He who has no vision of eternity has no hold on time. -Carlyle
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
Living in the light of eternity has the meaning of a great expectation of the imminent return of the Lord Jesus. It does not mean we sit back and do nothing. What we need to do is be patiently preparing for His return, patiently pondering His return, and patiently proclaiming His return. As we live in that light, we will see Him continuously working in the lives of the lost, hurting, and dying of this world!
Are you living in the light of eternity or are you living in your own light?
