Life is all about time and what you do with it. Life is a sacred trust, a gift from God that you’ve been given to be used to fulfill the purposes of God. God has a lot to say on the topic. Yesterday we learned we should live with a sense of urgency. Today I want to focus on living for eternity.
The Bible teaches that you had a beginning. But really you don’t have an end. You are immortal. You may only live 70, 80, 90 years on this planet. But that’s not the end of you. Your soul is immortal. God created you that way. In fact, the time that you spend on the other side of death is far longer than what you’ll spend the few years here on planet earth.
I love these words in Ecclesiastes 3:11 “God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart.
In every man and in every woman God has planted the seed that is a reminder to us that this life is not all there is. There is an eternity with God that awaits us. And our rewards in heaven are based upon what we live for on earth. Are we living for ourselves and our personal pursuit of pleasure or are we living for the Lord and the glory of His name.
Almost five centuries ago Protestant Reformer Martin Luther said, “On my calendar there are only two days – today and that day.” “That day” was a reference to The Judgment Seat of Christ when as a Christian Martin Luther would stand before God and give an accounting of how he had spent his life.
That day awaits us all. Live with a sense of urgency, making the most of your time and with an eye on eternity.
