We Have Hope

Followers of Jesus are living for more than this life. We have a hope beyond the seventy or eighty years we get on this planet. We are living for the billions of years we will live in Heaven with Christ. Proverbs says that we should neither be afraid of those who seek to do us harm nor should we be jealous of those on whom God’s judgment will fall. Proverbs 24 says:

Do not fret because of evildoers
or be envious of the wicked,

20 for the evildoer has no future hope,
    and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out. – Proverbs 24:19-20 (NIV)

There’s no reason to be afraid because we’ve got nothing to lose. No matter what persecution may come, our hope is in Heaven. No matter how the wicked may prosper in this life, they have no hope of eternity. Don’t worry about the temporary pain or difficult circumstances of this life. Instead, keep your eyes on Heaven. Heaven awaits and the One who waits for us there keeps His promises.
