THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH MATTERS.
WE’VE GATHERED SOME OF THE NATION’S BEST LEADERS TO SHARE THEIR WISDOM WITH YOU.
IN LIGHT OF ETERNITY
Every one of us will have to face eternity—to look across the chasm of death to life beyond. Two paths wind away into that never-ending future: one to life with God, and one apart from Him.
For those of us who have chosen to follow Jesus, we look forward to an eternity filled with joy and free from sorrow. The guarantee of eternity means we can live every day on this earth not for our own gain, but for the benefit of God’s kingdom.
So let us lay aside the meaningless things that fill up our days—pursuit of fame, gathering of stuff, swelling of bank accounts. Instead, let us use what we’ve been given in the time we have to proclaim the gospel of Jesus to ourselves, our disciples, and the world. Because, one day, the opportunity to choose eternity with God will close forever.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
I like it!
