Is There a Heaven ~ Part 5

John 17:3
3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent

Continuing a study by David Jeremiah . . .

How to Live in Light of Eternity

You may be thinking: What next?  How are Christ-followers called to live?  What we think about heaven determines how we live today  We are to set our minds and our hearts on the things above and not focus on trying to profit from this world ~ but instead store up treasures in heaven.  We must make sure that our lives are matching the purpose for which we were created.  We must be diligent to pursue God's righteousness through the Word, prayer, purity, and seeking His will.  Titus, a follower of Christ in the Bible, said, "For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, deying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ."

You know, eternal life does not start when you go to heaven.  It starts the moment you reach out to Jesus.  That is where it all begins!

Psalm 22:26
 The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
Those who seek Him will praise the Lord.
Let your heart live forever!

Every act of our lives strikes some chord that will vibrate in eternity.
Rick Warren
