The Best Is Yet to Come

In 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2, Paul asks for prayer - not for himself and his companions - but that the word of the Lord may have free course and be glorified. He prays that he might have the freedom to preach and teach the word of God, so that the word of God can do its work.

In Hebrews 4:12 we read that the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword . . .

Paul prays that this word might be released so that it does its dynamic, life-changing work in the lives of others.

He knows that its is not his preaching and teaching that changes lives. It is the word of God.

People need to hear or read the word of God. And when they do so with open hearts and minds, by the grace of God, they will be changed. They will begin to understand who God is and what He has done, They will begin to understand their lost condition apart from God, their need for forgiveness, and their need for a relationship with Jesus Christ. They will begin to understand that, for those who come to God through faith in Jesus Christ . . .

the best is yet to come.

One of the ways that I get through each day with cancer is focusing on this fact that the best is yet to come. At the end of this, I will be with my Lord and Savior. This I know . . . for the Bible tells me so.
