Why did Jesus live on earth for 33 years, if his ministry and work lasted less than three years? And why is almost all of his earthly life unrecorded? Aren't we missing something, if the gospels record less than 1% of his earthly life?
Something Christians may not consider as much as we think about Jesus' ministry on earth is his present ministry in Heaven. We know well what he has done for us in the past, but did his service to us end there, or is he also ministering on our behalf right now? If so, what is he doing?
One of the primary evidences of Christian faith is the anticipation of our Savior's return. We who love Christ are a "looking forward" people, eagerly awaiting the day when all will be made right again.
