We discuss the challenge to live in the present, not hang on to the past or not to be anxious about the future, and to keep an eternal perspective. We talk persecution in other countries compared to how blessed we are here in America.
“If you live in the moment, your impact is bigger than the moment.” – Eric Jackson
“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us reveals the fragrance of the knowledge of Him in every place. 15 For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing: 16 to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life.” 2 Corinthians 2:14-16
Other points: (John 15 – abiding in the Vine) Trusting God – today, and one day at a time. (Prov. 3:5-6) What is real, biblical persecution is compared to the cancel culture of today? (which could very well lead to more attacks on churches, believers) The of looking for opportunities and ways to build the kingdom moment to moment.
