Thinking Eternally, Living Fearlessly Part 8

16 Mar

Praise God for eternal life!

So we do not focus on what is seen,  but on what is unseen; for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Cor. 4:18 HCSB

We’ve been talking about thinking eternally for the last 7 times we’ve met together here in cyberspace.  2 Corinthians 4:6-18 lead us on a journey from being saved and receiving the light of Jesus Christ within us to learning to think eternally–even in the midst of great pressure in our lives.  We learned that the key is dying to ourselves.

Mike often says, “Susie, what does this matter in the scope of eternity.”  Sometimes we need to take a step back from the situations we are facing and ask ourselves the same question.

  • Stop and think about it when you’re stressed.
  • Stop and let the light shine.
  • In your personal life:  Keep your eyes on Jesus.  Receive light and more light.  Receive love and more love.
  • In your marriage and other relationships, ask, “What can I say or do right now that has eternal value?  Can I give grace and thereby create a greater capacity in that person through that eternal act?”

Thinking eternally brings peace.
