  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...




Jesus Is Coming Back

Fantastic future: Robots and space-age clothes

What was life like when your grandparents were your age? They didn’t have many of the things that are common today, like cell phones, DVD players and laptop computers. The world is changing quickly. New gadgets are being invented every day.

Did you ever wonder what life might be like by the time you’re a grandparent? Scientists, engineers and other curious people ponder that question a lot. Based on what they know about today’s technology, they say the future could be pretty amazing.

Imagine plugging a video game into your shirt. In the future, you may wear clothes made from special fibers that collect energy from your movement or from the sun.

Walls in the future could be made of surprising materials too. It may be possible to change a room’s color, add pictures, or even move windows with the punch of a button. Decorating would be as easy as switching the background on a computer screen.

Robots will be smarter and more common. You may have robots that pick up your laundry, make your breakfast, and guard your house while you sleep. These clever androids may even be able to recognize different members of the family.

In tomorrow’s world, there may be cars that drive themselves, hovering motorbikes, X-ray glasses and other inventions too wild to imagine.

We can’t know for sure what people will come up with. But there are some things we can be certain about. All the promises in the Bible will come true. After His death and resurrection, Jesus returned to His Father in heaven. But Jesus promised He would come again to take His followers to be where He is.

“In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am” (John 14:2,3, NIV).

Jesus will come back just as He promised. It could be many years from now. Or it could even be today. When we accept Jesus as Savior, an amazing future with Him is guaranteed.
