Living in Dark of Eternity

December 13, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Most people do NOT live in light of eternity like Colossians 3:2 tells us:

“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”**

What is most important in this life are the eternal things that will carry on in the next life. How ironic is that? It’s upside down to most people and many in the world would disagree thinking this biblical truth is insane. Those people have no hope in God and the next life to come.

What will live on in the next life? Our souls in new bodies and the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. Our possessions will no longer mean anything to anyone so why do we work so hard for temporal things? Because we are in the dark not in the light.

So if you are not living in light of eternity, then you are living in the dark of eternal things.

-Mark (learning to set my mind on eternity as I live each temporal day; please pray for me to do this better!)
