We experience major milestones in life that we often look forward to. For example, graduations mark an accomplishment. The graduate has passed all the requirements and tests and is ready to step out into the real world!
The birth of a new baby is another such milestone. Parents embrace this joy with a touch of nervousness, hoping to make the right choices and to be good parents.
Retirement is yet another milestone. The thrill of “slowing down” to have more time for family, ministry, travel, and activities can be coupled with questions about finances and health.
Whether you experience all three of these milestones or none of them, one major milestone awaits humanity: one day Christ will return to earth to establish His eternal kingdom. Even followers of Christ can view this event with both excitement and trepidation. We might wonder, What will it be like? Life will definitely change, and for those with a relationship with Christ, it will only change for the better!
