“I PLAN TO LIVE FOREVER!” Sunday Sermonette

” Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.  I am the bread of life. “  John 6: 47-48 NIV

 

Read:   John 6:43-59

 

The misguided man openly joked; “I plan to live forever and so far I have been successful.”    Unfortunately, he was talking about living forever in a decaying body on this earth.   That is not a part of GOD’S plan and it is not even wishful thinking.

 

GOD has another plan.   Our life on this earth is a thousand times smaller than the period at the end of this sentence.  But, for believers we have a life to come that is larger, more magnificent, while basking in the HOLY light of GOD for all eternity.

 

Unfortunately, most will never see the glory of Heaven.   They are so absorbed with living their life on this earth, they never consider the GOD who created them, JESUS who died for them or the HOLY SPIRIT who could reside with them until they are welcomed into Heaven.   They all will be cast aside, never knowing the salvation they can have.

 

If you want to be successful at living forever, change your focus.  Living forever is living for all eternity.  Our days on this earth are limited, but for those who are believers our days are never to be limited.

 

Today’s prayer:  “Thank YOU, JESUS, for coming to earth to offer eternity to all who trust and believe in YOU.   I will pray today for all those who do not know YOU as SAVIOUR of the world.  Amen. ”
