Living on borrowed time

The moment you died to self and were reborn in Christ, this is when you have entered the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven already. Not many believers grasp that and that’s why they don’t live this new life now as if on borrowed time. Most believers still try to get the most out of this life by means of prospering and enjoying it to the fullest.

It doesn’t seem to be a sin per se. However, if you imagine that what you do now with this new life affects directly what happens ETERNALLY in heaven, you’d really be acting irrational and reckless not to do what it takes to have a more prosperous and fuller afterlife.

If God really intended the New Testament followers to be happy as they can be, He should rather strike them dead upon salvation… What better place to be completely happy then heaven?

But instead He gave us the Great Commission and in many teachings showed us how to live within this time we really just borrowed in order that we may bring Him glory and honor and fame (instead of just satisfying our own desires).

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I commanded you;
and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
(Matthew 28:19-20 NASB)

Love is in the air

So, there’s this person you found in your life and whoever this is, whenever you see that person’s face, hear that person’s voice, or feel that person’s presence, you are swept off your feet. Day in, day out, you cannot stop thinking of this person. When the day is over, you cannot wait until you see their face, hear their voice, or feel their presence again. Before it becomes an unhealthy obsession, this intense form of infatuation turns into a deeper kind of love for that person. You have this desire to spend eternity with that person. ASAP. Not a minute to waste. The first thing you want to see, hear, and feel every single morning is that person you learned to love. And it better never ends. This intensity should not decrease nor even stagnate. It would be best to be carried away by this growing storm of inner emotions and satisfaction called love. A love focused solely onto a single person in the universe. You belong to each other. You were made for one another.
