Life Is About Redemption

While we focus 99% of our attention on the things of this world, this world is not our home. We’re just ’a passin’ through. The brevity of our life on earth is almost meaningless in comparison to our everlasting life that begins at the end of our brief moment on earth.

Life Is About Redemption

While we focus 99% of our attention on the things of this world, this world is not our home. We’re just ’a passin’ through. The brevity of our life on earth is almost meaningless in comparison to our everlasting life that begins at the end of our brief moment on earth.

Our life on earth is like an internship for Heaven. As creatures of free will, we’re given the opportunity to choose Heaven or Hell. If and when we choose Heaven — more correctly God’s Gift of Eternal Life through the Death and Resurrection of His Son and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ — we’re given but one task to fulfill. To live our lives for His Purpose, which is the Redemption of Mankind.

We’re called to be the salt of the earth and God has salted the earth with our presence. In every country and every situation, with every type of skill and expertise, we are to use all for His Glory. Wherever God has planted you, from being a critical care patient in a hospital to being the leader of a country, it’s your Mission Field. There are no exceptions.

If you’re in a difficult place, don’t waste the opportunity! Your light shines brighter in darkness. Your opportunity to lead people to Jesus is enhanced and you’re in the middle of a spiritual growth spurt. Live your life for His Purpose, the redemption of those around you, in every situation and watch how God uses your suffering to lead those watching you closer to Him.

To put things in perspective, consider how you’ll view your life on earth 1,000 years from now…or a trillion years from now. In the presence of our Holy God, all thoughts of human accomplishment will be laughable if even remembered. The only thing of value from your earthly life, for Eternity, will be how many people are in Heaven because of your influence.

Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store treasures in Heaven Matthew 6:19-20. By holding on to this focus, the sharing of your faith will become as automatic as breathing. For where your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will be also Matthew 6:21.

Romans 12:2 says it best: Be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. So that you can say with the Apostle Paul, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course. I have kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7). And hear God say, Well done thou good and faithful servant…enter into thy reward Matthew 25:23.

Yes! Life is about Redemption!
