We rely on the living God, Who is the Savior … (I Timothy 4:10.
Our expectation is built and settled “on the living God.” That means we are optimistic in every way. As we begin this new year we look forward to great things. But these are not great things of our accomplishment or as measured by the world about us. We expect the great blessings of joy that issues from appreciation of God’s grace; of peace that issues from acquaintance with God’s work of conciliation; of invigoration that issues from the evangel that is God’s power for salvation. Like Paul, we are not despondent, even though our bodies are decaying and we stumble into all sorts of troubles and perplexities, because we know these things are temporary, even momentary in comparison to what God is leading us into (II Corinthians 4:7-18). God is living, and He is saving, and He is bringing about “a transcendently transcendent eonian burden of glory.”
