The Here and Now

We don’t know what tomorrow brings. We do know, as Christians, what we need to do until we go to live with our Heavenly Father.

1. Spread the word of God!

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-22 (NIV)

2. Love God, Love Each Other!

Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. " Matthew 22:36-39 (NIV)

3. Trust in God’s Timing! He knows best.

As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matthew 24: 3-8(NIV)

But (emphasis mine) about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." Matthew 24: 36 (NIV)
