Seeds of Destiny 25 August 2020 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche
TOPIC: Living with Eternity in View
SCRIPTURE: For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Hebrews 13:14 (NLT)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To live with eternity in view is to know that you have a home beyond the earth.
Recently, I preached two messages on the end time. The titles of these messages are, “Surviving the Last Days” and “Living with Eternity in View”.
Now, when we hear a statement like, “Living with eternity in view”, many times, people don’t understand exactly what it means.
That is why, today, I will like us to see what it means to live with eternity in view.
1. Living in the present with the end in mind.
Living with eternity in view is living in this present time with the end in mind. It is living in the present with the end in perspective (1 Peter 4:7). That is to say, even though you are alive today, the end is on your mind.
2. Living and conducting our life’s actions with eternity as major consideration.
Living with eternity in view is asking yourself questions like: “Where will my life end with what I am doing now? Where will this particular action or lifestyle lead me to in the end?” Living with eternity in view is living and conducting our life’s actions with eternity as the major consideration. It is knowing that everything we do on earth has eternal implications (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14); it is knowing that earthly actions have eternal consequences.
3. Living in the NOW with readiness and preparedness for eternity.
Living with eternity in view is living prepared. It is not trying to get prepared; you are already prepared (Matthew 25:13, Matthew 24:44-45)
Living with eternity in view is living with readiness and preparedness for eternity.
4. Living as strangers and pilgrims in the earth.
It is living with the full knowledge that this world is not your home (1 Peter 2:11). Living with eternity in view is knowing that you have a home beyond the earth.
5. Living in the world without forgetting yourself in the world.
Many people forget themselves in this world by the way they do things; they do not look unto Jesus (Philippians 3:20). They have forgotten who they are and where they are going. Living with eternity in view is living as a citizen of heaven while on earth.
Remember this: Living with eternity in view is knowing that you have a home beyond the earth.
1. Be conscious of eternity in all that you say or do.
2. Live as a stranger and pilgrim in the earth.
3. Never forget yourself in the world.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for the constant revelation of Your Word to me. I receive the grace to live my life with eternity in view Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
