“On that day…” these three words should start the hearts of all of God’s people. For Jerusalem and its children especially, there should be a great hope. As humans, we sit in the midst of moments, but God’s throne and dominion stretches beyond them and in some sense that we cannot comprehend, but is nevertheless meaningful, we will participate in these moments, of which we are not tethered to. Our faith, has for its building blocks, this promise, that “on that day,” God will fulfill his words in deeds that are worth seeing, experiencing and calling for their hastening. Too many believers have a theology of the now. It can be functional, but God is the God of eternity and a God of past and present is a muted God. We must build a theology of future things as well. We must allow him to be the God of our futures too and praise him for what’s to come, knowing that it will be what is cleverest, what is best, and what should happen. We must love what is in store and live in a theology of hope.
MY NAME IS JOSH MCGARY.
First, I am a Pastor of a small church in Portland, Oregon named Aletheia Bible Fellowship. We call it ABF. I have been a pastor there for the better part of 20 years.
I am very eclectic. What I love, I love loudly and immersively. I have notable collections of toys, funko pops, and vinyl. I also infamously love pop culture, comic books, technology, the arts, psychology and philosophy.
