For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

Christ: The Hope For Tomorrow

Mark Dever said:
You have not met a trouble that you will not outlast if you are in Christ . . . If God wants you to live yesterday again, He will give it to you to live tomorrow.

Tim Keller writes:
As a child blossoms under the authority of a wise and good parent, as a team flourishes under the direction of a skillful, brilliant coach, so when you come under the healing of the royal hands, under the kingship of Jesus, everything in your life will begin to heal. And when he comes back, everything sad in your life will come untrue. His return will usher in the end of fear, suffering, and death.

Timothy Keller, King's Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus (New York: Dutton, 2011), 16-17.
