If we are to truly appreciate the fact that we are ETERNAL,as the Bible teaches, then our perspective on life would change/the way we live would change,& our concern for the people around us would change-especially the people we love the most.Truly Knowing that this life has ETERNAL IMPACT,and that everyone is going to spend ETERNITY in Heaven with The Lord,or in Hell away from The Lord...our lives should be different from the lives of those that do not have this Knowledge of ETERNAL TRUTHS,and our concerns should be different also! This is what Paul talks about in 2Cor5:16-21(“So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:The old has gone, the new is here!All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”).Instead,our lives are usually not that different from the worlds,& our concerns about life and the lives of those around us are much like everyone else’s...instead of being different because of the realities of ETERNITY that the Bible teaches!Especially the horrible state of life without the Gospel of Christ being a personal life changing TRUTH in our life,& the lives of the people around us.The Gospel of Christ is not meant to be “fire insurance” that protects us from Hell...,but a life changing TRUTH that makes us a “new creation”(2Cor5:27).Dear Jesus,these verses beg me to survey my life to see where I am being made a “new creation” by Your Gospel,& where I am not?Lord...,forgive me for where I am not,& May Your Spirit & Your Word identify those areas & make those areas a “new creation” in me...so I may truly become “new” in all of me...and be the true Ambassador for Christ that these verses in 2Corinthians call me to be.
