Where will you be in 2029?

The Office for National Statistics states that the UK population will reach 70 million by 2029. Every year we are told that 425,000 more people will be living here, the equivalent of a city the size of Bristol. 

What will our country be like in 2029? Will there be room for cars on the road? Will we have the countryside? Will our cities be more polluted? What about jobs? Will it still be an ageing population? What about cultural diversity; what will it mean to be British? Questions which we really cannot answer!

I will be 68 if I am alive in 2029. Have you thought about what age you will be, where you might be and what you could be doing? Now that sounds like a good line for selling life insurance - well, I am not selling, but I am making you aware of reality. None of us knows where we will be in 2029. Our circumstances could have changed beyond recognition. 


What's the worst-case scenario? Well, you say I could be dead! Morbid, maybe; possible, sadly yes.

May I tell you how I feel? Much as I do not particularly want to die, it is not the worst-case scenario for me. For when I die, I am going straight to heaven. 

How do you know you say? To quote the old children's chorus - 'the bible tells me so'. 

After Jesus Christ had died on the cross, he rose again. Eventually, he returned to heaven from where He came. On numerous occasions, such as, John.17.24, the Lord Jesus taught that those who believe in Him (trust and depend on Him for eternal life) on earth will go to be with Him in heaven when they die. Other New Testament books teach this as well, such as Philippians chapter 1 verse 23. That's what I am looking forward to. 

What about you? You go one of two places; the bible also teaches that. You can be sure of heaven! It could be true for you as well, 'the Bible tells me so'.
