The bible reminds us in Psalm 90:12 to “teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Solomon, the wisest man to every live instructed us to “let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter (life): fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all.” (cf. Ecclesiastes 12: 13)
The bible is God’s word to help us live life to its fullest! The God of the Bible is the same God who “in the beginning created the heavens and the earth.”
The same God who new you when you were in your mother’s womb and who has declared that you are fearfully and wonderfully made!” (cf. Psalm 139: 13-16)
The same God who sent His Son (Jesus) so that you might be saved, and ready for an eternity with Him someday soon! (cf. John 3: 16-18)
We are living in the “last days” and we have been since Jesus was resurrected from the dead over two thousand years ago. In light of eternity, what is two thousand years?! Many of us will die before Jesus comes back, but whether we live or die we should live our present lives with an eternal perspective - our eyes on eternity!
As John Newton penned in that great hymn Amazing Grace - “when we’ve been there ten thousand years!” Our lives on earth are temporal and short, but eternal and for all eternity in the life to come!
Jesus would have you to live wisely in this present age. Jesus told the parable of the ten virgins in Matthew 25. Jesus said that five were wise and that five were foolish. The wise lived out their lives in expectation of the bridegroom coming at any moment. The foolish lived out their lives with no regard of his coming.
And Jesus said that “those who were ready went in with him to the wedding and the door was shut.”
Someday the door of grace is going to be shut! So you and I would be wise to heed Jesus’ warning “watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor hour in which the Son of Man is coming!”
In Christ alone,
