Afterlife Day 7
Scripture: Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Devotional: Today’s passage is a great reminder that God has set eternity in our hearts. You and I are made to live for something greater and far beyond our earthly lives.
Death is our transition to that spiritual realm. Though it’s natural to fear death and pain, we can be reassured that death can be beautiful for the believer in Jesus Christ. Particularly when we live in such a way that our minds are on things above. Colossians 3:1-4 encourages us in this:
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
How are you choosing to live in light of eternity? Because what you believe about death and eternity determines how you live.
- What does how you live say about what you believe about death and eternity?
