The life that many seek, is not always the life God desires we live. Many folks are more interested in the material things in life, and we see to often people risk it all just to take hold of what the world says is “THE LIFE”. It is such a draw for many to have that life, but the fact is you can’t take it with you into eternity. Satan knows this is a temptation for us. It was also a temptation for Christ. Satan tempted Jesus with this in Luke 4:1-13
This is not what’s important. This is not what God has in mind for us. It’s true, God desires us to be a prosperous people, but as we prosper we must keep our perspective on what is most important in “THE LIFE”: the abundant life that can only be offered by Christ. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 (NKJV) God offers His children this abundant life. This is “THE LIFE”!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”
I Peter 1:3 NKJV
Let’s all strive for THE LIFE
I can’t wait to see you
