From Here to Eternity

Henry Blackaby, in his excellent book ‘Created to be God’s Friend,’ encourages his readers to ask: How do I measure the value of my life? Do I see my life through the lenses of my circumstances… or as one who is seated with Christ (Ephesians 2:4-7)? “Our lives look different from God’s perspective.”

Do I live as if eternity has already begun? It has!

God didn’t create us for time, but for eternity. By being eternity-minded, my circumstances can find their proper role in my life. Reminded, all that God does is good… trust Him.

The length of time that this trial of suffering will last is brief in view of eternity, but monumental in view of what God is accomplishing.

    God has more for us–He always has more.

    From Ephesians 3 Paul summarizes some of what we were made for:

    14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,…16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

  3. Thinking of two of my favourite quotes –

    If there is no fruit in my life, there is no reason for my existence.

    So live, that when you come to die, you have nothing left to do, but die.
