Many people feel uncertain about the future. They worry about staying healthy, what they eat, how to stay fit, catching a contagious disease, holding onto their job, finding peace of mind, actions of officials in office, and climate change. Anxiety, depression, and fear seem to rule the day for many. But it doesn’t need to be that way!
Life is not a haphazard, uncertain roll of the dice. It is not at the mercy of chance, risk, or the whims of time. Understood spiritually, life is God. God is Life! And this Life is all good. There isn’t anything uncertain about it.
We can all choose to live the Good Life. Jesus Christ has shown us how to do it. He taught us to be faithful to the Ten Commandments, live the Sermon on the Mount, the Golden Rule, love God with all your heart, and your neighbor as yourself. He proved that when one lives in harmony with God, they can face evil fearlessly and conquer it. Jesus certainly had trials, some severe, that he had to deal with, but he faced them fearlessly knowing that God’s good would triumph in the end. And it always did. He did not fear the future. He determined it by living in accord with God.
Jesus lived the Good Life—the spiritual Life of God—that enabled him to conquer all the evils of the flesh and ascend to eternal Life with God in heaven.
We can do the same! We can live the Good Life. We can strengthen our morals, spiritualize thought, pray, listen, and follow God’s direction as it comes. The Mind of God will always tell us what we need to know to surmount evil and leave it behind.
We do not need to fear the future. We form and shape it by living in accord with spiritual truth now.
Our Life with God is a certain thing. It’s fixed, ours forever to enjoy. There is no better time to live it, than now!
