Christians can look confidently toward a future with Christ that will be free of the problems and pain we face in this world. But what do we do in the meantime? We live in a world that does nothing to encourage our walk with Christ. In fact, many times the world actively opposes anyone who seeks to live a godly life for Christ, but we can stand strong.
The life of King Asa shows us how to face life head on, and his example points to the value of focusing on God and living in dependence on Him. By the way he lived, God used King Asa to influence those around him, as well as future generations. Even though we too will face challenges, we can live godly lives.
