Our Past, Present, And Future In Christ

What is the best way to describe a believer’s past, present, and future?

Let me present the following for your serious thought and consideration –

(1). OUR PAST – We live our lives out of and based upon what Christ our Lord and Savior has already accomplished for us in the past — “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world” (Galatians 6:14).

(2). OUR PRESENT – We live our daily lives laying “aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us,” running the race of grace “set before us,” “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:1-2).

(3). OUR FUTURE – We live in this world seeking to “live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;” in anticipation as we look “for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” (Titus 2:13).
