While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal, 2 Corinthians 4:18.
Beloved it is high time we know our only hope for life is Christ…it’s alarming how people focus on ephemeral things not minding if they will have to steal, kill, cheat, and defraud others for it. It’s far more appalling when the mechanism of get rich or die trying becomes a trait amongst many who claim to be members in the house hold of faith….Our claims are inconsequential, it is our life that tells if we are of Christ or of Baal.
When our worship and praise is tied to some material benefits with applauds as our instrumentalist’ sonorously herald the melody,”time na money o” patiently waiting for our capitation at the close of every service….It becomes obvious that the god we seek is the one on the coin not Yahweh.
I am happy to announce to you that the world and everything else will fade away, life will expel its final breath and your stand with Jesus is your only hope for all eternity. Why major on the minors that are temporal and lose sight on the eternal??
Beloved our days on the earth are numbered but in eternity we’ll be forever young and the number of our days will not be a factor to be considered.
Are you with Jesus or not??…Are your eyes solely on the mark?? Do you live soberly as though everyday on earth is your last??….Are you prepared for eternity??
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting, Galatians 6:7-8.
Prayer: Father, please create in me a clean heart, give me the consciousness of eternity and grant me the grace to live everyday as though it will be my last, Amen.
God bless you richly…
Have a Christocentric weekend.
