(Are You Prepared For Eternity?)

TO THE BIBLE: Mark 8:36 AMPC

“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his life [in the eternal kingdom of God]?”

LET’S TALK
Many young people live their lives as though this world is where it all ends, but there’s a life hereafter. Even if God gave you two hundred years to live in this world, it would still be over someday.

After all, he gave some over nine hundred years to live in Bible days, but they still died and left this world.

It doesn’t matter how many years you live on earth, what matters is whether or not you lived for the Lord, glorifying Him with your life.

The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” If all you do with your years on earth is to seek to make yourself happy and fulfil your own dreams, that’ll be an empty life.

When we all stand before the Lord at the end, when He judges all things, His only concern would be what you did with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

He’d only be interested in how you lived the Word, fulfilling and expressing His righteousness. So, it’s about the life hereafter.

Jesus asked the thought-provoking question in our opening verse: “…what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”

If a man had all the fame and glamour in the world, and lived and died without Christ, what would that be, compared to the anguish of living eternally in hell?

We must therefore continue to preach the Gospel and teach men, women, young people, and children in our world and in the regions beyond that life on earth is short; eternity is all that matters.

The time to serve the Lord with wholehearted devotion, and make Him your number one focus, is now.

Pray:
Dear Father, I thank you for helping me see and appreciate the purpose of my life in the earth, in preparing for the life hereafter. My life is dedicated to the spread of the Gospel, and the establishment of your righteousness in the hearts of men and women around the world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
