Do you sometimes wonder if the world is beyond salvation? Do you look around at the corruption of mankind and see signs of the end times? Sometimes, I do. Sometimes I find myself wondering if it wouldn’t be perfectly convenient for Christ to return today. Of course, many of my fellow Christians have tried for the last 2,000 years to predict when this will occur even though we know it is not for us to know. Since we cannot know, we must live in this world. Today is another day and, God willing, the sun will rise tomorrow.
When I opened my Bible today, I hoped that God would put something uplifting and encouraging in front of me. I prayed for a positive message – perhaps something I could share as good news. Of course, the message of the Gospel is Good News, but what about the rest? First, my “Bible” is actually an iPad and my present choice for reading is the HCSB Study Bible app. Long ago, I set up one of the daily reading plans.
