That’s all well and good, Pastor, but I live here and now! The poignant words of someone who is struggling with their current situation in life.
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
And hear also further words of God from Hebrews, “Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday and today, and forever.”
What this means is, O fellow believer, is that the things hoped for and not seen are given to you even today, in the midst of all your struggles in life. Jesus Christ is there, even today, forgiving your sin, through Word and Sacrament, and carrying you through all the joys and sorrows shared.
There will be many things that attempt to place your faith in something else, resist them, for Jesus is the only one who never changes.
