Addicted to the temporal?
Most of us are! We want, more things. Things that we ultimately lose interest in. My new iphone I couldn’t wait to buy, ten months later, well maybe i’ll get the iphone5? Clothes I saved up to buy, I no longer wear. Projects become old.What ignited our fire then does nothing for us now.Blogs we were delighted to start then, has now become a chore. Even good times don’t last no matter how much we would like to relive them forever.
One of the things I’ve enjoyed in my life was preaching in a little store in West Texas with Pastor
Sonny Cathey. The air was thick with praise, the pastor encouraging his church to get behind the speaker. Amens and hallelujahs almost drowning out the preaching. The experience was awesome, At one point I could have stayed there forever, but they say all good things come to an end. The
church closed and the preaching stopped, but not the memory lives on.
Everything in life is temporal, including ministry and preaching. The moments exist for you to enjoy, they form you into the person you are today. the events in our lives shape out thinking, the people we meet help us connect to the past, so celebrate them, talk about them, relive them for they form your life but know this, they are just events.
Trying to find eternality is temporal things is pointless, but temporal things are valuable for what they are. Of course only God is eternal and seeking eternality in temporal things is meaningless and vain. Life is about living eternally in Christ, If I can find “that” I can experience “that” forever! Apart from that, everything else has meaning right now. So with this in mind, take a risk and do it! Whatever you want to do, do it! Irrespective of reward or failure, do it! Nothing is forever except your life in God. Only in Christ is eternality possible, other than that…
Enjoy the moment!.
