Modern writers depict the pessimism of our time and many of them throw up their hands in despair and say, “There is no answer to man’s dilemma.” Hemingway once said, “I live in a vacuum that is as lonely as a radio tube when the batteries are dead, and there is no current to plug into.” Eugene O’Neill in “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” typifies the philosophical attitude of our day. He says, “Life’s only meaning is death.” I say to Hemingway and to O’Neill, who have already gone on, “There is more to life than death.” There is more to life than a radio tube that needs a place to plug into. Jesus taught us the dignity and importance of being a person. God put us on this earth for a purpose, and our purpose is fellowship with God and to glorify God.

Listen to Billy Graham’s 1-minute message on hope for the future.

Prayer for the day

Loving Father, Your love for me transcends the hopelessness of this life and gives me the purpose I so desperately need.

    One of the most difficult aspects of being a Christian is watching unbelieving friends and relatives struggle through very difficult times in life. It’s particularly tough because we love and care for them and wish they would tap into the great joy inner peace that could be theirs as well in Jesus Christ.

    God invited me to join his family. Not because I did anything special. In fact I was and am a sinner , trying to improve, daily. I now have a wonderful new purpose in life and I feel his presence. I am encouraged by his Holy Word each morning. I am a very blessed man. Thank you Lord Jesus for your Love.
