A friend of mine, in a thoughtful letter, responded by email to yesterday’s post.  At the end of his letter, here is what he wrote:

“So what is the conclusion to the whole matter? Fortunately, we both know.  “And where I go you know, and the way you know.”  “Let that abide in you which you have heard from the beginning.”  (I highly recommend reading 1 John, chapters 1 & 2 here.)   No matter what, and no matter what the hour, our calling is the same.  It does seem late, so perhaps it is more important than ever that we hear His voice so we can be led by Him. Certainly, we still need to love one another as He loved us.  (Perhaps all of 1 John would be good to read here!)

I agree. Regardless of what the future holds, it all boils down to this: Love Jesus.  Follow Him.  Love others.
