Life on earth is not all there is, life on earth is like a life rehearsal before the real drama begins.You will spend far more time on the other side of death-in eternity than you will here.
The earth is a staging area, it is like a pre-school, the tryout for life in eternity.This life is preparation for the next. At most you live 120 years on earth but you will spend forever in eternity.
Sir Thomas Browne said ‘ your time on earth is but a small parenthesis in eternity.’ God designed us in his image to live for eternity.
Death is Inevitable, we all know that we die someday, however, when it occurs, we feel it is unnatural and unfair.The reason we feel this way is because we have been wired by God to live forever. One day our heart will stop beating, that will be the end of our body and time here on earth, but it will not be the end of you.
While life on earth may offer many choices, eternity offers only two: Heaven or Hell. Your relationship to God on earth will determine your relationship to him in eternity.
If you learn to love and trust God’s son, you will be invited to spend the rest of eternity with him. on the other hand if you reject his love, forgiveness and salvation, you will spend eternity apart from God forever.Tragically, many people will have to endure eternity without God because they chose to live without him here on earth.
When you fully understand that there is more to life than just here and now and you realize that life is just a preparation to eternity. you begin to live differently, this realization will colour how you handle every relationships, task and circumstances.Suddenly, many activities, goals and even problems that seem so important will appear trivial, petty and unworthy of your attention.The closer you live to God, the smaller everything else appears.
