earth: a small piece of your forever

If you think about it, this world is a never ending cycle of people doing the same thing over and over again: born, learn, work, die. So unsatisfying. If this world is just a cycle of people living and dying and doing the same thing over and over again, then what is the purpose of being here? Thinking about this almost makes you feel so insignificant in the long run. But, when you realize there is everlasting hope found in Jesus, then you know this life on earth is just a minuscule piece of your eternity. So here is my question….what are you going to do with this small piece of time you have spent on earth? Are you going to fall recklessly in love with the Lord and live to serve Him and His kingdom, or are you going to fall for the pressures of society and live to please the world? For believers, earth is the closest they will ever get to Hell, and for non believers, earth is the closest they will ever get to Heaven. I choose to be a light in this dark world….what about you?

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” -1 John 2:15-17

“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” -Galatians 1:10
