What is to come is something very important to each one of us. In fact you could argue that the prospect of tomorrow informs much of our living today. 

What is to come is something very important to each one of us. In fact you could argue that the prospect of tomorrow informs much of our living today.

We set in motion contingency plans to be well prepared for unforeseen eventualities, we draw up bucket lists of the things we want to accomplish or experience, we make financial investments in the hope of high yield returns, we commit to study hard so we’ll be all set for the big exam to come, and we train our bodies so that we can do our team proud when the day of competition finally arrives. 

We are far more forward-looking in our actions and priorities than we perhaps realize. The prospect of the future (whatever we think it holds) is what helps us make sense of our past; it influences many of the decisions we make, and priorities we adopt here in the present. 

But have you ever thought about ultimate future things? Do you ever take time to consider the bigger story that God is unfolding all around us?
