We Know How The Story Ends
By Mark Finley
One of the major reasons we don’t have to ever live in fear, consumed with worry and anxiety is because we know how the story ends. We know that sickness will not have the last word: Christ will. We know the coronavirus, or any other virus, natural disaster, calamity or nuclear war will not destroy all life on planet Earth. We have the promise of Jesus return. We see famines. We see earthquakes. We see distress of nations. We see the rise of a possible nuclear war. We see the potential of nuclear disaster. We see climate change. We see pestilences taking the lives of thousands.
We see these things, but we have a hope that enables us to thrive in life’s toughest times. There is a sense of confidence that takes us through because we’ve read the last chapters of the Bible. We know how the story ends. In Revelation 21 verses 4 and 5, John writes, “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, and there shall be no more pain, for the former things are passed away. Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold I make all things new.”
Along with the apostle Paul we “are looking for the blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ.”(Titus 2:13)
We are Adventists and have not forgotten our heritage. Christ is coming again and coming soon. If we ever lose our vision of the coming of Christ, we will lose our hope. We are Adventists. We look beyond what is, to what will be. We look beyond today to tomorrow. We look beyond sickness to health. We look beyond the pestilences that are carried through the air to the pure air where there will be no more pestilences … Click Here to Read the Rest of This DevotionalFull Devotional & All Prayer Requests for This WeekSpanish, French, Portuguese and Other LanguagesShareTweetForwardFeatured Book of the WeekMaking Friends for God
by Mark Finley
Join evangelist Mark Finley on a journey 53 years in the making. In Making Friends for God, you’ll travel in the footsteps of Jesus and discover the universal principles of sharing our faith.
Evangelism isn’t just for TV preachers and the ultra-religious. In fact, simply sharing about our personal experience with God is the essence of a living faith. When we come to Christ and are changed by His grace, charmed by His love, and redeemed by His power, we cannot be silent.Additional Reading: “The Controversy Ended” by Ellen G.
