There’s something more than this.

See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you (Isaiah 42:9).

There’s something more than this. That’s the testimony of the Old Testament prophets. Did they have a clear understanding of what they were looking forward to?

Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of the Messiah and the glories that would follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things (1 Peter 1:10-12).

What is God’s Word saying to us here?

There’s something more than this. The Old Testament prophets belonged to the time of the former things. The New Testament apostles belonged to the time of the new things.

What about us? What lies ahead of us?

We’re a bit like the New Testament apostles, and we’re a bit like the Old Testament prophets.

We know that something wonderful happerned when Jesus came to ouir world, when he died for us and rose again for us, but we, also, know that there’s something more than this.

We rejoice in what Jesus has done for us, but we, also, look forward to what he will do for us.
