What is there to look forward to?

What is there to look forward to?

Have we thought about this enough, or are we stuck in place looking at the great and spacious building?

We know that the great and spacious building symbolizes the world’s pride. The many inside the building mock and laugh at those on the strait and narrow path.

Turn and look away!

Hold steadfast to the covenant path!

What is there to look forward to when there is a mist of darkness and the only thing we can see is that great and spacious building?

The Apostle Paul defined faith as ‘the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Alma declared that faith is not a perfect knowledge; rather, if we have faith, we ‘hope for things which are not seen, but are true (Alma 32:21).

What is there to look forward to?

Let’s read a few of the lyrics from “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman.” Also, focus your thoughts on Luke chapter 2—The Angel of the Lord tells us exactly what to look forward to.

God rest ye merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay.
For Jesus Christ, our Savior was born on Christmas Day.
To save us all from Satan’s powers when we were gone astray.

Now, here is the Angel telling us what we can look forward to.

“Fear not then, said the angel, let nothing you affright
This day is born a Savior of a pure virgin bright
To free all those who trust in Him from Satan’s power and might.”

Brothers and sisters! What a powerful promise we can all look forward to as we trust Him. He loves us, and we are His.

Hear Him!
