Living In Light of Eternity

Do you ever find yourself in wonder of human life? How incredible it is that the Lord blessed you with the priviledge to be alive today! Isn’t it wonderous how we breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide so that plants can breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen so that we have air to breathe?! Isn’t it incredible that we have the blessing of a beating heart today?!

But, let’s be honest. Do you ever get caught up in thinking that what your life is mundane? That every day is the same? That we live in a never-ending cycle of sleeping and waking, living and dying?

I think that we probably all feel some of both depending on the season we are in. I know I certainly do!

I am guilty of forgetting to live in light of eternity.

Let me say that again- We need to be living in light of eternity. Because the Lord is coming back and He will gather up His people. Because two things will last for eternity: the souls of people and God’s word. Because we don’t get to be here long. Because we will be held accountable for everything we do and every word we speak.

We don’t get to be here long

NEEDTOBREATHE, Be Here Long

That changes things, doesn’t it?!

I am distracted. I forget to live for His glory and in light of eternity- EVEN IN THE LITTLE THINGS! His word says, “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31) Man, this convicts me.

Let me encourage you, what you do matters. The Lord has placed you where you are for a reason. Our lives are not mundane. Let’s live today for His glory and in light of eternity!
