(Ecclesiastes 12:13) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter, Fear God and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man
Everything does not end here on earth, there is a life hereafter called eternity. There is a great deviation from living a life with eternity in view. So many believers have abandoned the core reason for Christian belief and pursuing mundane things of this world. Even preachers have forgotten that the world is not our Home, but we are just passing through and that Heaven is the ultimate goal. God has planted eternity in the heart of human beings. Eternity means a timeless or endless existence. Live your live correctly today so that you will not be embarrassed in eternity. Living with eternity in mind helps us to avoid the tragedy of a wasted life. Being driven by eternity helps you to become your best and all that God wants you to be in life. Live life with eternity in view!
How to Live Eternity Driven Life:
Live with a clear and good conscience (see Acts 24:16 & I Tim 1:18-20. Conscience requires moral weakness found in every human being.
You must be submissive and accountable to God. Submission is not weakness; it is the understanding of grace. Lack of submission removes grace from a man.
Live your life to please God. Consider where you stand with God because that will determine your place in eternity.
Live life at your best – No malice, quarrelling, animosity, anger and bitterness. Live each day at your best (see Ephesians 5:6, Hebrew 11)
If you will truly live life with eternity in view, it would have three very important effects upon your lives:
It would cause you to get your priorities right. It would help you to evaluate and judge everything in life by its value to the cause and kingdom of Christ.
It would harden you against the trials and temptations of life.
It helps you to value people more and properly. You will quit looking at people as mere physical beings, but as priceless, never-dying souls that have only a short, perilous time of preparation here before they end up stuck somewhere in eternity forever and ever.
Child of God, run the heavenly race to obtain the imperishable crown. Discipline your body so as not to fulfill the sinful desires of the flesh. Put your body under subjection, so that you live a pleasing life unto God.
Meditation: Heaven is real and hell is real. Where will you spend eternity?
