The Promises

There is a famous line in one of Paul's epistles that I love. Paul says to the Corinthians, "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable" (1 Corinthians 15:19).

Remembering this should infuse all of us with encouragement and faith. What Paul is saying is that if we are only looking to Christ as someone to help us through this life, we miss the best part of Christ's message. There is so much more than just this life and Christ will continue to bless, heal, provide and help us not only now but forever.

Because of Christ we will be resurrected and live forever. Because of Christ many blessings we could not have in this life will be given to us in the next life. Because of Christ everything will eventually be made absolute fair and wonderful. So if we are only thinking in terms of this life it is easy to get discouraged. Instead we need to realize that Christ's power and promises don't have boundaries of time. The best is yet to come!
