2020 is well underway. And there are probably some things we thought were “urgent” for this year; other things not so much.
Mostly “heaven” isn’t in our Top 10 list of things that occupy our minds attention. Maybe that could be a helpful change for us, because there’s no greater truth, than the truth of heaven … to give us perspective in life, especially in those times when we face problems ... to help us make it through the tough times of life ... to help us see the great kind of life that God wants us to live … to reduce anxieties in everyday life and show us the significance of everyday life.
Paul, writing to the Philippian church put it this way - “I’ve got my eye on the goal. God is beckoning us onward to Jesus. I am off and running and I’m not turning back. Let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything that God has for us.” (Philippians 3:14)
