Embracing an Eternal Perspective

Description

The more we align ourselves with an eternal perspective, the more it will have an impact on our short-term and long-term priorities.

I wait for the Lord;
my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope. 
I hope in the Lord,
for with Him is unfailing love and abundant redemption (Psalm 130:5, 7).
 
I have hope in God,
that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked.  
In view of this,
I strive always to keep my conscience blameless before God and men (Acts 24:15-16).

Years ago, a minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him in front of the service station. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.

“Reverend,” said the young man, “sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip.” The minister chuckled, “I know what you mean. It’s the same in my business.”

If ours is an eternal perspective, we will be gripped by the biblical truth that our brief earthly sojourn is designed to prepare us for an eternal heavenly citizenship. The more we align ourselves with this perspective, the more it will have an impact on our short-term and long-term priorities.
