How the Way You View Eternity Affects the Way You Live Today

“I think I’m about to lose my job,” a friend told me, “The writing is on the wall.”

God Has a Plan for Your Life
“Goodness, I’m so sorry,” I said. “If that happens, just remember that God has a plan for your life.”

He continued with his perception of evolution that in his mind erased any notion of God’s creation.

I got a little bold and asked if evolution was indeed true, and if we “evolved” and eventually became a greater and greater “being,” why is it we’re not physically getting better and better every day? And why are we all aging and, without exception, we all ultimately die?

No answer.

So, I asked, “What happens when you die?”

“Nothing, that’s it,” he said.

Yikes! How’s that for hope and for reassurance?

To live your life only until you physically die is like preparing and packing for a vacation only to spend it at the airport.

No one would do such a crazy thing.

But living with the notion that physical death is the end can only end up sinking in subtle hopelessness—no life after the last breath. No expectation of heaven where the best awaits. No joy anticipating all suffering to end.

How can we believe this life has meaning if we don’t find meaning in God’s promise when He says: “Truly, truly I say to you, whoever hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has eternal life and shall not come into condemnation, but has passed from death into life” (John 5:24)?
