Passing Away

“This world is passing away, along with everything it craves. But if you do the will of God, you will live forever.” 
1 John 2:17

The holidays are a special time, a most wonderful time of the year, when we get together with family, reconnect with old friends, and celebrate. It’s a time when we can forget our diet for a while, prepare our favorite food, go out and spend more than we usually do. We can plan trips abroad, fun activities and get a little crazy. 

But these are holy days too. After all, the reason for the Christmas season is to celebrate the greatest gift of all, the gift of God’s love and His invitation to live forever with Him. It says clearly in 1 John 2:17, if we do His will, we will live forever! 

Sometimes I wonder about some people who act as if they will live forever here on earth. They cheat, lie and commit all manners of extortion to amass wealth and power. They live like they are entitled to commit any sin without consequences. They do not realize that with each lie, each act against God, their spirit is laid to waste. 

We should take the time to come before our God who wants the very best for us, and see if there is anything we are doing that desolates our spirit, the part of us that will live forever. Let us make 2018 the very best year yet!
