Topic: Keys to Aligning With What Matters Most in Life
SCRIPTURE: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Hebrews 9:27
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Heaven is real and Hell is real!
MESSAGE: In our previous studies, we have dealt extensively with what matters most in life.
Now, in order to live in line with what matters most in life for the fulfilment of our lives on earth and the guarantee of our eternity with God, take note of the following counsels:
1. Live with the fear of God: Fear God and keep His commandments; for this is the whole duty of man (Ecclesiastes 12:13). Live with the consciousness that there is a God in Heaven who is watching everything we do here on earth and He will reward us accordingly.
2. Live with eternity in view. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7). One day, everyone on earth will expire and face an endless eternity; no level of faith can stop that. To have a clue of how endless eternity would be, imagine the time it would take a little child to empty the Atlantic Ocean with a tea spoon; by the time the Atlantic Ocean has be
en emptied by that child, then eternity has just begun. Heaven is real and Hell is real! So, live with eternity in view.
3. Live with others in mind (Matthew 7:12). Live with love for others. What you sow in the lives of others determines what you will reap.
Remember this: Heaven is real and Hell is real!
1. Go through the counsels again.
2. Make demands on the grace to live a holy life at the place of prayer.
3. Get a copy of this book: WHO ARE YOU? by Dr Paul Enenche, and study it.
4. Maintain intimacy with God by praying, worshipping, studying the Word of God consistently in order to assimilate the Nature of God.
