With the state of the world today, it’s easy to lose hope. But that’s only true if your hope is in the wrong place. If you were looking for hope in the life you thought you’d have, you may be out of luck for a while. But that’s not where we should place our hope. We suffer from a misplaced hope if our hope is not in Jesus. He is our true hope because we know how the story ends.
We know nothing will ever defeat His Church. What we need to do is take a long view of things. What we do today can be helpful for other Christians 200 years from now. It’s not about our lives right now. As people who are always looking forward to the return of Jesus, we should also be always working for the future of His Kingdom, not ours.
