So the BIG question today is: If what you did in the next 24 hours was how you'd spend the next 1,000 years, what would you do? Think about this carefully.
People today are planning better for their retirements than they are planning for eternity. That's a bit scary.
Everyone is going to face judgement...including Christian believers. Many Christians don't think this is so, they think because they are born-again, saved, they won't face any judgement. They think they've got a one-way ticket to heaven. But that's not what the Bible says.
Believers won't be judged by their sins - the cross cancelled out their sins - they are counted as though they never happened. God wiped them off the record. Believers will be judged by what they were called to do. Each of us, as believers, has been called to do something - its our job to seek God to find out what that call is and to do it. God called each of us to the task He's assigned, before the very foundations of the earth! And if we don't do what we're called to do - God will find someone else to complete it and we'll be judged in light of not doing what we were called to.
Knowing this, don't you think you should be thinking eternally?
These are just a few of the things we've been teaching every Tuesday. First, we learned how to Break Intimidation, now we're being Driven by Eternity, so that we can move into living an Extraordinary life.
Just some food for thought, in between classes today. Once we've completed the entire teaching series, I'd like to reteach those lessons here...so stay tuned and in the meantime, give some serious thought to how you'd live the next 24 hours of your life, it was to determine how you'd live the next 1,000 years because what we do in this life, will determine how we'll spend eternity.
