I have been reading in the book of Ecclesiastes lately. It can be a depressing book unless you realize the point. Life is useless, pointless and has no merit or value apart from a thriving relationship with God. All that you do is for nothing unless there is eternal significance attached, Attach eternity to your purpose and it becomes a game-changer. I have been highlighting words like eternal and everlasting in my bible as well. Few things meet this criteria.
Life can be eternal as promised by Jesus Christ to those who believe. Jesus can to give abundant life on earth and eternal life in heaven. O to be with Him throughout eternity!
God's Kingdom also has no end. This is so important to me. Of all the rulers, kings and leaders of the world, only the kingdom of God will last.
The Word of God lasts forever. No wonder the Bible has been the most popular, biggest seller and lasting text of all time. In fact, it will outlast time itself!
So the question becomes....what have you done that is eternally praiseworthy? The answer is nothing. Only when we join in thee works of Jesus can the vanity of life be altered to garner any significance. This can only mean that whatever you do for Christ will last and last and last. Some people are concerned with gaining money to leave for their children or gaining land for future exploits. My choice today is to impact my world for Jesus Christ. My legacy will be an eternal one. How about you? Let's make the choice today to not let one more day be in vain.
