Many of us live our life as if it is never going to end and we boast about our plans for the future. The Bible challenges us to face reality: ‘You do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appears for a LITTLE TIME and then vanishes away’, James chapter 4 verses 14.
The Lord Jesus said, ‘For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and is himself destroyed or lost?’, Luke chapter 9 verse 25. He spoke of a man, who boasted about what he would do with his vast wealth in the ‘many years’ that he had left; however, ‘God said to him, Fool! This night your soul will be required of you, then whose will those things be which you have provided?’, Luke chapter 12 verse 20.
It is the wise person, who honestly faces up to the question, ‘For what is your life?’ The apostle Paul wrote, ‘God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ’, Galatians chapter 6 verse 14. It is only by trusting Jesus Christ, who died for our sins on the cross, that will enable us to face with confidence the eternity beyond the ‘little time’ we spend here.
