IMG_5716LIVING LIFE IN VIEW OF ETERNITY
Those things which the world craves for, the perishing pleasures of this world, do nothing for the soul. In fact, they serve as a distraction and deterrent to spiritual concerns.

“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, only to lose His soul.” (Mark 8:36). This is a grave reality, and a growing concern… Many refuse to identify with Christ in His sufferings and afflictions, in desperately trying to hold on to the comforts of this world.

On the flip side, there are those who have given up much to follow Christ. They have counted as loss, those things highly esteemed by the men and women of the earth, for Christ’s sake. They know this life, is nothing, compared to the life to come.

The love of God will make a person turn their back on the perishable, to focus on the eternal. With eyes in view of eternity; the eternal promises of God, everything else becomes a mere shadow. In the light of Christ, the world becomes a very dark place.

For all who have counted all loss, for the love of the Lord Jesus Christ, Christ is your abundant recompense and your exceedingly great reward.
