“How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog – it’s here a little while, then it’s gone (James 4:14).
This has been a very interesting week. Two deaths and one person hanging on for dear life. A variance of ages. Because tragedy and death aren’t concerned with age. When tragedy strikes, it often goes for the jugular and neither asks permission nor what age range we fall in. When tragedy hits… it hits. Which is one reason why the Bible is clear about us living wisely… redeeming the time, because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16). We’re not here forever… we have to make the most of our time.
God has a purpose for each of us. And let me let you in on something: it has way more to do with how much money we make, what kind of promotion we get on our job, who we marry, where we live… He can use all of those things… but God’s purpose – first and foremost – has to do with His glory… how we allow Him to shine in and through our lives, and make an eternal impact for Him in this life. His desire is to live in and through us in such a way, that people see what we do and how we live and give Him glory (Matthew 5:16). And in so doing, more and more people – because of our intentionality in living FOR HIM… and not for ourselves – come to know His Son and have their destinies altered. For eternity.
That’s what it’s all about.
Living for Jesus.
With passionate intentionality…
Because tomorrow is not promised.
Our lives are like the morning fog… like a vapor… like a breath. We have no control over when we’re born, and usually little control over when we die… but we all have control over what we do with our lives. EVERY. MOMENT. COUNTS.
Don’t waste your life.
“He died for everyone so that those who receive His new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them” (2 Corinthians 5:15).
