Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.”
John 6:27 ESV
This world has so many cool things about it. There is nothing wrong with having fun and enjoying life.
But if your focus and your heart value the things of this world more than God, then you might have a serious problem in your relationship with Jesus.
This world is temporary. And Jesus Himself said that we should work for the food that endure to eternal life. For Jesus, the focus was on eternity.
How often do you think about eternity? Does it come to mind at all? Or do the things of this world completely take over, filling your mind and heart with wanting more of this world than wanting more of Jesus?
We live in this world. We do life here, build relationships, work, have a family, etc… But our time here is short compared to eternity.
Get a revelation of eternity in your heart and mind. Get a revelation that this place is temporary and not your home.
You will see thing differently. The things that matter now will then fade away because you are fixed on Jesus.
Father, help me to live like this world is temporary. Help me to accomplish Your will here, but not be so attached that I’m not ready to fly in the twinkling of an eye.
