Tomorrow Is Past

“It’s said: ‘Yesterday is history, today is reality, and tomorrow a mystery.’ Despite the mystery and unpredictability about the future, with God tomorrow is as certain as yesterday. Six months before Jesus’ birth, His future mission was stated in the past tense: “God has VISITED and REDEEMED his people” (Luke 1:68, 69). He was in the womb, and His earthly ministry, death, and resurrection lay in the future. Yet, Christ’s mission is written in the past tense! With God, the future is already history. He’s already set things in motion to accomplish our hopes for tomorrow. We can confidently face the future because Jesus Christ has visited our tomorrow and has made it as irreversibly certain as yesterday.”—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
