We are Living In Our Eternity Today!
Your life will go on for eternity.
How we relate to our creator is being determined by our rejection or our worship of him today.
We cannot avoid the reality nor should we refuse to deal with it.
Everything we do is in relationship with Christ, that includes our unbelief and our sin.
Separate from the Lord, our most impressive labors and achievements in life are nothing. Our nation, our civilization built as they are on the sands of time(Our careers, bank accounts, reputations, legacies, families, etc.) will quickly fade. Our legacy may escape the pandemic, fires, floods etc., and may outlast our brief lives,. The day will come however when “the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed,” and every work outside of Christ will be “dissolved” (2 Peter 3:10–11).
In the Lord, no labor we perform today is in vain. Yes our strength may be weak, our lives brief, and even our reputation may not be noticed. Yet if we devote our days to living “in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Colossians 3:17), then God himself will establish the work of our hands.
We’ll enjoy glory, power, honor, incorruptibility, and immortality beyond what Adam and Eve ever enjoyed in the Garden of Eden (1 Cor. 15:43–49, 50–58).
We must always number our days which begins with numbering this very day!
Today is unrepeatable, a God-given 24 hours, filled with invaluable opportunities to labor in the Lord. We gain a heart of wisdom if we allow eternity to pass itself down into the present, teaching us to live today in light of forever. What kind of work we have ahead of us today is of little consequence.
What matters is whether we do it unto the Lord.
If we do, then God himself will establish the work of our frail and dying hands as we live eternity for him!
