Topic: Preparing For Eternity [07/11/2016]
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21. Read: Php 1:20-24
"If I am given six years to fall a tree, I will use four years to sharpen my cutlass, then use two years to bring down the tree". Abraham Lincoln. That is preparation that brings instant result. If you do not plan, you have already planned to fail. Humanity knows how to plan for everything for a better result and for a comfortable life in the future. We plan our vacations, plan wedding anniversaries, birthday parties, burial anniversaries and so on. Many are so wise to have insured their properties and taken life insurance policies.
We're entangled with physical preparations because the physical is more valuable to us than the eternal. Thus we fall into the category of "seeing is believing ".
Many know how to prepare for their lives in this passing world, but don't know how to prepare for the life everlasting. After death, Life without end begins whether in eternity with God in heaven or eternity with Satan in hell. So true,so real. To prepare for eternity while on earth is to surrender to Jesus,live for Him and please Him. Focus your gaze on Him only (not on your Pastors) to avoid distraction. Let your life glorify Him and your death precious in His sight beloved.
* Father, empower me to prepare for eternity by living for You here on earth in Jesus name.
