Looking Toward Eternity

Posted: March 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

I have recently been reading a couple of books about Heaven and eternity.  A lot of times as believers we talk about Heaven and how someday we will be in a place of no more tears.  We talk about seeing Jesus face to face.  We talk about the great reunion, seeing loved ones who have believed and have gone before.

These are all great things to think about, but sometimes I think we forget that eternity starts now, not just after we die.  I’ve really begun to try to live out of that perspective.  Being driven be eternity has really began to affect me in the areas of pursuing holiness, meaning continue to put of sin, and in evangelism.

I just wanted to share that and ask you what being eternity minded might mean to you.

    I think of the verse in Ecclesiastes that says “he has put eternity into man’s heart”. For me eternity is all about living from my innermost being and not my mind.

  2. This is such an important perspective. It’s a paradigm shift that changes everything about how you think about salvation (that we’re saved not just for the future, but we’re saved for the now too) how we see the world we live in and our role in it, and heaven, and what we look forward to in our future there. This has been transformational in my own faith and life. Thanks for sharing.
