I often say that my life is in transition. Recently, I stepped back and realized that I have said that for several years. At the moment, circumstances are such that I have little or no idea where that transition will take our family. It would be easy to ask if there is anything certain in life now.
The old joke is that the only things certain in life are death and taxes. However, because of God and Jesus Christ, there is much more certain about life than those two negatives. We can be certain that we have a great savior for us great sinners: Jesus Christ.
We also know for certain that all who know him have a great mission. They may carry out that mission in different ways and in different places. They may have different occupations as they carry it out. Still, all are on the same mission. Every Christian is to glorify God and to make Jesus known to all around them through the lives they live and through the words that they say.
Circumstances may be uncertain. For we who are Christians, our hope and our mission are not.
