether we will keep our job; whether our house will sell; whether we will make ends meet.

We fear tomorrow because tomorrow is uncertain. Time passes with regularity, yet time so often surprises.

A man long ago, facing a seemingly uncertain future, said, “I trust in you, O Lord; I say, ‘You are my God.’ My times are in your hands” (Psalm 31:14,15).

God knows our tomorrows. He knows them perfectly.

Would you be interested in knowing what God has in mind for your future? There are some pretty important things to know, especially if you are to be ready for your future.

You want to be able to face the future with zero fear, and with all confidence. You want to know and believe God’s promise: “‘I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'” (Jeremiah 29:11).

Would you like a future like that?

Make it a point to be in God’s house every Sunday, and you’ll find certainty for an uncertain future.

Christianity is about time.
