Anticipation
by Dr. David Jeremiah
 
 
 
“So that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.” (Hebrews 6:18)
 
Psychologists tell us that anticipation is an emotion with marvelous healing powers. People who are snowbound sustain their spirits by anticipating the longer days of spring and summer. Couples who are separated by military deployment stay sane by anticipating their reunion. Students anticipate the end of the semester. Employees look forward to their vacations. Brides and grooms are eager for their wedding day.
   Can you imagine a world without anticipation? How would we feel with nothing to look forward to? Welcome to non-Christianity. Without Christ, there’s no ultimate anticipation. There may be momentary excitement, but lasting expectancy is missing. The future has no promise; it holds no hope. Everything will perish. For a non-Christian, death is the termination of any happiness that may be found on the earth. But for Christians, death brings us to the beginning of an eternity spent in heaven.
   Thank God we have a message of hope! Our joy is complete as we look to the future return of our Lord and to the mansions He is preparing for us. Let’s live in anticipation today!
