Current Study: "VICTORY" 

    The days of "not yet."

     Those of us who follow Christ live in an uncomfortable reality.  God has given us great promises in Christ Jesus, but we've not yet experienced them all.

  • Christ has promised He would return--but not yet.
  • Jesus will ultimately make everything right--but not yet.
  • Christ has promised to redeem our lives and welcome us into His glorious kingdom--but not yet.

     As we live in this "in between" reality of life, it's easy to forget the story--God's great story of redemption--has a happy ending.  Whenever we read the headlines or watch the news on TV, we sometimes wonder how things will turn out.  We forget the war already has been won.  The future isn't in doubt.

     We can live in our present circumstances--whatever they are--with a joyful confidence knowing Christ has already secured our victory.  We can have courage in our obedience, enthusiasm in our evangelism, mercy in our forgiveness, and determination in our discipleship.

     We can live with joy because we have victory.  We are confident Jesus will finish what He has started in the whole world--and in us.

We don't just live; we thrive!
