Our main concern – Eternity

Sometimes in this life I get so distracted, living as if I own my time and disregarding what God’s word tells me about eternity. The truth is we are all bound for an eternal place, whether it’s heaven (life with Christ) or hell (suffering without Christ).

In his sermon “The Many Mansions” Jonathan Edwards explains that eternity should be our main concern here on earth. “Therefore let it be your main care to secure an everlasting habitation for hereafter.” God’s word tells us that if we repentant of our sins and follow Jesus Christ we will live in eternity with Him – this is the greatest gift we could ever ask for! Which eternal dwelling are you headed for?

John 3:35-36 “The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.”

I Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.”
