The believer in the Lord Jesus, I mean those who accepted Lord Jesus as their Savior,spend the rest of the life in the light of eternity.
What do I mean by that?
Eternity will be in our hearts, in our minds, in our souls and in our every breath.
Then you may ask what eternity is.
Eternity is nothing but living with the Risen Lord Jesus forever and ever.
As we live on this earth, we are subjected to the worldly demands, temptations, and pleasures.
But as believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, the hope eternity fills every facet of our life.
Apostle Peter in his letters asks us a pertinent question.
“What kind of people ought you to be?”
2nd Peter 3:11-14 we see three basic steps to live in the light of eternity.
We have to live with absolute dedication.
Apostle Peter says, “You ought to live holy and godly live”.
Simply to understand that we have to live a separated life
Then he says we have to live with expectancy of the Lord’s return.
In other words, looking forward to His coming back
He continues to say that we have to with diligence.
“Make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and peace with HIM”.
The most important aspect of Peter’s message is this that we have to have peace with God.
Did we ever think about this?
Peace with God!!!!!!
We always pray for God’s peace in our lives but how can we have peace with God.
Peace with God is the KEY to live in the light of the eternity.
If we could make every effort to live a life that pleases the Lord Jesus, we begin to experience peace with God every moment of our life.
We never know when our time comes to go home with Lord Jesus.
But,if we begin to experience peace with God 24/7, we are ready for eternity.
Just remember, we, as believers in the Lord Jesus, always live in the light of eternity.
