In the Light of Eternity

Posted: October 04, 2016

If you’re like me, it’s easy to get caught up in your day-to-day stresses and problems and forget that your time here on earth is “just a vapor” in light of eternity (James 4:14 NKJV).

When you are starting to feel weighted down by the things in your life that may only have earthly significance, take a step back and examine your priorities. When you look at things in the light of eternity, sometimes what seems important and what seems unimportant can quickly change.

What are you spending the majority of your time focusing on? The things that will pass away with this earth? Or the things that have eternal significance?

Don’t waste your time on things that have no eternal significance! Don’t wait until tomorrow to reprioritize. When your day of judgment comes, be sure that your name will be written in the Book of Life!

“I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books…And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.”

- Revelation 20:12 & 15 NLT

Lord, thank you that through the saving blood of Jesus my name is written in the book of life. Help me to focus on the things that have eternal significance so that I don’t fall away from you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
