Topic: Eternity in View
“Yes, each of us will have to give a personal account to God.” Romans 14:12, NLT
Many people spend their lives trying to create a lasting legacy on earth. They want to be remembered when they’re gone. Yet, what ultimately matters most will not be what others say about your life but what God says.
Living to create an earthly legacy is a short-sighted goal. A wiser use of time is to build an eternal legacy. You weren’t put on earth to be remembered. You were put here to prepare for eternity.
To prepare correctly for eternity, you must first be born again. Secondly, you must use all the gifts, talents, opportunities, energy, relationships, and resources God gave you for His purpose. You must be completely surrendered to living out God’s purpose for your life.
Confession: I am not short-sighted. I live with eternity in view.
