When was the last time you thought about eternity? Most people think about it when there’s an emergency.
But it also wouldn’t hurt to think about it when there’s not an emergency. I was speaking to my youngest daughter and we were talking about the work-time-earning-money ratio. And she said, “Mom my most important asset is my time.”
And she’s right. Not only for herself but also for you and me. How are you spending your time? And that’s why thinking about eternity is important. It helps us evaluate the gift of the minutes we are given.
Leonard Ravenhill, who was one of my spiritual father’s, used to say, “This life is a dressing room for eternity- that’s all it is!”
Sometimes when I’m talking to Christian friends who are having a hard time I say, “Hey, you have a one way ticket to heaven. That booking is taken care of. You’re on the way.” That’s usually met with a smile and a sigh of relief. Ah, the ticket out.
However thinking about eternity also helps set our priorities because there are still a lot of folks who don’t have their booking to heaven. Plus there are good works and exploits the Lord has for you to do and a bit of thought about ‘forever’ reminds us to spend our time wisely now.
So, take a minute and
THINK ABOUT ETERNITY.
And then say, “Speak Lord, your servant is listening.”1Sam.3
In His Love and mine,
Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog
loading? I’m trying to determine if its
a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would
be greatly appreciated.
This site really has all of the information I wanted about this subject and didn’t
know who to ask.
Thanks for reminding us to think about eternity. But when I pray I remember that this world is not our home.
when my friend told me this website I immediately clicked and opened it and I was very happy for all the answers to my questions so far about the car was answered
All one has to do is keep their mind on The Lord Jesus Christ and what HE has done for them and HE will take care of eternity for you.

A constant reminder of who we live for not later , but now .
Blessings Constance, may His nearness strengthen you for your amazing race.
Kathleen – Our congregation just finished reading John Ortberg’s new book, Eternity is Now in Session. It was our all-church Lenten reading/study. So we have been thinking A LOT about eternity. Give it a read. Not at all disagreeing with your thoughts, but he has some insights that challenged us to deeper thinking!
Pam, thanks for recommending this book. I’m so rooted in time, I find it difficult to think about eternity in any deep, meaningful way without help.
