Temporary Living

The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.  1 John 2:17

This earth is our very temporary home. We are passing through hopefully on a journey to heaven. It is easy to maybe think we are just here by some accident, but when you were born, God had a purpose for you. Many deny Him and others who don't,  just say they are Christian but do little else. Pick their church usually in a denomination they grew up in. Go to church. Join the church. Get baptized. But no real change or love for Christ in many cases. 

 Are you a Christian in name only? How is that working out for you? It is the Holy Spirit who draws men unto Him. We can not scream at someone and tell them they are going to hell because often that does not work. There is a verse in Romans 2:4 that says "it is kindness that leads to repentance." Maybe you were in church all your life but it is just something you are used to doing on Sunday and nothing more. My friend, this Earth is just temporary. We are not given the date we will die so it is important to know if this was the day that you knew you were going to be in Heaven with Jesus. Some denominations, that shall remain nameless, like to think they are the only ones. Much false doctrine is out there. Pray for wisdom to discern and know the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

This Earth may be awesome in so many ways but let me tell you Heaven will leave you breathless. Don't get so attached because it is only temporary. Do what you can for the Lord while you are here. 

PRAY: I am not on the Earth just for myself. Help me to show love and help point people to you by what I say and do. In Jesus' name. Amen.
