Keller: The present is a gift, though the best is yet to come

Regardless of your age or how long you’ve been a Christian, it’s important to remember that God isn’t finished with you yet. He loves you where you are, but doesn’t want you to stay that way. His message is — the best is yet to come.

I, like most people, struggle with the fact that yesterday is history, the future is a mystery and today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.

I start each day in prayer and read the Bible. Also, I need to occasionally read a few of the following quotes to keep me focused in my spiritual walk:

  • “What we must decide is how we are valuable, rather that how valuable we are.” Edgar Z. Friedenberg
  • “The simplicity of the gospel gives what the complexity of human wisdom promises, but never delivers.” John MacArthur
  • “Christianity knows nothing of hopeless cases.” Alexander Maclaren
  • “The real measure of our wealth is how much we should be worth if we lost our money.” J. H. Jowett
  • “Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection.” Watchman Nee
  • “Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.” Ronald Reagan.
  • “Each day in our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.” Charles Swindoll
  • “The Christian heart… has been thoroughly persuaded that all things happen by God’s plan, and nothing takes place by chance.” John Calvin
