Welcome to Christian Life Church!

       Building for Today? Or Tomorrow?

Think of something that’s tangible today, but will live through eternity. What would

those things be? I can only think of two and if you have any ideas, please help me

out. Many folks live today as if they are going to live forever here in this present world.

WRONG – answer. Things at are tangible to them:

  • Wealth
  • Houses
  • Land
  • Cars
  • Boats
  • Friends/Family

All the above items are all well and good, but it doesn’t last forever. For instance,

an individual’s wealth might be lost in one bad financial business decision. Houses,

whether wood, steal, brick or stone can burn or waste away. Land acquisitions can

take land from one and pass it to another. So what you may think is yours actually

could belong to someone else. Cars will rust and fall apart; boats will eventually will

become “dry docked” and friends and family members can be so fickled that you

don’t know whether they are for you or against you. They can change like dates on

the calendar.           

The only things that can exist in eternity:

  1. The scars on the hands, feet and body of Jesus Christ, and the only thing that you can take into eternity with you:
  2. Your children
  3. Family
  4. Friends
  5. Spouse

Everything else will melt with fervent heat! How hot is hot? In northern California tonight countless hundreds of families are homeless due to a fire that destroyed their tangible possessions. Things that they thought meant all the world to them lies in ashes. Redding, California a city of 93,000 people could be a desolate wasteland of something of yesterday. It becomes just a memory of what was. Heaven is not about what was, but what is and is to come.

  Building and investing in lives today guarantees changing a future.

Never give up or give in ...
