Your Future Is Ahead Of You
By Frank Pollard
An exciting bit of Holy Scripture is Romans 1:16: " I am not
ashamed of the Gospel of Christ. It is the power of God unto salvation
to everyone that believes..." The gospel is your hope for rescue. It
will save you from the consequences of your own sins. It will save your
life. It will save you from purposelessness and boredom. The Bible
promises that all out committment to Jesus Christ will produce in your
life: "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control." (Gal. 5:22,23). Commiting life to
Jesus Christ is the best way to live.
Do you ever read graffitti? Hard to keep from reading it, isn't it?
Most of it is as filthy as the places it's found. But not all. Some
graffitti is progressive. That is, one will write a line and someone
elso will add a line in reply. For instance one wrote: "To be or not
to be." Shakespeare. Someone added under this: "To be is to do."
Paul Sarte. The next line said: "Do be do be do." Frank Sinatra. One
believer couldn't resist writing: "Neitze is dead," God.
Several years back a line on a wall declared: "Christ is the answer."
Underneath it a way wrote: "What is the question?" Someone else came
along and wrote another line: "Whatever the question, Christ is the answer."
That is true, my friend, what ever the question, whether it be of
life or death or eternity, Christ is the answer.
Paul knew that, by experience. Not in the excitement of a new found
faith but in the steady confidence of many years of experience he wrote:
"This one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what
is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has
called me heavenward in Christ Jesus," (Phil 3:13,14 NIV).
There Is No Future In The Past
Life is never found in looking back. The best living begins with
declaring: "IForgetting those things which are behind."
