There are so many questions that we would like for God to answers, wouldn’t we?
We’ve probably got a long list of things we can’t wait to ask Him when we get to heaven, huh? Some of them are probably personal, why did this happen? What were you doing in this? Probably the kind of thing I talked about yesterday.
Some will be about passages of the Bible that we don’t understand or theologically questions. We’ve all got questions that we wonder about.
We aren’t the first The folks that walked daily with Jesus were the same way. Look what happens in Acts 1: 6-8:
So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
That’s a question that so many of us would like to know.
And look at what Jesus said. I’m going paraphrase. Don’t worry about it.
He says it is not for you to know the times or places. Don’t worry about it.
But you know what you can do? Instead of spending time worrying about this, spend time being busy for the gospel. Spend time taking the good news to the world. Spend time living, loving, preaching, serving.
There are a lot of things that we don’t know and may never know. But we know this. There are folks that need to know Jesus, folks that need grace.
And we can use our time worrying about things that we will never know, or we can spend out time, taking the good news of Jesus to a world that needs to know.
There are things we will never know. But we know this. WE are loved by an amazing God. And we need to take that love with us everywhere that we God.
