THE CHIEF APOSTLE'S MESSAGE
Article by: Apostle F. Dzur
Once again, let us reflect on this year’s motto, “Christ, our future.” Christ makes it possible for us to reach this future. It is wonderful to be a future-oriented people. That is the beauty of being youthful. Young people have a wide-open view towards the future with all its possibilities.
No matter our age or our circumstances we can look towards the future with confidence knowing Christ has elected me! As our Chief Apostle served in the very first service of this year “Jesus Christ initiated this calling in full awareness of who we are, He did not make a mistake when He called you and me. He also will give us the strength and energy to reach this goal.”
We are asked to look up to Jesus Christ. The wonderful Bible text out of Hebrews 12: 1b—2 remains an inspiration for us, “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.”
As in all competitions, we keep our eye on the goal, the finish line where victory waits for us and where the crown of eternal life will be given by our Lord Jesus Christ through His grace.
We cannot allow ourselves to become distracted and discouraged. We do not want to focus on our difficulties, on our needs, or accomplishments, nor on what others say, think or do. We remain focused on Jesus Christ, who will provide all we need.
We are encouraged to look to Jesus Christ who calls out to us and asks us to trust in His love, grace and omnipotence. He gives us the guarantee, if we follow Him, our future is secure.
