Is that true? God’s Word says it is, in the spiritual sense.
“With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day.” 2 Peter 3:8
Is it any wonder that enemy baits us into a busyness that gets us to diminish the power, the wonder, and the gift of today?
We assume we’ll have more time to do what matters.
We assume we’ll have another chance to share the truth of Christ with that friend who is far from God.
“Today is the day of salvation.”
“Today is the day when we can invest in eternity.”
If you really knew that the investments you made kingdom-wise today were multiplied a thousand times over in eternity, would you live differently today?
Would you respond to people differently? Would you give more away? Would you pray more audaciously?
God wants us to live with eternity in mind when we live in the abundance that trains us.
“Today is worth a thousand years in eternity. But what we sow is what we grow.”
So if we just squander today like will have a thousand more of these days tomorrow, and the next day, we won’t think very much about the words that come out of our mouth that are slurs on our friends, and our neighbors, or our pastor, our husband. We won’t think very much about not engaging faith and deciding to worry instead.
Consider the other side.
Consider that you matter so much, that all of heaven is on your side, that Jesus says that every promise in Scripture is yes and amen to you…that you’ve been given these promises so you can participate in the divine nature….
How we live here does echo into eternity; we’re just getting started living eternity even now, with the kingdom steps that we take.
“The one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.”
