Is Eternity On Your Mind?

July 30, 2013

Matthew 16:24-26

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. 25 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. 26 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?


The other day I was in a meeting where two individuals from a financial company were giving a very thorough and informative presentation in the discipline of pensions, life insurance, and retirement. I was sitting there with five other individuals. All six of us were hanging on every word, listening and plugging in their scenario’s into our financial situations. I began to look around the table at these very determined and well-intentioned men, and God began impressing eternity on my heart.

What really began stirring my heart is that this is a common theme throughout our nation and some parts of the world. Men and women, young and old throughout our nation are very determined to be financially stable, secure and prosperous. It is very easy to get people’s attention when it comes to learning valuable things about handling money, saving money, and investments etc. As a culture we have become conditioned to strive and secure such a shaky, unstable, unreliable, and unknown future in the arena of finances. We passionately read books, ask questions, seek experts to guide us, lead us and mold us into being financially stable and prosperous.

But my heart is crying out: Eternity! Why not eternity? Why are non-believers not devouring all available leads, books, experts and theories in eternity? Search for answers. If you truly search with all your heart, with an open mind you will find the truth. The truth that comes from the Saving Grace, and knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Yes eternity truly deals with intangible possessions such as faith and salvation,where skeptics and doubters form. But, Why are we as a people not passionately pursuing eternity in abundance or in at least equivalence as we pursue the frailty of life and finances? If you’re not sure Jesus is the way the truth and the life, then pursue all avenues. Pursue all paths until you can find the truth that is truly incorruptible, eternal, mind renewing and never returning void. When you have found this you will find the peace that passes all understanding.

Build eternal treasures!

Matthew 6:19-21

19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
