LOOKING AHEAD - By Elvin C. Myers

By Elvin C. Myers

Scripture Reading: Titus 2:11-14

We live in the present, but we look to the future. There is  nothing wrong with that. We, as believers in the Lord Jesus  Christ, look for His appearing when we shall be caught up  together to meet the Lord in the clouds of heaven . When Paul  wrote to Pastor Titus he called his attention to the "blessed  hope and glorious appearing" of our only Lord and Savior. At  the present time, things are not going well in our country.  Many Americans are no longer ashamed of immorality or  concerned about the disintegration of home and family or the  increase of crime of every description. Our government is  bewildered by problems for which it seemingly has no  solutions. Saddest of all is the decline of the church in  America. Instead of sound expository Bible doctrine, we hear  more and more a philosophy of Christianity and religion. This  should not really surprise us. Paul told Timothy in II Timothy  3 that in the last days "perilous times shall come." The list  that follows can hardly be a description of the ungodly world.  The world has had all these unfavorable features since Adam  and Eve began having children. Verses 2-7 are describing the  decrease of godliness within the professing church.

The preaching of the Word of God, rightly divided, with  a strong emphasis on Pauline dispensational theology is  accepted by very few Christians. Sin is becoming more  acceptable and tolerated. As a new year begins, and as  believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, let us make it our resolve to  follow the admonition of Romans 12:1-2--namely our  reasonable service, unconformed to this godless world system,  daily renewing our minds through the Scriptures, making  every effort to please the Lord who bought us. If we follow  Paul and "continue thou in the things thou hast learned," we  will not go astray doctrinally.
