The Inconsolable Longing, Part Two

Description

Don’t forget that life is not just the time we have here on earth; we are immortal, and according to the Bible, we as Christians will live forever in God’s presence.

One thing I have thought about lately: If a life is cut short, is that it? What if a life is hampered by disability or illness? Or shorter than what we had hoped for, due to death—like when a child dies, or a young man or woman? They had no control over these circumstances. Are these people just ones who just lose?

Then you see other people, living out their lives to advanced years and doing nothing with them or, worse yet, living wicked lives.

We are immortal

Don’t forget that life is not just the time we have on earth for our short stay here. We are immortal and, according to the Bible, we as Christians will live forever in God’s presence.

We will go to heaven when we die as Christians, but we will also see God’s kingdom come to earth when Christ returns, where we will live and reign with Him for 1000 years.

We will be busy in the future

We will not be idle during our time in heaven or earth. We will be busy, doing the Lord’s work (see Revelation 7:15; 22:3).

You wonder if we will be able to finish some of the tasks that remain incomplete on Earth? Or perhaps dreams that were shattered here will be fulfilled then?

Listen, God will not waste or squander any life or gifts. Death for the believer is not the end of life, but a continuation of it in another place. He has other places and times when those gifts may be fulfilled. How, we do not know.
