It won’t make any difference how much good you are getting from the world or how much you like it. This world is now passing away.
The Lord is coming soon so everything will change. Being married or single count for nothing. Our economic status and our position in the world are totally irrelevant in heaven.
We spend so much time and energy in worldly matters. Our education, job, marriage (or otherwise), family, money, possessions can all dominate our thinking. Christians are not exempt from this.
It is important that we carry out our responsibilities diligently, but none of the things that we get anxious about carry any importance in heaven.
Money cannot save you.
Politicians cannot save you.
A nice house and secure job cannot save you.
We worry about these fleeting things that are inconsequential and neglect the issues of eternity and salvation.
At the gates of heaven we will not be asked, “Did you live in a nice house?”. No it will be, “Do you know Jesus and were you faithful to Him?”
The Lord is preparing us to be citizens of His kingdom. If we incest our love and affections on the things of this world, we cannot be listening to His lessons about eternity.
It’s all about priorities really. Do I live as if this life is all there is? Or do I see a vision of eternity, a distant city on a hill bathed in light that calls me home?
Lord the cares of this life threaten daily to strangle my faith in you. Please help me to die to this life and to live for you. Amen.
