If you're too troubled about this life, maybe you're not thinking enough about the next.

Often in our discouragement with the world and our circumstances, we assume there’s nothing we can do to become encouraged. In the opening verses of John chapter 14, Jesus gives an example of encouraging thinking to his disciples as he describes eternal life. Looking elsewhere in the bible, we see that eternal life—heaven—is described first and foremost by the ever-present, unhidden, tangible presence of God. And good news: life in the presence of King Jesus is available to us now. If you’re too troubled about this life, maybe you’re not thinking enough about the next life. Imagine how the proper understanding of the next life might help you live your present life to the full.
