Do You Have an Eternal Perspective?

“Christianity is a statement which, if false, is of no importance, and if true, is of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
– C.S. Lewis

 

 

We know that God expects us to provide for our families. This expectation also includes saving for retirement and possibly leaving a financial legacy to our heirs, as well as contributions to ministries and charities we care about.

 

These are all important, however, since we are only on this earth for a very short period of time, (A mere vapor, Psalm 39:5) (James 4:14) (Psalm 90:10), much more important is what happens at our death and where we will spend eternity.  (Romans 6:23)

Do you feel this question is important? If you strongly believe that we just turn to dust when we die and there is no afterlife, then I suppose the question really doesn’t matter much. However, if you hope and believe there is some sort of afterlife, then no other question could be more important.

 

The Bible says you must be born again to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, (John 3:3) (John 3:36) and that salvation is limited to those who exercise personal faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior.

 

Do you agree with this particular scripture? The choice is yours and you must make it. However, before making the most important decision of your life, you might want to take some time to educate yourself. 

 

If you are uncertain what you believe or why you believe it, I would encourage you to take advantage of the following resources to continue your exploration and increase your knowledge. This will provide you with an Intelligent Faith, and enable you to deliver on the command to "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that is in you."  Peter 3:15
