Good morning all,
Before you start embracing the day, take a few moments to reflect on your life- what you have done and what you are doing now. Think about your plan or vision or dream. Does it really matter?
I remember learning about the three states of matter-
I remember questioning if gases were matter … we cannot see gases, are they really real?
Sometimes, when we get distracted, we think that because something is not presently tangible that it is not real. Surely, gases are real, because when brought to the proper temperature, they become solid. God is a spirit, and they that worship Him worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. When the heat turns up in your life, you can depend on a solid, the Rock, Jesus Christ. Yet, one day, not many days hence, we shall behold Him.
When we do, I pray that we have spent our lives doing what matters and that what have done will solidify as we stand before God.
Think about your life. As you think, think about:
your level of influence.
the time that you are investing into your projects.
the people that you are working with, helping, etc.
THEN be honest about the long-term effects of your effort, your life’s work.
Will what you are doing matter in eternity?
Know that the most important things that you can do for your self and for others is prepare for eternity…
After all, that is why we are here. To prepare for what lies after this.
Nothing else matters.
No matter how much money you make, no matter your title at work, and yes, even in the church.
If you have a title, great, what are you doing with it? Don’t get caught up with the humanistic viewpoint or expectations of your title. Seek God.
Are you being a light, and consistently pointing people to Christ?
If not, change gears. Don’t waste your life, your time, and don’t waste other people’s time either.
