“If, in the manner of men, I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me? If the dead do not rise, ‘Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!” 1 Corinthians 15:32
The future is coming, with inevitable consequences. Regardless of how much we may resist this reality, it is true. This means that everything about our lives will change. Sometimes it happens all at once. Sometimes gradually.
We experience this kind of change in our minds and bodies. To this point, the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic reports that “every function of the human body declines 5% every 10 years.” It is known that age-related hearing starts declining at 25years of age and that many start losing bone mass in their 30s.
The Speed of processing and working memory peak in the 20s and gradually start declining. Vision often starts deteriorating around the age of 40.
These may seem like depressing doses of reality. But the fact is that these patterns are inevitable for all of us. Yet some ignore them. Others simply delay dealing with them.
But consistent recommendation of physicians and professional researchers is to prepare for the future as early as possible. Many doctors confirm the recommendation that the earlier we start preparing the better.
These patterns also are true in the spiritual realm. The fact is that life is short, for all of us. And we all inevitably will face YAH and give an account of our lives. Many simply deny this reality. Others avoid the subject, throwing themselves into a life of short-term pleasures that don’t last.
Sha’ul(Paul) urged us to realise that we have choices about how we prepare for the future, and our eternal destination and to realise that the Gospel is true.
In your life, how are you preparing for the eternal life. Where you will spend your eternity.
ADONAI YAHUSHA said in Mark 8:36,”For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul”?
Let us pray:
Our Father in heaven, I want my life to count for Your Kingdom. May you be pleased with my choices. Guide me. Correct me when I’m wrong. Teach me. Help me do what is right. In the Most Holy and beautiful name of YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH our saviour.
