A while a back a popular evangelical leader wrote a book convincing Christians that we are to find our best life now, on this Earth. Most believers know that Jesus’ teachings focused on our best life yet to come. That those who are last in this life, will be first in eternity. That our priority in this life is to be a servant to all, and master to no one. We should not be looking for the best life now, but rather, how we can touch lives of others with The Truth- even if it means enduring hardship, discomfort, or unpleasantries for ourselves.
No one knows these truths more than missionaries and martyrs- those who give up their life for Christ, even face death for the Truth of God’s Word.
Please watch this video. It is a reminder to all of us to keep our eyes on Jesus, and to seek after things of heaven, not of Earth.
“Those who want to save their lives will give up true life. But those who give up their lives for me and for the Good News will have true life.” Mark 8:35
